What's on your playlist? Part 2

Yesterday I shared 7 animal-centric videos that got me hooked on some new tunes. Today, I'll finish up the list with my top six videos/songs.

I've tried to embed the videos in a way that should work for most browsers but if you have trouble viewing them here, you can click on the title of the song and it will open the video up in it's original location. I hope you'll find them worth the effort.

  1. John Shipe Pit Bull Blues

    Great video for pit bull advocacy. With a special appearance by the lovely departed Wallace the Pit Bull. RIP, sweet angel.

  2. Buy on: iTunes | Amazon

  3. King Creosote & Jon Hopkins Bubble

    I'm not sure what this video is supposed to mean but there is something oddly playful, heart-breaking, grounding and reminiscent about it.

  4. Buy on: Google Play | iTunes | Amazon

  5. Michael Holborn Let's Rise and Shine

    Excellent use of a song by the HSUS. Now that's how you promote shelter adoptions. Tell me this one doesn't get you smiling along.

  6. The song is available for free download online from any number of sites. Take your pick but, as always, scan the source before downloading.

  7. Will Young Come On

    This video is for the under-dogs among us. Our lineage may be lacking but our hearts are open and full.

  8. Buy on: Amazon

  9. Patrick Stump Spotlight

    In short: Whatever you do that makes you you, do it with passion, enthusiasm and to the very best of your ability. And never, ever let anyone tell you you can't.

  10. Buy on: Google Play | iTunes | Amazon

    (And here's the story behind the tripawd dog in the video.)

  11. American Authors Best Day of My Life

    My absolute favorite video right now. Fun with a goose-bump-inducing twist at the end.

  12. Buy on: Google Play | iTunes | Amazon

So, how'd I do? Did I hit on any of your favorites? Have one I missed? I'm always open to new music so let me know in the comments if you have any recommendations. Thanks!

    We are still watching!

  2. LOL - yeah, I know, it's a lot to sit through. But I really didn't want to leave any of them out.

  3. Yeah, I actually like one of those but figure it's been done to death.

  4. Outstanding! Laughter, tears, capitivating, joyful, magical - I could go on and on. Thank you!

  5. I'll be honest, I haven't had time to look at them yet but I know the Pit Bull Blues video well and love it. Once I've gotten round all the blogs I'll come back and check the others out :) My favourites are the ones I do for our GAP Youtube channel ;)

  6. I missed both of these posts somehow last time I stopped by your blog, but I saw the Best Day of My Life video when you shared it on facebook. Funny thing is, I heard it playing just a few days later, (I think when I was walking through Kohls....?), but wherever it was, I kept thinking of that cute video with the bulldog and it made me smile. So thanks for that!
