Welcome to my third annual Lyrics Video Survivor! In 2015 The Rolling Stones - Wild Horses was crowned the winner, and then in 2016 Duran Duran - Pressure Off (feat. Janelle Monáe) took the crown... so who will join them? This is 2017 edition although it will definetly end in 2018 :lol: It takes forever to advance the Theme Lists :lol: !!!!

As long as it is IMPOSSIBLE to define how people must vote, the idea is to do it mainly based on visuals, with influence on lyrics and music as the video in a way matches these three factors.

Add 4 noms to the list, nominations close once we reach 40 entries. I'll fill the empty slots before starting Round 1.

Just make sure:
- the video has not taken part of season 1 or season 2,
- provide the link!
- only 1 entry by artist (2 are fine if in one it is lead and in the second featuring)
- it can be unofficial, but take into account visuals is part of the voting criteria!

1. Ed Sheeran - Castle On The Hill
2. Imagine Dragons - Whatever It Takes
3. Lady Gaga - Applause
4. Katy Perry feat. Skip Marley - Chained To The Rhythm

13. Niall Horan - Slow Hands
14. Dua Lipa - New Rules
15. Taylor Swift - Look What You Made Me Do
16. Liam Payne - Bedroom Floor

Was going to nominate the polarizing wtf-ness of the The Cure's lyric video, but you already had Applause so maybe in the next survivor. :P

6 Princess Chelsea - Aftertouch - 90s karaoke AESTHETHIC
5 Takagi & Ketra - L'Esercito Del Selfie (Featuring Lorenzo Fragola & Arisa) - dynamic music video with lyrics as a bonus
4 Cheeze - Be There - all-smiles and twee, manages to keep the mood of the song
3 Taylor Swift - Look What You Made Me Do - it's okay, but not doing much for me, no real storyline
2 Tori Amos - Up The Creek - l like the song, but this is surprisingly amateur-ish in terms of a lyric video, just images and lyrics
1 Unit 406 - Tanghaling Tapat - cute, but too simplistic

6 Takagi & Ketra - L'Esercito Del Selfie (Featuring Lorenzo Fragola & Arisa) (More Karaoke than anything; but very tongue-in-cheek)
5 Princess Chelsea - Aftertouch (Like the song; gets extra points for getting the most out of its budget)
4 Tori Amos - Up The Creek (Love this song very much; very lazy execution, though)
3 Cheeze - Be There (Great vibe and pretty visuals)
2 Taylor Swift - Look What You Made Me Do (It's good but then again from an artist of her calibre the video doesn't live up to the expectations)
1 Unit 406 - Tanghaling Tapat (Cute; looks like a Pokémon just barfed on a canvas)
