River Matthews is no stranger to music, having performed cover songs in local pubs in his youth and choosing a career in musical therapy.
Most recently he has been working with Jamie Scott and supported Rag’n’Bone Man on his tour. Matthews’ latest EP, Sunshine is out now and already receiving critical acclaim.
River Matthews was kind enough to share his favourite 90s music videos and you can find out what they are below.
10. Björk – All is Full of Love
Ahhh this tune is just INCREDIBLE! She’s a genius, and this beautiful video belongs with the song.
9. Sinéad O’Connor – Nothing Compares to you
Timeless song and video… simply beautiful.
8. Jamiroquai – Virtual Insanity
Cool as fuck! Still!
7. Oasis – Whatever
Epic tune. Hero’s of youth. And definitely maybe my favourite video of theirs. Yeah, whatever.
6. Natalie Imbruglia – Torn
Such a great tune! But I probably chose the video because you get to watch Natalie Imbruglia for 4 minutes.
5. Pulp – Common People
Jarvis might have been cooler than most people around at that time, but you don’t realise till 20 years later. Even if he isn’t, the song’s he wrote were pretty amazing, and this vid is spot on Jarvis!
4. Deee-Lite – Groove Is In The Heart
It’s fun and a little bit stupid! Fake Fur!
3. Vanilla Ice – Ice Ice Baby
The song would have been nothing without the dance. So you need the video! Boom!
2. Daft Punk – Around The World
Couldn’t find the video on Daft Punk’s page for this banger, but I’m pretty sure this was it! So cool!
(the video is by French director Michel Gondry)
1. Weezer – Buddy Holly
Happy Days Man!
