Lyric videos have become rather popular over the last couple of years. Instead of spending big dollars on a traditional music video that most people will watch on a tiny screen, artists simply run the lyrics of their song over the audio.
This accomplishes a couple of things: (1) It gives the song a legitimate presence on YouTube and elsewhere; (2) it satiates the need many people have to know the official lyrics, thereby subverting all those lyric sites that often get things wrong.
But running words over audio can be boring. Unless you get creative, of course. Witness this lyric video from the French band, Husbands.
