Music Videos You Should See 2/21/12

Welcome to another edition of Music Videos You Should See.  In this article, it is all about electronic music.  Let’s go ahead and dive in.

First up, we Avicii “Levels”.  This song was sampled in Flo Rida’s “Good Feeling”.  The concept for the video is a dancing virus that first infects a typical office worker and he passes it along to some orderlies and a nurse.  Very zombie style.

The next video is from LMFAO, the band that brought us “Party Rock Anthem”.  This time around their anthem is “Sexy and I Know It”.  This video has numerous celebs making cameos: Ron Jeremy, Simon Rex, and Wilmer Valderrama (Fez on That 70s Show).  This song has been used on Glee and several commericals including the M & M’s Super Bowl commercial.

Finally we have the electronic music performance from the Grammys this year.  Packed into seven minutes is David Guetta, Skrillex, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, Foo Fighters and deadmau5.
