Hello, everybody!


Are you bored at the moment? Need some inspiration or just a kick for your mood? Here are my top favourite music videos that might cheer you up (at least the best ones I’ve found so far). Take your time and enjoy!

(This list is certainly not complete! I’d also like to know which music videos YOU like most. :) )


Have a ball with Stray Cats, my top favourite band ever after the Beatles: Just a lot of great music and coolness!

Rock This Town:…

Stray Cat Strut:…

(She’s) Sexy + 17:…


Kate Bush, one of the greatest female musicians and songwriters ever, has created many music videos of her genius songs that just burst with ideas and spirit.

Cloudbusting – An enchanting, but also dramatic story about an inventor (Donald Sutherland) and his young son (Kate Bush!):…

Experiment IV – The power of music, being abused for evil purposes – what a story! (Look closely at the young scientist. You might recognize this British actor who starred one of the most successful TV dramas):…

This Woman’s Work – “Ooh it’s hard on the man, now his part is over”… always brings a tear to my eye:…


Another musical icon who knows about the power of visual media Peter Gabriel:

I Don’t Remember – Surreal and a bit crazy. You don’t have to understand it – it’s just art to enjoy:…

Digging In The Dirt – Same as above, with a lot of cool stop motion animations:…

Sledgehammer – This legendary video shows what’s possible with stop motion techniques. It was a rather painful experience for Gabriel:…

After Peter Gabriel left Genesis, the band didn’t fall apart but became really big with Phil Collins doing the lead vocals. Their music videos are a must for everybody who loves music, movies, videos and storytelling!

Jesus He Knows Me – Wonderfully critical towards religious fanatics, with great acting and hilarious scenes that suit the song lyrics perfectly. One of the greatest videos ever!!…

Land of Confusion – This video should be mentioned in all history books!…

I Can’t Dance – Gotta love it. Period.…

That’s All – Genesis in rags, with great lightning and atmosphere:…

Illegal Alien – It’s certainly no fun being an illegal alien – but this video is!…

Mama – Very intense, with a great scenery and change of the colour scheme:…


Skip to 4:54 to watch the great video of Paul McCartney’s orchestral version of Eleanor Rigby, from the movie “Give My Regards To Broad Street”. This is a rather long one, like a movie within the movie, but really worth the time. Watch out, Ringo, Linda and Barbara!! Oh noooo……


I grew up loving the music of the Australian band Men At Work. This video can certainly be called a fun music video classic:

Down Under:…


Elvis Presley with Jailhouse Rock (1957) – a fantastic choreography long before Michael Jackson entered the stage:…


And here’s one of my personal favourites. It looks minimalistic, but it has exact timing and nothing that distracts the viewer from the intensity of the song and what it has to say.

Peter Gabriel & Kate Bush - Don’t Give Up…



Phew, that’ll be all for now. Hope you liked them, too! :)

Knowledge follows the will to change...

Hi! I'm Rieke, a traditional artist from Germany who grew up drawing comics and cartoons, animals and nature and simply loves to draw and paint. I’m mainly self-taught, but learned how to use acrylic paints at a College of Further Education.

Shark Week painting WIP by rieke-b The Wisdom of the Grizzly King by rieke-b Phoebe Followed the Sun by rieke-b Splashing and Birdsong - for sale by rieke-b Little Princess Sonja 4, Piggies by rieke-b Leni and Tony by rieke-b

I'm one half of a creative team of sisters who work together closely, so I'm glad to have a spare brain, pair of eyes and hands roaming the house. :D
My older sis, Jelka :iconjerseydays: , creates gorgeous one-of-a-kind art dolls and I'm happy and proud when I can paint their faces and body parts.

The Pegasus Dragon - posable art doll - 3 by Jerseydays Eleytheria - art doll - close up by Jerseydays Puck in the pine tree by Jerseydays Tengu Yoru- preview by Jerseydays Waterdragon Ryu - posable art doll by Jerseydays Border Collie dog dragon serpent posable art doll by Jerseydays Balthazar King of the Skies - posable art doll by Jerseydays Jaeger the Secretary - ooak posable art doll by Jerseydays The Bear - posable art doll - handmade by Jerseydays

Jelka is also a great author and comic artist and helped me to improve most of the artworks you can see in my gallery.
My family and pets, telling stories, humour, learning about animals and the search for chemical-free insight keep me together. :D

I can't tell you about all my projects and ideas because I prefer to show finished works than talking too much. My art tells a lot about me and my personality, anyway. ;)

Interests: caring for my pets (dog & cat), music, learning about nature and animals, yummy organic vegan food
Favourite musicians: The Beatles, Paul McCartney, Kate Bush, Stray Cats, The Brian Setzer Orchestra, Peter Gabriel, Rory Gallagher, Sting, Mari Boine, Sonny Landreth, The Rutles, Tori Amos
Favourite authors: Terry Pratchett, Cesar Millan, Scott McCloud
Favourite artists: Don Rosa, Mort Drucker, Tome & Janry, Rien Poortvliet, Paul Kidby, André Franquin
Favourite words: Brot (bread), FWOOMP, Phalacrocorax carbo (Great Cormorant), Pi-pa-po, GLOOING :D
