Ah, yes, yet another week in ink-splattering, psychedelic block-lettering, hashtag-exploding, photograph-joining type and song fun. Nothing though beats a song and dance from Canada’s resident prince of pop croon, Michael Bubléthough. Ever see a dude spell out free drinks with song lyrics in the sky? Said winning situation and so much more in volume the tenth edition of the best lyric vids of the week.

A Million Billion Dying Suns – ‘Journey to the Center of Your Life Pt. II’

Bay-area axeman, Nate Mercerau gets his Galaxie 500 shoegaze on with this freewheelin’ ambivalent zen of a psychedelic punchline. It’s like  “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” for the acid set, with some pretty sweet kaleidoscopic visuals:

Several meanings
Be happy to choose just one of them
And figure it out
And keep it for yourself


Tegan and Sara – ‘Now I’m all Messed Up‘ 

The lesbian twin-sister indie-pop darlings extend the life of their latest record Heartthrob with this ink-lover’s creative gem, exploding with biting turn-of-phrases about a good old-fashioned lovers’ quarrel:

You come back to me always anyway
Leave a mark
You said you never really loved her anyway
Why do I take this lonely road?

Demi Lovato – ‘Heart Attack

Much like the secret key to this pop princess‘ heart, Lovato egged her social legion of teenlings to break the internets with a certain amount of tweets in order to unlock this text bomb of a lyric video. No falling in love though – we don’t want any heart attacks. Girl’s playing y’all like a “ken doll:”

Well I’m putting my defenses up
‘Cause I don’t want to fall in love
If I ever did that
I think I’d have a heart attack

Michael Bublé – ‘It’s a Beautiful Day‘ 

Who does a 90-second preview of a video? That’s not very beautiful day-like. Tease aside, skinny-tied Bublé’s got some brass behind him in this oddly cheery crooner in which breakups and drinks are on him. It’s just a shame his animators make the sentiment look like it was made in the Target laboratories:

If we’re drinking then I’m buying
And I know there’s no denying
It’s a beautiful day

Sharks – ‘Portland’ 

Brit indie-pop crew Sharks pull out all the sentimental tricks in promotion of their fourth effort, Selfhood – photographs, sun-burnt hooks and angular blocks of lyrics that about-face and flip the bird to any sense of self-righteous rock ego. Nice little over-the-pond elbow-jab the may or may not be about the infamous city where everyone’s in the best band in the world and young people go to retire:

You think I must be crazy
Must think that I am obsolete
There is nobody in this van
Who believes we’re where we deserve to be
