i'll take my music videos with a dose of smarts, thanks

i was just listening to the fray on my ipod at work, and despite the fact that i put it on because of its brainless nature, i found myself getting incensed. because even though i'm not really a huge fan of the fray or snow patrol (i swear), i was a huge fan of the first music videos i saw from each band. but the music industry in it's drive to make more and more money, replaced the awesome, smart versions with less intelligent, less visually stimulating and more annoyingly literal versions. and of course, now whenever i hear "how to save of life" (above) or "chasing cars" (below), it's all i can do not to think of the outrage that has occurred. grrr. these are the dissed original videos. and as with any videos i post, i enjoy them just as much without the sound.
