Music videos are an interesting medium, don’t you think? They exist solely to be visual representations of an art form that is strictly auditory… So if there was no such thing as music, would music videos exist?
I guess that’s the question the folks behind the YouTube Channel House of Halo asked before they started making this genius video series: Music videos without the music. I’m sure you’ve wondered what musicians are listening to when they record these videos, right? They’ve gotta be listening to a backing track or recording of the song to make sure they get the timing correct, right?
Well if these videos are to be believed, you might be surprised by what they’re listening to (or NOT listening to, for that matter).
So there’s a bunch of your favourites… There’s even some classics from movies and TV shows too… Like this take on Greased Lightning!
And how about the intro to Friends?
Or That 70’s Show, for that matter?
Plenty more where those came from – just check out House of Halo’s YouTube Channel!
