Do you enjoy seeing a song you like done to many different AMVs?

Post by x_rex30 » Sun Aug 25, 2019 2:35 am

I like knowing I have multiple AMVs to just a single song.. cause well.. I don't want to play the same amv in my head to the song I like. Also just in general I like it. I think in my current hard drive collection, which is relatively small, has individual songs having 5 or more AMVs for the individual song. Sometimes REmiXes of a song. I like that a lot too!!! :up:

Anyone here has that taste of seeing the same song used in multiple ways in a AMV?

I'm going to say no, purely for selfish reasons.

When it comes to any song that I really like, generally speaking, I don't want to see it turned into a meme (unless, of course, it already was before I even heard it, which happens more and more often these days).

I don't want to see a song that I love poorly featured in an AMV. Most AMVs... are not very good. And the more AMVs are made with a given song, generally speaking, the more of them are going to fail and inevitably affect my perception of how good they actually are, what worth they actually hold in society, etc.

I'm not doing a good job of explaining my feelings here at all, but this is a really interesting topic and you deserve replies for making it.

There are plenty of exceptions to this, and while it's not the subject of your OP, there have been many cases where multiple AMVs made to a song that I actually don't like actually works towards changing my feelings and ultimately winning me over to actually liking the song that I initially didn't have quite so many positive feelings towards.

I'm probably contradicting myself in some way here, IDK.

Not usually, I don't like to associate the same song to multiple things. I get burned out on music pretty quickly, so watching multiple videos with the same song will typically dilute my enjoyment of both videos. Plus, in these situations I always find myself coming away with a favorite, so if I have a craving to watch a video to that song, I'll always go with the one I like more, and the other one (which still may be good!) ends up rarely or never getting any more views from me.

For me, one video that I like will typically become the "definitive" video for the song, in my mind. Its difficult for me to accept 2 videos for the same song.

yeah, Unless the 2 videos interpret the song in completely different ways, I tend to do the same

I don't mind, but each combination of song and series will invariably have one definitive video - if that - and a bunch of failures. Therefore, while I can watch and like many videos with Linkin Park's "Numb", for example, there will only be one Star Wars music video with Linkin Park's "Numb"
