Michael Jackson - They Don't Care About Us (The Music Videos by Spike Lee)

Music-Television music videos for Michael Jackson's song They Don't Care About Us, directed by Spike Lee

Music Television is proud to present two different music video versions, known as the Prison Version and the Brazil Version, of Michael Jackson's song titled They Don't Care About Us. Both versions were directed by Spike Lee.

The first video featured below, the Prison Version, is most prophetic for American people today. When it was released in 1996, it was considered too controversial and politically incorrect at the time. The song and the video was kept off of most television and radio networks in the U.S. and Brazil. However, it is amazing how these videos are as relevant today, if not more, than when they were made.

This next version below, known as the Brazil Version, was also brushed aside by the establishment, for it gave poor Brazilian people voice, and at the time, it pathetically wasn't very diplomatic for the U.S. media establishment to embrace it.

Music-Television music video by Bishop Briggs for her song titled Dreams. Directed by Dano Cerny

Bishop Briggs is a English recording artist from London presently residing in Los Angeles. She is a major label act on the legendary imprint, Island Records,  by way of an exclusive license through Teleport Records.

Music Television is pleased to present one more music video by Bishop Briggs for her song titled Dream. It was directed Dano Cerny.

Drake - God's Plan (Music Video)

Music-Television music video to Drake song titled God's Plan

This music video below is by Drake for the song titled God's Plan.

Two people come to mind when you watch this video. Ed McMahon, who, once upon a time, would show up at your door with a stack of cash, and the beyond generous Oprah. It's refreshing to see any artist as influential as Drake spreading wealth instead of just flaunting it. Enjoy!

Yeah they wishin' and wishin' and wishin' and wishin'

I been movin' calm, don't start no trouble with me
Tryna keep it peaceful is a struggle for me
Don’t pull up at 6 AM to cuddle with me
You know how I like it when you lovin' on me
I don’t wanna die for them to miss me
Yes I see the things that they wishin' on me
Hope I got some brothers that outlive me
They gon' tell the story, shit was different with me
God's plan, God's plan
I hold back, sometimes I won't, yuh
I feel good, sometimes I don't, ay, don't
I finessed down Weston Road, ay, 'nessed
Might go down a G.O.D., yeah, wait

She say, "Do you love me?" I tell her, "Only partly"
I only love my bed and my momma, I'm sorry
Fifty dub, I even got it tatted on me
81, they'll bring the crashers to the party
And you know me
Turn the O2 into the O3, dog
Without 40, Oli', there would be no me
Imagine if I never met the broskies
God's plan, God's plan
I can't do this on my own, ay, no, ay
Someone watchin' this shit close, yep, close
I've been me since Scarlett Road, ay, road, ay
Might go down as G.O.D., yeah, wait

Lyrics to Kimbra song titled Human
I know what I know what I know what I know what I know
not many things I know but I know what I know and I’ll grow

there was a time when I was low so low so low
but that’s the time when I had to show

I got a heart that’s primal
cause I need your love for my survival
life’s got me on trial
I confess I’ve been messed up
in denial

because this is what means to be human
I don’t know much but I know this much is true
this is what means to be human
I don’t know much but i know that I hurt as much as you

I go where I go where I go where I go where I go
I’m a foreigner everywhere I roam

but I see in you what I see in myself
it’s written in the marrow of my bones

I got a heart that’s primal cos i need your love for my survival
life’s got me on trial (there’s nowhere else I’d rather be)
I confess I’ve been messed up in denial (till the bright lights come for me)

because this is what means to be human
I don’t know much but I know this much is true
this is what means to be human I don’t know much but I know that I hurt as much as you

I got a heart that’s primal
this is what means to be human
I don’t know much but I know this much is true
this is what means to be human
I don’t know much but I know that I hurt as much as you

Neil Young + Promise Of The Real - Almost Always and Already Great (Music Videos)

Music Television presents Neil Young + Promise Of The Real and the music video for their song titled Almost Always, direct by directed by Daryl Hannah

Music Television presents Neil Young in a way not everyone is yet familir, making records under the banner: Neil Young + Promise Of The Real.

For those who do not yet know, in 2015, Neil teamed up with Lukas Nelson, who happens to be the son of Willie Nelson, to make a record together called The Monsanto Years, with a band Lukas formed in 2008 called Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real. Members are Lukas Nelson, Anthony Logerfo, Tato Melgar, Corey McCormick and Jesse Grey Siebenberg.

When Neil Young is with the band, they simply call the project Neil Young + Promise Of The Real.

Music Television is proud to present two music videos, featured below, from their second album titled The Visitor which was released on December 1, 2017.

The first video below is titled "Almost Always". It is track #3 from The Visitor and the second music video associated with the album, so far. The music video was directed by Neil Youngs girlfriend, Daryl Hannah. It was produced by Gary Ward. Enjoy!

Neil Young + Promise Of The Real - Almost Always

Just below is the first fist track from, and the first music video made for The Visitor album. It's titled Already Great. In true Neil Young style, he takes a poke at the U.S. presidential campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again".

Music-Television music videos by Elise Trouw, Songs titled Unraveling and Burn, Photo by TheJoelsons.Com

Music Television is proud to present two cinematic music videos by Elise Trouw, a multifaceted up and coming 18 year old recording artist.

Her main instrument is drums, however, she is a solid multi-instrumentalist who sings, arranges and writes her own songs.

She is also a great master of looping. She recently released what has become a viral music video, (featured on our network at The Quiet Storm), where she mashes up the Foo Fighters song titled Everlong with The Quiet Storm classic by Bobby Caldwell titled What You Won't Do For Love. That perfectly shot video of her well done performance may be what landed her debut network TV appearance/performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on January 30, 2018.

The first video below is titled Unraveling, which is the title track to her recent independently released debut album.

The next music video below is to the Elise Trouw song titled Burn, which is track #4 on her debut album titled Unraveling.

Lyrics by Elise Trouw for Unraveling
This time you say we need to talk I know my lines
You splash some water in your eyes pretend to cry
And all the secrets we have kept will now be shared
Maybe the damage we inflict will make it fair

The seams we watch unraveling
We both pretend not to see
This seems to be unraveling
But we both pretend not to see how the stitches come out

Despite the fun we may have had I know it's no use
To sacrifice my days for someone like you
And though the time I've wasted, I do regret
My life keeps on going like the dreams we just forget

The seams we watch unraveling
We both pretend not to see
This seems to be unraveling
But we both pretend not to see how the stitches come out

The seams we watch unraveling
We both pretend not to see
This seems to be unraveling
But we both pretend not to see how the stitches come out

Lyrics by Elise Trouw for Burn
Come on in and listen close
I will tell you how this goes
Light a match and watch it glow
But when it hurts just let it go

Funny how we meet again
Talking small is just for show
So I will ask you where you've been
I don't really care though

'Cause I knew in time
You would return
'Cause I felt the crash
But you're feeling the burn
And I know it's time
I know it's time
That you feel the burn
That you feel the burn

Come on in and listen close
You f***ed up and let me go
"Sorry", but that's just a word
Apologies will not be heard

Say you want to take me back
Never thinking 'bout the fact
That I'm already moving on
So now it's my turn to be gone

'Cause I knew in time
You would return
'Cause I felt the crash
But you're feeling the burn
And I know it's time
I know it's time
That you feel the burn
That you feel the burn

(oohs)

'Cause I knew in time
You would return
'Cause I felt the crash
But you're feeling the burn
And I know it's time
I know it's time
That you feel the burn
That you feel the burn
