The Music Theme is Competition—got that? Right. Yeah, I didn’t quite stay totally on the targeted task. Absolutely my bad. If that disqualifies my effort, so be it. I’ll give the next theme another go instead. But I am grateful to Johnny for stimulating my blogging –even if the cake isn’t quite what was expected. So how did this selection come about? Easy, I was fishing for animated videos about competing and had an unscheduled brainstorm–ooops–yes, those are like thunderstorms the weather channel never mentioned. Anyway. These videos all have music and they’re all going to compete for you. Which one do YOU like the best? I gave them all common ground of being about killers in one form or another. And, aside from the Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer”, which introduces the sub-theme of killers for the animated works, all entries are from the Mad Artist Publishing channel on the tubes of you. I thought that was a way to narrow down my field of selections and possibly introduce anyone with similar sensibilities to their creative madness. Hence the presence of a link to enable net surfing to more animated delights.
Yes, there are many other animator channels on the tubes–and if you find a wonderful one I demand a link.
If you would like to share a favorite which does not appear here, please do so.
For anyone paying attention, I kept these to a time limit in order to keep down the required listening time–otherwise there’d be OTHERS, many others. I am interested in who likes what. This is supposed to be a competition so comment accordingly. Or not. 🙂 No pressure. No stress. Just killer animations.
Talking Heads ~ Psycho Killer
This is a Music Video I created as my Final project for my Typography III Class.

The lyrics were inspired by the character Norman Bates in the movie Psycho so I designed this with Saul Bass in mind since he was the graphic designer that created much of Alfred Hitchcocks Movie Posters.
