Hey, it's Josh Franceschi's birthday! To celebrate the anniversary of the You Me At Six man's birth we thought it only right to take a look back over the band's music video legacy and see how things have changed. Here we go.
SAVE IT FOR THE BEDROOM
This is where it all started. The beginning of the journey, and what a place to kick off. The haircuts. The energy. The song. It has it all.
JEALOUS MINDS THINK ALIKE
Aside from having some of the best harmonies ever commited to record, this track's video is also one of the most awe-inspiring clips a British band has ever produced. Is there anything better than watching a sunset with your best mates while stood on a heavy duty shipping container? If there is we don't want to know about it.
SAVE IT FOR THE BEDROOM V.2
As the popularity of the band rose, they felt this song deserved a proper video to please the masses. What we got a Jeremy Kyle style rip featuring necrophiliacs, dog lovers and plenty of jumping through walls. Good, clean family fun.
IF I WERE IN YOUR SHOES
Simple but effective, the band give it some in a big white room and the rewards for their efforts are endless.
Infamous yet infectious, the most requested You Me song ever got the house part treatment for its video. Plenty of naughty things going on and a good time had by all. We hope they let the neighbours know beforehand though.
Fun fact: 25kg of duck feathers were used in the making of this video. We think. Anyway, watching a relationship break down before our eyes has never been this catchy.
KISS AND TELL
More party antics going on here. This time there's a bloke dressed as a hot dog, silly string and a motorbike in a kitchen. Oi lads, why were we never invited to any of these? We're cool!
The red light. The blinding strobes. That drum beat. The gorgeous dancing. It doesn't get much more iconic than this.
Doesn't Josh look distracted here? We wonder who is on his mind? Or is he just thinking of that massive Nando's he is going to smash later? We will never truly know.
STAY WITH ME
A beautifully sentimental clip that sticks in the mind long after it had ended.
Like Rocky but for the Forever The Sickest Kids generation. We love collabs that you just never saw coming, this being a prime example. We hope you're doing ok wherever you are Chiddy Bang.
There's a intensity to this video that hadn't been seen in You Me's output before. The gritty nature of the interrogation matches the band's new found maturity that oozes out of every pour of this song.
BITE MY TONGUE
Hi Oli Sykes, how are you today?
NO ONE DOES IT BETTER
Dipping into the cinematic and dramatic and coming out the other side smelling of roses. Another huge step up in the You Me story.
An insight into the mayhem of a [email protected] show and just how much fun life on the road with them is. Let us in the van lads.
LIVED A LIE
You never know what you're going to find when you walk round an industrial estate at night. In this case our mans find some bits of technology on fire. Be careful out there.
FRESH START FEVER
The story of one man and his quest for dirt bike glory. There's love, loss, betrayal and plenty of hot sport action.
There are few things as liberating as walking around London at night. A real mind clearer. The band make it look even more beautiful here.
Like a brit-rock kaleidescope that you can't take your eyes off. Guaranteed to make you a little dizzy in the best possible way.
A live video that's not actually a live video. The stillness of the rest of the venue mixed in with the intensity of the band's performance is something very special indeed.
And here's what the same venue looks like full! What a clever bunch.
SYNCHRONISED. DANCE. ROUTINE. The latest, and in many ways greatest, video from the band is an all too real look into the person we all turn into in the early hours of Saturday morning.
