Forum - General: Music Videos related - TOP 10 VIDEO CLIPS OF ALL TIME!

1. Primus - Wynonna's Big Brown Beaver
2. Pearl Jam - Do The Evolution
3. P-Control - The Clown Song
4. Peter Gabriel - Digging In The Dirt
5. The Prodigy - Smack My Bitch Up
6. Prince - Gett Off
7. George Michael - Spinning The Wheel
8. Metallica - Whiskey In The Jar
9. The Firm - Star Trekkin
10. Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal

Benny Benasi - Satisfaction was a bloody great clip!!

Fedde Le Grand - Put Your Hands Up For Detroit was also a good one even though the clip had nothing to do with the song.

Armand Van Helden - NYC Beat was good and gave a new meaning to apples.

Christina - Dirrty was a raunchy and fun video.

Guns n Roses - November Rain was a long one but had a decent story.

Robbie Williams - Rock DJ was an interesting one even though it makes me a little sick in the stomach when I see it.

Otherwise the ones mentioned above that I know of are good too.

Michael Jackson has had a few good ones too.

Nickelbacks songs often have a great story to them.

OK Go's - Here I Go Again with their routine on the treadmills was cleverly done.

Daniel Powter - Bad Day is one song I remember who's clip follows the lyrics to the song which I thought was great.

Pussycat Dolls - Buttons is a HOT video which I love watching when it comes on too but that's cos the lead singer is drop dead gorgeous in that one.


Videos I hate:

Rappers (most) who have to flaunt themselves dancing with random girls.

Singers who have numerous film clips with them singing at a concert.

songs like Here's Johnny which I don't know how to describe.

Any Frente songs where all you want to do is punch the idiotic singer in the head through the TV as well as the rest of the crappy band with their Wiggles performances.
lol verry funny Jason, I don't get the whole Rap thing either With all there bling! & Ho's!

Frente hey? What bugs you so much about Frente? btw for your information the idiotic singer's name is Angie Harte
I don't understand how they (Frente) were so popular, their songs were brutal!!

What on earth was Accidently Kelly Street goin on about and that went Platnium for God's sake.

Don't get me started on the other rubbish they debuted with, I used to think she was retarded especially when she sings the bit 'da da da day, da da da day...' And then that song ranks #20 of the year in 1992. How on earth did that happen?

Then a few years later she released another song and she was wearing a sleeveless dress and had very bad under arm hair which she revealed when she was swinging her arms around like a spastic!! It was revolting, I don't remember the song but it was a top 10 hit. The film clip was white and red mainly.

No offence to those of you that like Frente but they were pure rubbish and the video clips were even more so!!!!!!!!
No offence taken from my side of the fence, great rant though
Frente had credability. Ordinary Angels is a great pop song. However Accidentley Kelly Street dismantled them and made them look cheesy. Their remake of Bizarre Love Triangle also showed their decline.

Jason, you are hilarious... i was reading your posts and crying with laughter.

Rappers... BLING, CHICKS, CARS, DAHOOD, Y'ALL! Sean Kingston - Take You There performance on So You Think You Can Dance last night was hurrendous toasted black marshmallow came to mind.

Michael Jackson - Thriller.
Madonna - Like A Prayer.
Eiffel 65 - Blue (Da Ba Dee).
Pnau - Wild Strawberries.
Crash Test Dummies - Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm.
Aqua - Barbie Girl.
Aqua - Doctor Jones.
Aqua - Lollipop (Candyman).
Aqua - My Oh My.
Shania Twain - That Don't Impress Me Much.
Korn - Freak On A Leash.
Daft Punk - Around The World.
Brainbug - Nightmare.



i dont know if i could think of a top ten (too hard)
but i have a few faves i thought id get other peoples opinions on
basement jaxx- wheres ur head at
duran duran- girls on film
no doubt- its my life

and currently i find mariah careys touch my body a funny one
Crazy - Gnarls Barkley I liked.
Lol, ben, your saying "Girls on Film" by Duran Duran is one of your favourite video clips reminds me of other controversial videos like "Smack My Bitch Up" by (The) Prodigy, and the ultra-tame, no-nudity (yet controversial) "Justify My Love" by Madonna. Oh, and "Windowlicker" by Aphex Twin. The start of that is hella funny.
Some great videos I never get sick of watching:

* APHEX TWIN - Windowlicker (9 minutes of the most bizarre video you'll ever see)
* MICHAEL JACKSON - Smooth Criminal (11 minutes of crazy moaning, cats on the piano and kids mimicing Michael)
* MADONNA - Die Another Day (it cost Maddy a lot of dosh.. well worth it!)
* THE CURE - Lullaby (bad props and effects but a fabulous video)
* JUNIOR SENIOR - Move Your Feet (crazy animation)
* HERBIE HANCOCK - Rockit (bad 80s props but an amazing concept)
* BJORK - Army Of Me (Bjork is a legend... love the big Gorilla)
* JANET JACKSON - Alright (features a cameo by Cab Calloway)
* DAFT PUNK - Da Funk (the man in the Dog costume rocks!)
* MISSY "MISDEMEANOR" ELLIOTT - Get Ur Freak On (the man who does the crazy splits between 2 walls is nuts!)
* NINE INCH NAILS - Closer (the spinning dead pig still gives me nightmares)
* A-HA - Take On Me (great illustrations...good song to boot!)
* MARILYN MANSON - Beautiful People (this still freaks me out!)
* BENNY BENASSI presents THE BIZ - Satisfaction (construction version - sexy women with powertools)
* METALLICA - One (with movie clips from 'Johnny Got His Gun' - chilling)
* MOBY - Porcelain (the shot of Moby's eye is amazing)

I'm from Australia and I know there's no Aussies listed above.... but can you find a noteworthy Aussie music clip?

maybe ... INXS - What You Need
Hey Tony M!!!
Does Melissa - Read My Lips ring any bells? GREAT CLIP NOT!

Funny how Aussie's don't put much into there videos except for your big players like Kylie,INXS & AC/DC.

Fave Aussie clip would be Kylie Minogue - Put Yourself In My Place. She got me through some lonely nights as a teenager lol
Ok Aussies, let's see (Aussies are actually quite embarrassing when it comes to clips)!!

Nikki Webstar's Strawberry Kisses with the little alien man. Now C'mon that was a great video?

Or how bout Jenny Morris - Break In The Weather with her dancing around with those big statue hands and lips, I failed to understand that clip.

Paulmac - Just The Thing with all the kissing going on was a bit strange.

Ratcat - Don't Go Now brought a whole new meaning to bizzare!!

Silverchair have had some ok clips over the years. I don't remember which songs so maybe not.

AC/DC - Thunderstruck was an interesting one as was Powderfinger - My Happiness with the slinky.

TV Rock - Flaunt It and Youth Group - Forever Young both had decent clips relating to their songs.

And The Veronica's always have fun videos: There was the pool clip, the one they graffiti the car and the one with the croc in it where they have a massive party and it's a big mess at the end of the song. I don't really remember there latest clips (Guess I have Rage to thank for that).

I guess when we have artists like Teen Queens, Girlfriend, Peter Andre, Frente!, Euphoria, Danni Minogue, Melissa, Deni Hines, Joanne/BZ, Madison Avenue, Human Nature, Nikki Webstar, Young Divas (to name a few) with their pathetic dance routines finding a good standout Aussie clip is rare.

I guess if there isn't a good clip, it's a bloody good thing some of our rock artists can sing and have some great songs cos let's face it the Aussie talent of late has been pretty poor, especially with the bullsh*t that is Idol. Nothing memorable has come from that rubbish of a show over the past 5 years. I rest my case when I write Wasabi, what a sh*t song that was.
If Wasabi was shit! And I agree, wtf was with his follow up single Anything For You?
How did the public of Australia allow a face like that to pollute our television screens, nevermind giving him a record deal.
Great album btw, one of the worst produced of alllllll time!
I Thought these aussie video clips were ok...

Killing Heidi - Mascara.
Chris Franklin - Bloke.
The Androids - Do It With Madonna.
Darren Hayes - Pop!ular.
Rogue Traders - Voodoo Child.
Vandalism - Never Say Never.
Potbelleez - Don't Hold Back.
Regurgitator - Polyester Girl.
Pauline Pantsdown - I Don't Like It.
Spiderbait - Calypso.

Also Lee Harding - Wasabi is one of the worst 1 hit wonders of the decade. Along with Rob Mills - Ms. Vanity, Stephanie McIntosh - Mistake & Dean Geyer - If You Don't Mean It. OH OH can't forget Scott Cain - I'm Moving On that was a shocker and anything from Mercury 4, Nikki Webster, Saddle Club (WONDERLAND (VOMIT)). I could just keep going.

nate i completely agree with you
it was lucky for that lee harding that it was the quiet part of the year cos i doubt that that rubbish would have ever made it to #1 in any other case.
Beanster have to have Kylie's put yourself in my place up near the top, it was a sexy video even if i don't swing that way. Come into my world was pretty good. I reckon the others would be
Sledgehammer-Peter Gabriel
Let's get rocked - Def Leppard
November rain - Gun's & Roses
Why does my heart feel so bad - Moby
Hold me, thrill me, Kiss me, Kill me - U2
Oh and i Forgot - Silverchair straight lines and freak
Prodigy-Breathe -the gator under that bed was chilling
I liked the clip to Murder on the Dancefloor by Sophie Ellis Bexta.

Some aussie film clips that were good were Stop Calling Me by Shakaya and Kiss Kiss by Holly Valance.

Hero by Enrique Iglesias was also an ok clip.

Elvis Vs JXL's A Little Less Conversation (the soccer clip) was great but then they replaced it with the boring clip that we are all familar with. Eminem's Without Me was a funny clip. Vanessa Carlton's A Thousand Miles, Linkin Park's In The End, Avril Lavignes Complicated, Tenascious D's Tribute were ok too.

My brother and his mates always used to go on about Christina Milian's When you look at me and Christina Aguilera's Dirrty both being sexy clips.

2002 was a great year in music as all the above songs were from that year.
michael jackson - thriller
fatboy slim - praise you
fatboy slim - right here right now
the presets - my people
and the silverchair one with this mutant pig looking character which had " a grinch" sort of sticking up nose
Here's my top 10 favourite music videos of all time:

1. Lil' Jon and the eastside boyz - Get low (remix)
2. Boogie Pimps - Somebody to love
3. Benny Benassi - Satisfaction
4. TLC - No scrubs
5. Kisschasy - Spray on pants
6. Natalie Imbruglia - Shiver
7. JC Chazez - All day long I dream about sex
8. Loletta Holloway - Love Sensation 06
9. Paulini - Angel Eyes
10. Dido - Life for rent
I'd like to add
Gotye - Hearts A Mess.... Brilliantly stimulating
Silverchair - Miss You Love
Powderfinger - Passenger
Regurgitator - ! Song Formaly Know As
Grinspoon - Repeat
Karnivool - Thamata..... Wicked Clip

Craig
Fi: Holly Vallance - Kiss Kiss was not a 'great' clip...Where was the nudity

-: The silverchair clip was 'Tomorrow' (U.S Version), I personally prefered the boring Aussie clip shot in Newcastle.

Nate: You forgot the popstars i.e Anything from Bardot,Scandal'us,Kayne Taylor & Miranda Murphy.

Craig
I have to say.... THE PRESETS "My People" video is intriguing... and Aussie!

Also, SILVERCHAIR "Freak" and the ROGUE TRADERS Vs. INXS "One Of My Kind" are good too...

Aussie artists DO make okay videos after all!

TONY
Here are some of my favourite clips:

Beck - Sexx Laws
The Cardigans - My Favourite Game
The Chemical Brothers - Setting Sun
Regurgitator - Black Bugs
Blur - Coffee and TV
Supergrass - Pumping on Your Stereo
No Doubt - Sunday Morning
Nelly Furtado - I'm Like a Bird
Ok Go - Here it Goes Again
Daft Punk - Da Funk
Franz Ferdinand - Take Me Out
Pulp - Common People
U2 - Where The Streets Have No Name
U2 - Vertigo
Kylie - Come Into My World
The Chemical Brothers - the Golden Path


Beanster Barnes i didn't forget them i just have so many bad songs.
Bardot however i thought were not too bad.

Holly Valance - Kiss Kiss was crap.

Here's my favourite videos:

1. TATU - All about us
2. TATU - All the things she said
3. TATU - Not gonna get us
4. Janet Jackson - Rhythm nation
5. KT Tunstall - Hold on
6. Janet Jackson - Feedback
7. Thirsty Merc - In the summertime
8. Lily allen - LDN
9. The White Stripes - The Hardest Button to Button
10. Muse - Invincible
I agree. "Kiss Kiss" by Holly Valance was crap, plain and simple. She can't sing very well and the video was just to make it look like she was nude under the lights shining over her breasts and nether regions. "Down Boy" wasn't much better, and then she went and tried to be credible with "Naughty Girl". It just didn't work, as did her lacklustre comeback in 2004 with "State of Mind".
Whoops, it was in 2003 Holly released "State of Mind". But, anyway, she did reach the top 20 with the single, but not even the top 50 with the album (#57).
State of mind is Holly Valance's best song.
Well, it comes down to opinions, I guess.

Anyway, my favourite videos include pretty much all of Michael Jackson's short films/videos, "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough", "Rock With You", "She's Out of My Life" wasn't too great (pretty bland), "Billie Jean", "Beat It", "Say Say Say", "Thriller" (of course), USA for Africa's "We Are the World", "Bad", "The Way You Make Me Feel", plus the three from "Moonwalker" (1988), "Smooth Criminal", "Leave Me Alone" and "Speed Demon", "Dirty Diana", "Man in the Mirror", the live one for "Another Part of Me" is okay, "Black or White", "Remember the Time", "In the Closet", "Who Is It", "Jam", "Heal the World", "Give in to Me", "Will You Be There", "Gone Too Soon", his one with Eddie Murphy, "Whatzupwitu", was, er... strange to say the least, his "HIStory Teaser" was alright (not exactly a music video), "Scream" rocked, "They Don't Care About Us" (both versions were good), "Stranger in Moscow", "Earth Song", "You Are Not Alone", "Childhood (Theme from "Free Willy 2")", "Blood on the Dance Floor" (the Refugee Camp Mix, too), "HIStory (Tony Moran's HIStory Lesson)", "You Rock My World", "Cry", what is available from "One More Chance", and any ones I missed.

"Weird Al" Yankovic's videos are clever and funny too, Nelly Furtado's videos are enjoyable, The Smiths' numerous videos, of course, My Chemical Romance's videos (particularly the three from Three Cheers), Guns N' Roses' videos, some of Kylie Minogue's videos, and there are so many others, some of which I've discovered while watching Rage and Video Hits, and the other numerous newer music video shows. (Eclipse, Video Hits First, The Music Jungle, Hitz Blitz, So Fresh)
Sean, that is a hell a lot of music videos thanks for your input try to only mention your top 10 favourite videos only.
Some very diverse clips so far Keep em coming guys
As I mentioned in the "Top 10 Songs of All Time" thread, I don't like to choose my top 10 and limit what I like and listen to because of it. In my post above, I mentioned those (pretty much all) of Michael Jackson's videos that I like, and those from other artists. I was not trying to compile a top 10 but rather share an opinion. I do believe other people who have posted in this thread have had a longer post, therefore it's rather futile to exercise future control over the topic.
Not a problem in the world Sean, your free to share your opinion as is anyone else who wishes to.
DELTA GOODREM-BELIEVE AGAIN

the 2nd most expensive video made in Australia with over 100 special effects!!

definately one of my favourites of all time.its simply amazing.
Beanster, sorry if I gave you the wrong impression, I was talking to Martin.
I haven't even seen Delta Goodrem's video. The song charted rather poorly even though I agree it's one of her better ones. I'll have to You Tube it.

Also if Delta is #2 on the most expansive Aussie videos made what is #1 (Please don't say a Nikki Webstar song)?

Actually does anyone have a top 10 list of this, would be an interesting read?
A lot of Delta action happening around here lately.....
I too would love to know these facts aswell Rob. And Sean, no probs about that at all, I think we should keep our headmaster caps away from the computer monitor.
The video for "Believe Again" was pretty good, very special-effectsy (lol). I don't think the actual song is better than "In This Life" though. I also like the video for "You Will Only Break My Heart", with all the different Deltas and all her fans singing and dancing. Quite funny.
मैं कहूँगा कि काल कोठरी सूर्य द्वारा आसानी से ध्वनि के सर्वश्रेष्ठ उद्यान है क्योंकि यह वीडियो क्लिप बकाया है और चतुर और शांत है . यह अच्छा है .
Obviously nobody shares my view that Boys (Summertime Love) by Sabrina should have won a grammy for best video??

Seriously though, one of the best videos I have seen is a Massive Attack song where a foetus is floating around inside the womb and then suddenly starts singing along to the lyrics! Freaky stuff!! I think the song was called Teardrop.
yea put it in english please
Here is my Top 10 Best Videos of all Time for me:

1.Christina Aguilera & Redman - Dirrty
2.Britney Spears - Baby One More Time
3.Shakira - Whenever,Wherever
4.Kylie Minogue - Can't get you out of my head
5.Nelly - Hot in Herre
6.Justin Timberlake - Cry Me a River
7.Destinys Child - Bootylicious
8.Britney Spears - Stronger
9.Celine Dion - My Heart Will Go On
10.Steps -Tradegy

And some other favourites videos are:

Los Del Rio - Macarena
Las Ketchup - The Ketchup Song
Holly Valance - Kiss Kiss
Delta Goodrem - Innocent Eyes
Eamon - Fuck It (i don't want you back)
Eminem & Dido - Stan

Christina Aguilera - Fighter
Britney Spears - (You Drive Me) Crazy
Britney Spears - My Prerogative
Ricky Martin - She Bangs
Jennifer Lopez - Love don't cost a thing

No Doubt - Hella Good
Eve & Gwen Stefani - Let me blow ya mind
Gwen Stefani - Cool
Nelly Furtado - Turn off the lights
Nelly Furtado - Say It Right
Fergie - Glamorous

Gwen Stefani - Early Winter
Kelly Clarkson - Because of You
Beyonce - Crazy in Love
Natasha Bedingfield - These Words
Garbage - Why Do You Love Me?
Justin Timberlake - What Goes Around
Christina Aguilera, Pink,Lil,Mya - Lady Marmalade

Hey brandon, you should watch black hole sun by soundgarden its so amazing.
I'm not sure if these are necessarily my 10 favourite clips of all time, but here's 10 I really like (in no particular order):

1. Shakespears Sister - Stay
I love when Siobhan comes down the stairs as the angel of death, and when she rolls her eyes at the end after the man is brought back to life as if to say, "Whatever... you can have him, I'll have him in the end."

2. Eurythmics - Beethoven (I Love To Listen To)
Annie Lennox is brilliant as both the repressed, neurotic housewife, and as the vamp. It must have been so much fun to make the video, getting to basically trash a house in the process.

3. Bjork - Army of Me
Totally crazy, I love the gorilla dentist.

4. Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence
Showing that all you really need is a crown and a deck chair.

5. Kate Bush - Running Up That Hill
Showing you don't have to mouth the words in a video, and you can be sexual without needing to dress like a whore.

6. Kim Wilde - Child Come Away
For its general creepiness.

7. Garbage - Push It
For the crazy imagery (nuns pulling off a robbery, a lightbulb-head man).

8. Fuzzbox - Self!
Gold hotpants 11 years before Kylie, and simulating fellatio with a microphone a year before Madonna tried with a coke bottle. They all wish they could be half as hot as Vicki of Fuzzbox

9. Voice of the Beehive - I Walk the Earth
Love the bright colours.

10. Aphex Twin - Come to Daddy
Evil schoolgirls ahoy!

g'day, everyone seems to be choosing film/video clips from the mtv era. try checking out the ground breaking "promotional film clips" from the 60's eg. bob dylan's "subterrannean homesick blues" , the beatles "strawberry fields forever" , the beach boys " sloop john b" ,the who's "happy jack" etc. etc. the list goes on. some of you might be pleasantly suprised how cool some of these early clips really are.
1 one metallica 3 weeks
honorable mention video killed the radios tar 1 week
Thought I would have a go at mentioning my 5 favorite music videos.
1. Evermore - Running (This video was filmed in 12 countrys in 16 days.)
2. Tenatious D - Tribute (A very funny video to watch.)
3. Coldplay - Yellow (Very few music videos have the camera in 1 place.)
4. Bob Sinclair - Love Generation (The kid riding his bike around the region is one to remember.)
5. James Blunt - Wisemen (Love the special effects with the fire.)

#10 – STEREOPHONICS – DAKOTA (2005)
Dreamlike, no other way to describe it.

#9 – BLINK 182 – DAMMIT (1998)
I usually hate overacting, but this is an exception. Blink take a clichéd ex-girlfriend story and turn it into an ridiculously silly riot!

#8 – BENNY BENASSI – SATISFACTION (2003)
Do I really need to explain?

#7 – LIVE – LIGHTNING CRASHES (1994)
The greatest exhibition of the power of stillness in a video.

#6 – BOMFUNK MCS – FREESTYLER (2000)
Strangely captivating video of a guy going crazy with a remote.

#5 – RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS – OTHERSIDE (1999)
Jagged shapes, discordant colours, and increasingly percussive movements – no video fits a song more perfectly.

#4 – SHAKIRA – WHENEVER, WHEREVER (2002)
Never mind silver bodypaint, cloning, volleyball, aerobics, flight attendants, marching bands, businesswomen, black-and-white beaches, butterfly women, skin peeling off, or the boundary-pushing efforts of Fountains Of Wayne and Duran Duran – this is my vote for sexiest video of all time.

#3 – U2 – ONE (1991) – black-and-white buffaloes version
A black screen, with the word “one” in various languages. Brilliant.

#2 – EIFFEL 65 – BLUE (1999)
Absolutely hilarious video of an Italy-based trio’s bizarre experience in trying to rescue a kidnapped member from a planet of deranged blue aliens.

#1 – THE FRAY – HOW TO SAVE A LIFE (2006)
The greatest – whether it’s a group of kids trying to come to terms with the loss of a loved one, or Dr Cox trying to restart the heart of a patient whose transplanted organs were infected (I know the latter is not a music video).
2002 had some great video clips, one of my favourites being "Point of View" by DB Boulevard, you know, the box song. It was a masterpiece for that time!
Don't forget about Tenatious D Tribute. Funny Video.
Yeah I agree, 2002 featured lots of great videos - my favourites:

Basement Jaxx - Where's Your Head At? (hilarious, 2nd best of 02)
David Franj - Oxygen
DB Boulevard - Point of View
DJ Sammy - Heaven (strangely interesting)
DJ Sammy - Boys of Summer
Elvis vs JXL - A Little Less Conversation (soccer version)
Eminem - Without Me (very funny)
Lifehouse - Spin
Michelle Branch - Goodbye to You
No Doubt - Hella Good
Shakira - Whenever Wherever (best of 2002)
Tenacious D - Tribute (very funny)
The Calling - Wherever You Will Go
U2 - Electrical Storm

I could probably mull over this for weeks and come up with more every day. A lot of good videos before me, a few surprising omissions. Top five videos ever;
5. Teardrop - Massive Attack - bizarre - and compliments the song perfectly.
4. Baby Got Back-Sir Mix A Lot - I agree with previous comments about the appalling standard of rap videos but this is just a hoot - giant prosthetic butt cheeks anyone??
3. Stinkfist-Tool - creepy
2. Garden Of Eden-Guns N Roses - Basic principle but just gets me - well suited to the 100mph, lyrically illegible nature of the song.
1. Just-Radiohead - the video got me into the song (and it's a great song). Video still spins me out and I'll start thinking about it at the oddest of times.

Honourable mentions to the following in no particular order;
Satisfaction-Benny Benassi
No Surprises-Radiohead
Come To Daddy-Aphex Twin
Coffee & TV-Blur
Sabotage-Beastie Boys
Hardest Button To Button-White Stripes
Institutionalized-Suicidal Tendencies
Alright-Supergrass
Hot For Teacher-Van Halen
Nick The Stripper-The Birthday Party
Wicked Game-Chris Isaak (Helena Christensen version)
Don't Come Around Here No More-Tom Petty
Liar-Rollins Band
Buddy Holly-Weezer
Fell In Love With A Girl-White Stripes
Hey Ya-Outkast
Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad-Moby
#1) Michael Jackson - Thriller
#2) Guns n Roses - November Rain
#3) Coolio - Gangsta's Paradise
#4) The Beatles - Hey Jude

I can think of a number of other videos.. but i wouldnt consider them for a top 10

Never been in this thread before. Some of my favourite clips ever (that come to mind right now) are:

The Verve - Bitter Sweet Symphony. I always stop and watch whenever I see it, I'm just fascinated as he bumps into people, jumps on cars and doesn't care. I'd love to walk down a street like that, just once.

Panic At The Disco - I Write Sins Not Tragedies. I'm just really amused and intrigued at the same time. I still don't really know why the groom ends up as the new leader of the troupe of circus freaks after seeing his bride cheating on him, but I don't care. Her face as she's caught with the mime is great, with all the paint and lipstick on it.

Daniel Powter - Bad Day. I find this really cute. I don't know why, probably just because I like the song so much, but I really like watching as the guy and the girl become a couple. I especially like the part where they take it in turns to draw on the advertisement, and the guy counteracts every depressing thing the girl draws.

Nickelback - Savin Me. I really like the idea of the countdown clocks above everyone's heads, and watching as the guy figures out what's happening and that he can stop it by saving someone.

OK Go - Here It Goes Again. Do I really need to explain? It's just a cool clip, such a simple idea and done so well.

The Androids - Do It With Madonna. I really like when all the fake popstars start fighting, and then the massive fake Madonna waddles in and takes over. As someone who is sick of Madonna, I'm amused by that. As well as the fake Lynne Spears getting ridden by fake Madonna.

Kylie Minogue - Did It Again. I always stop to watch this one too. It's the original idea for the Do It With Madonna clip, with all the different Kylie's in a line-up and they start fighting. I always though 'Cute Kylie' was the best Kylie has looked. I also like her clip for Confide In Me.

Sophie Ellis-Bextor - Murder On The Dancefloor. I just love watching as she sabotages everyone else in the competition and gets away with it. Awesome!

There are plenty more which will probably come to me at some point, these are just what I've got for now.
The best of 2009 so far (that immediately come to mind

1. Short Stack - Sway Sway Baby. I find it really funny, it's ridiculously over the top, but it is a soap opera parody so it's meant to be.

2. Pink - Please Don't Leave Me. I love watching to see what she'll do next to keep that poor guy stuck in the house with her. Awesome.

3. Lady GaGa - Paparazzi. Nice to see a video with a story like this. I like seeing her ridiculous outfits, especially the mouse (?) one when she offs her boyfriend.

4. Taylor Swift - You Belong With Me. A cute film clip with a nice story. I didn't realise for such a long time that the 'evil' girl in the clip is just Taylor in a brunette wig. She looks so different.

5. Tommy Trash - Need Me To Stay. Not so much for the two girls showering together and washing each other, but more for the fact that when they get electrocuted they keep dancing for a couple of minutes.
G'day, here's a couple of golden oldies that i enjoy watching :

Subterrianean Homesick Blues - Bob Dylan 1965
Sloop John B - The Beach Boys 1966
Paperback Writer / Rain - The Beatles 1966
Happy Jack - The Who 1966
Break On Through (To The Other Side) - The Doors 1967
Arnold Layne - Pink Floyd 1967
Stawberry Fields Forever - The Beatles 1967
The Unknown Soldier - The Doors 1967
Hey Jude / Revolution - The Beatles 1968

Back in the 1960's Video Clips where know as "Promotional Film Clips" and appeared on various music programes of the day eg. "Ready,Steady,Go" , "Top Of The Pops" etc.

The clips i've listed above are some of the earliest clips ever made in this medium, worth checking out
A couple more clips that I love that I remembered about.

Travis - Sing. This is one of my favourites of all time, and its just for the cheap humour. Posh people at a dinner party getting caught up in a ridiculously over the top food fight. It's so much fun. The lobster getting stuck on the woman's hat, the slow motion shot of the octopus flying through the air down the table and splatting into the lady's face. It's just great.

Nickelback - Someday. Even though it's not an original 'twist' ending and I predicted it coming, I still really enjoyed watching the story of it unfold, and working out exactly what had happened.
I'm happy for you, Ima let you finish BUT BEYONCE HAD ONE OF THE BEST VIDEOS OF ALL TIME! OF ALL TIME!

I forgot to add one of my ultimate favourites:

Bjork - It's Oh So Quiet.

I loved the clip way back when it was released, and I still do to this day. It's the reason I like the song so much. The big musical production of the whole thing works so well, and everytime I watch, I just have to pick on the one woman in the umbrella circle who puts hers up far too early, then keeps bumping into all the others as they twirl. Should have been fired! I love this clip.
mika happy ending, best video ever!
01) Evanescence - Lithium
02) the jacksons - can you feel it?
03) Lady GaGa - Telephone
04) Panic! At the disco - I wrote sins, Not tragedies
05) Britney Spears - Tox!c
06) Evanescence - call me when your sober
07) P!nk - Stupid Girls
08) Tenacious D - Tribute
09) Evanescence - My Immortal
10) Britney Spears - Stronger
