So, it took many hearings of Ellie Goulding’s Lights before I finally noticed the following lyrics;

You show the lights that stop me turn to stone
You shine it when I’m alone
And so I tell myself that I’ll be strong
And dreaming when they’re gone

Which, I interpreted as there being some sort of lights that keep the singer from turning to stone.

Armed with that scant knowledge I looked for a music video which may have some statue fun in it. While there are no scenes of Ms. Goulding turning to stone, there are some scenes of the camera panning around the singer while she is seemingly frozen in mid-action. So that’s neat. Plus, I really love the song;

Lights is awesome, but I know sometimes people just want a little skin. For that, I turn your attention to Nicki Minaj’s video for Starships. Not only is it the sexiest music video I’ve seen for sometime, there are scenes where filters alter the skin color of the dancers, and at one point around the 3/4 mark Ms. Minaj has some extra arms trailing behind her [EDIT: what I was thinking of was a different music video, but there is still an effect at one point where she does look to have a few extra limbs…but it is VERY brief].

Also, I dance like a maniac when this song plays…
