Tommy & The High Pilots do the "I Like Someone!" dance in their new "Outta My Head" video.
You know that feeling when you meet somebody special and you don't have to do that whole first-date "So, what do you do?" routine? Like, when everything flows so effortlessly that suddenly over the course of two weeks you realize that you haven't ONCE worried about whether or not they'd text back? Because you knew that they just WOULD? Well, Santa Barbara's power-pop collective Tommy & The High Pilots should know what we're talking about in their colorful new "Outta My Head" video (the latest single off of their upcoming disc, Only Human), which essentially illustrates the universal, euphoric "THEY LIKE ME BACK!!" dance.

Selena Gomez invokes the elements in her brand-new "Come & Get It" video.
Selena Gomez has spent much of 2013 attempting to gracefully reinvent her image from a baby-faced Disney ingenue to a 20-year-old girl gone wild (while still keeping her bikini top on, thankyouverymuch) in "Spring Breakers." All baby faces aside, Selena's more than accomplished her growing up goal, what with news of an upcoming album, her "come hither" single "Come & Get It," a slinky, Bollywood-esque performance of said single at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, and now, a sultry new video for "Come & Get It," which just premiered on "MTV First: Selena Gomez." Girl, you'll be a woman... uh, NOW.

Watch Theophilus London get romantic in his "Rio" video.
Theophilus London's a globe-trotting kinda dude, but the musician didn't have to head too far to film his video for "Rio": To conjure the memory of nights on the beach and too many umbrella-topped cocktails, London brings us a romantic, retro performance set in New York. The story begins in black-and-white, with a lone lady in search of a speakeasy. She finds it in an NYC hotel bar that bursts into color and a back room where London and the five-piece Menahan Street Band offer a vivid serenade.

Daylight dig up scary ghosts of the '90s in their new "Life In A Jar" video.
We like to gently poke fun at all the young bands Remembering the '90s lately, but honestly, they're also providing a useful service for those of us who actually lived through the '90s. We feel like Guy Pearce in "Memento," and each bit of musical nostalgia helps us slowly put back together the hazy decade like pieces of a puzzle. The latest clues come from Doylestown, Pa.'s Daylight, whose grunge-tastic video for "Life In A Jar" feels like it was beamed straight from a vintage episode of "120 Minutes."

Jason Derulo gets hot and heavy with a former friend in his "The Other Side" video.
People always say that it's better to start out as "friends first" when embarking on a brand-new relationship (and to clarify, we mean "friends first" not "friend-zoned first" -- that never works out), mainly because it cuts out that pesky "interview-dating" feeling. Who needs that awkwardness when you already know the person, right?? And even if all new relationships don't necessarily begin that way (because you could also argue that you already "have enough friends"), R&B crooner and dance master Jason Derulo is the living embodiment of what a successful "friends-first" relationship looks like in his new "The Other Side" video.

Kate Nash tries to forget an ex with a retro pool party in her "OMYGOD!" video.
Have you ever had what should be the best day ever -- hanging out with friends, swimming in the ocean, sipping on daiquiris, scoping out cute boys... you know, just a typical summer Saturday. Only you can't enjoy any of it because you just broke up with somebody, or worse, somebody just broke up with YOU. And you know that you shouldn't miss them, but ugh, the more you want to erase them, the more they're all you can think about. And judging by her sad pool party in the new video for "OMYGOD!" (the latest single from Girl Talk), British pop player Kate Nash knows exactly what we're talking about.

Cartel get introspective in their "Uninspired" lyric video.
"I'm a bit overwhelmed. Some may call it uninspired," sings Cartel's Will Pugh in the strident opening bars of "Uninspired," the lead song from their recently released Collider album. "But what is there left to do when someone's so young and admired?" It's just one of the many conflicted questions prompted by the introspective song that will feel particularly familiar to anyone who's been on the roller coaster of ups and downs in the music biz, or just those of us who've watched our favorite bands go through it from afar.

Mac Miller becomes a caped crusader in his new "S.D.S." video.
Is Mac Miller trading his "Most Dope Family" for "The Avengers"? Nah, that would never happen -- not when his family just got renewed for a second season on MTV2! We'd only suggest something like that because in his new video for the Flying Lotus-produced "S.D.S.," which stands for "Somebody Do Something," Mac learns that with great power comes great responsibility -- and some pretty rad perks. Like being able to fly with your adorable bulldog as your sidekick.

Young Statues are cooking up a record collection -- literally.
If you need a bonfire for your next camping trip, there's only one thing to do: Ransack people's apartments and steal their vinyl albums and guitars. Or maybe, uh, buy firewood. The former, however, works out pretty well for Philadelphia's Young Statues, who heat up a chilly night out with old records and a very unlucky turntable in their "Eraser" video from their Age Ain't Ours EP. (WINTER BREAK FOREVER!!!).

The Woodsman's Babe takes us on the road in his"Red Or White" video.
Any metalheads (former or current) in the room? If so, you might recognize Los Angeles native and multi-instrumentalist Joe Lengson as the former bassist of Christian metalcore troupe MyChildren MyBride (I know, riiiight?). You may ALSO recognize Joe as a former mtvU personality (!). OR maybe you've thumbed through Lengson's memoir, "Sleeping In Parking Lots." In short, Lengson's all over the darn place, in trade and in musical genres. Nowadays, the former metal musician/VJ/writer has traded metal riffs for beards and knitted caps in his solo project, The Woodsman's Babe: a pastoral, Fleet Foxes-meets-Bon Iver-sounding project that's just released its latest video for "Red Or White."
