O videoclipe mais surreal da era MTV

Os efeitos de computação gráfica podem parecer primitivos hoje, mas o impacto geral ainda é alucinante. “Where’s Your Head At” da banda Basement Jaxx fez enorme sucesso e foi premiadíssimo em 2001.

É uma faixa do álbum “Rooty” (veja no iTunes). Típica representante da Indie Music européia, essa banda britânica surgiu em Londres em 1994 e atua até hoje.

Em julho passado, ao anunciar a turnê deste ano na Grã-Bretanha (nov/dez 2014), a banda publicou um novo vídeo, que reconta a história do vídeoclipe  –  “The Secrets Behind the Basement Jaxx ‘Where’s Your Head At’ Video“.

 

Em seguida, veja o vídeo recente, uma espécie de making-of  revisitado do primeiro. A propósito, a banda tem uma página no Facebook aqui.

 

 

Where’s Your Head At

Where’s your head at? (at? at? at?…)

Where’s your head at?
(Where your head at? Where your head at? at? at? at? at? at? at?)
Where’s your head at?
(Where your head at? Where your head at? at? at? at?)
Drop it

Okay are you ready? I’m ready! Yeaaah!!!

Where’s your head at?
(Where your head at? Where your head at? at? at? at? at? at? at?)
Where’s your head at?
(Where your head at? Where your head at? at? at? at? at? at? at?)

Don’t let the walls cave in on you
We can’t live on, live on without you
Don’t let the walls cave in on you
We can’t live on, live on without you
Don’t let the walls cave in on you
You get what you give that much is true
Don’t let the walls cave in on you
You turn the world away from you

Where’s your head at?
(Where your head at? Where your head at? at? at? at? at? at? at?)
Where’s your head at?
(Where your head at? Where your head at? at? at? at? at? at? at?)

Where’s it at? Let’s go!

Okay are you ready? I’m ready! (go go go!)

You have now found yourself trapped in the incomprehensible maze…

Where’s your head at? (Y’all know how it be)
Where’s your head at?
Where’s your head at? (You don’t make it easy on yourself)
Where’s your head at? (What you give is what you get…
Is what you get… what you get…)

At… at… at… at…

[freestyle vocals]

Where’s your head at?
(Where your head at? Where your head at? at? at? at? at? at? at?)
Where’s your head at?
(Where your head at? Okay are you ready? Where your head at? at? at? at? at? at? at?)

Don’t let the walls cave in on you
We can’t live on, live on without you
Don’t let the walls cave in on you
We can’t live on, live on without you

Watch it!!

Where’s your head at? (watch it!) Where’s your head at?
We can’t live on, live on without you
We can’t live on, live on without YOU!!!
