Some artists embrace genre with a passion, and you will see them appear several times here. Violinist and dancer Lindsey Stirling is one of them.

SFF Music Video of the Week - the rules

OK, I figure that before I get too far into this SFF Music Video of the Week thing, I'd better set some ground rules.

A classic song, and a classic SFF theme.

First off the rank is the Sliding Doors inspired 'Have We Met Before', by the now disbanded group 'Chairlift'.
Enjoy!
