"I know we've only known each other four weeks and three days, but to me it seems like nine weeks and five days. The first day seemed like a week and the second day seemed like five days. And the third day seemed like a week again and the fourth day seemed like eight days. And the fifth day you went to see your mother and that seemed just like a day, and then you came back and later on the sixth day, in the evening, when we saw each other, that started seeming like two days, so in the evening it seemed like two days spilling over into the next day and that started seeming like four days, so at the end of the sixth day on into the seventh day, it seemed like a total of five days. And the sixth day seemed like a week and a half. I have it written down, but I can show it to you tomorrow if you want to see it."

With that in mind, here's five music videos you'd be a jerk to miss out on:



5. SVÉ - 'Riot' (dir. Mel Soria)

Here's what SVÉ had to say about her new video:

"Well... I had always pictured dancing in this song. And having any form of "rioting" in the video was not an option. I reached out to a few people who I wanted to direct and things just weren't lining up. Whether it was concepts / scheduling / budget etc. There was a point where I sat in my kitchen crying because I had been rehearsing this dance for months and I didn't think I would get to make the video.

There was one week left before my dancers were going to be leaving NY for the summer. I reached out to one more set of people, my friends Kristen and Brendan (quite the dynamic duo). In the end friendships alway prevails over networking connections. They introduced me to Mel Soria (the director) who rallied an incredible crew. Kyle who produced the track also indirectly took on the role of being the video producer since I was falling apart every 30 minutes thinking how to make happen. We discovered Be Electric studio in Bushwick and just did it. My choreographer, Alyssa Vacco, called in three of her students to freestyle the day of the shoot (the two ballerinas and break dancer).

When those kids started dancing I completely lost it (waterfalls down my face) at the shoot. It's been a dream of mine to see people dance to one of my songs. I was overwhelmed. It was truly an incredible and stressful experience, but we managed to finish early in time for Game of Thrones.

The journey was not over... then the video was shipped to LA where it was edited by a wizard named Pete Martich. This guy lost the most sleep and made all the effects and glittery magic happen as well.

In the end I wanted a video where I danced, people danced, and it had some sparkle nonsense. I am beyond grateful for everyone who came in to work on this video. It is one of those moments where you believe something greater is at work."



4. Mozart's Sister - 'Good Thing, Bad Thing' (dir. Eva and Martin)

It's somewhat of a joy to see the home life of most musicians. Maybe the collective populous is inundated by the furiously large estates by the industry's bigger stars, but most artists manage to have somewhat humble living spaces. Case and point, relative-unknown Mozart's Sister in her new video 'Good Thing, Bad Thing'. In the video, directed by duo Eva and Martin, Mozart's Sister (aka Caila Thompson-Hannant) plays multiple versions of herself in what may be her smallish, humble apartment. I didn't even see a TV in there! - Matt Korman



3. Clipping. - 'Inside Out' (dir. Carlos Lopez Estrada)

A headless man walking around LA? Only Carlos Lopez Estrada could make such a concept fun. Watch the video and let us know what object/pet/vegetable like to have your head replaced with.



2. Peaking Lights - 'Breakdown' (dir. )

If you've ever felt like your phone is controlling your life, the protagonist in the new video from Peaking Lights feels you. It's an amusing take on a Los Angeles resident who is literally controlled by her smartphone (albeit it's a life sized one), and it's pretty hilarious, and telling. - Tarynn Law



1. BEA - 'We're Like the Hard Born' (dir. Piet Langeveld)

The new video from Amsterdam's BEA goes along quite well for a while, as she looks into the camera with a piercing glare, a cool take on a selfie, and then out of nowhere a sleepy looking animated dog shows up to belt the chorus. It's all the more ethereal as it takes place in a calming steam room that seemingly goes on forever, looking incredibly futuristic - like if IKEA were to create a steam room. - Tarynn Law
