Music Video Friday: Moby – In This World

This week’s video for Music Video Friday is Moby’s In This World.

Is it cool to like Moby? Was it ever cool to like Moby? I don’t know (or care). He has a lot of fantastic songs. I especially love Porcelain & South Side with Gwen Stefani and, of course, the absolutely brilliant God Moving Over The Face Of The Waters from the end of the movie Heat (I can’t imagine any movie blogger not loving that).

In This World is from Moby’s 2002 album 18. It’s a great song but even greater video. This video couldn’t be more “me”. I must have had the biggest smile on my face the first time I saw these adorable little aliens just trying to be noticed on this crazy planet called Earth. I wanted to shout “Hi!” and give them all a big hug.

I suppose this video has a great message about how our lives are so hectic that we so easily miss all the special, little things in life (wasn’t that also the message in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off?!). Well, message or not, I just love these little alien dudes. If I ever get around to doing a list of My Top Ten Music Videos, I can’t imagine this not being in the list. 🙂

  1. That really is a great video. I’ve always liked Moby, never bought his stuff but whenever I hear his songs I like them. I remember this song but I hadn’t seen the video. You’re right, I think the video is some sort of message. Either way, its a moving video I reckon. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. I wanna say I love it, but it’s so sad as well 😦 I love hearing your recommendations because it’s always some music/group I’ve never heard before. Aww man, I feel for the little guys. But great music video as always, you got me hooked on vids like this and the blur video. Have a great week :))

  3. Hi, I’m writing about every song that ever became a #1 hit, backwards chronologically, in the journey that is the Every Number One blog. I would really appreciate if you took a look around.

    • Thanks! Wow – there seem to be a lot of Moby fans. I hadn’t listened to him in a while but listened to a bunch again when I posted this video. He has so many good songs. : )
