Favorite Videos of FAMA and LMF

It’s so hard to find singers who sing in colloquial Cantonese, as opposed to singing in a very formal written-style Cantonese.
I just discovered the bands FAMA and LMF a few weeks ago. I really enjoyed some of their music videos. Here are my favorites.
First from FAMA, I like how they can alternate between formal Cantonese and colloquial cantonese (and even throw in some English):
Also, from LMF I really liked the below song. I especially like the line 「二就自由只有兩個字」. I don’t know why but I really find the “yi6 jau6” , “ji6 yau4” and “ji2 yau5” back-to-back to sound very interesting.
Also, the line 「One 平等。一個Freedom。」. I like how they found a sentence which in half-Chinese/half-English which rhymes with itself (more or less) when the two halves switch languages.
