Ever wish songs actually sang about what was happening in the music video? Well now they do! Literal music videos are real music videos where lyrics are changed to describe the video. I know, this is tricky but when it is well-done, it is really funny.
So above, you can see one that is not so funny but Jingle Rocks is « of season ». What’s wrong with it is we do not know the original video in the first place and after watching it, we already think this video was funny in itself, there was no point in changing the lyrics.
No, my favourite video is certainly Take on Me by A-Ha. This is the first one I’ve watched, and each time since, it makes me smile.
Total eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler. Absolutely amazing and gorgeous.
Head over Hells by Tears for Fears

Désolé, mais je n’ai pas trouvé de bons clips en version littéral en français. Il y a un créneau à prendre. Par contre si vous en connaissez, faites-vous plaisir, et n’hésitez pas à laisser les liens en commentaire. Pour info, le maitre des versions littérales s’appelle : DAScottjr
