A Collection of Feel Good Valentines Day Videos
I thought I'd share a collection of feel good Valentines Day Videos. Whether you are single, have a long-time partner, or perhaps a new love interest in your life, these should tug at your heartstrings and make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
First up is a fairly recent video that is by far my favourite. It's the Oscar-nominated Paperman.
Paperman - Full Animated Short Film
Here’s a little bit about Paperman off YouTube:
“Using a minimalist black-and-white style, this animated love story follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him.”
Next up is Matt Harding's 2012 Dance video, which I like to call "Dancing for Humanity".
Where the Hell is Matt? 2012
Here's Matt's message off YouTube:
"This video was made without a sponsor. You don't have to buy anything. Just remember we need to take care of each other."
And of course you can't beat Isaac's Live Lip-Dub Proposal. Or can you?
Valentines Day Videos: Isaac's Live Lip-Dub Proposal
Here's what Isaac Lamb had to say:
"On Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012, I told my girlfriend to meet me at my parent's house for dinner. When she arrived I had stationed my brother to sit her in the back of an open Honda CRV and give her some headphones. He wanted to play her a song..."
This next one is one of my favouite songs by one of my favourite bands. It's Fairytale of New York by Sarah Blackwood and Gianni Luminati of Walk Off The Earth fame.
Fairytale of New York - Gianni and Sarah (Walk off the Earth)
A little bit about the band:
"Walk off the Earth is a Canadian indie band formed in 2006 in Burlington, Ontario. They have gained success around the world by making low-budget music videos of covers and originals. The band built their fan base independently with no help from record labels, booking agents or management" - Wikipedia
This one is a world favourite. There is no doubt that dogs share human emotions. It's "Denver the guilt dog".

"Someone helped themselves to the kitty Cat treats while I was out!! Let's see who is Guilty! and cracks under pressure!"
Who wouldn't be moved by a rendition of "Stand by Me"? Especially when it has been created as a song from around the world!
Playing For Change: Peace Through Music
Here's a snippet from the makers:
"From the award-winning documentary, "Playing For Change: Peace Through Music", comes the first of many "songs around the world" being released independently. Featured is a cover of the Ben E. King classic by musicians around the world adding their part to the song as it travelled the globe."
I hope you enjoyed my collection of Happy Valentines Day Videos! Any favourites? Or do you perhaps have your own to share?
