Number 1 has to be David Hasselhoff's "Hooked on a Feeling". The link to the video is down right now, but here is a link to stills.

5. Bjork: "Joga" (I used to be a geologist, so I loved this one)
4. Peter Gabriel: "Sledgehammer" (Nick Park was involved in this one: he animated the dancing chickens)
3. Queens of the Stone Age: "Go With the Flow" (kick ass visuals and a great song)
2. Beastie Boys: "Shadrach" (ridiculously cool oil-painting animation, the multi-angle version on the CC set is one of the greatest things ever on DVD)
1. Prodigy: "Smack My Bitch Up" ( the best video ever, IMO, and it was banned here in the US)

That video is like a middle finger at the audience, but I love it as well.

A lot of the mainstream artist videos are crap. I like Reznor's stuff, and some of the others. But normally, videos now a days are just the singer dancing and singing. My, how creative. A lot of the country videos (which there doesn't seem to be many country fans on here) are decently creative... Toby Keith comes to mind. His are pretty funny.

Wasn't a big fan of Prodigy, but have to admit the video for "Smack my Bitch up" was pretty cool.

David Hasselhoff ->

I haven't kept up in recent years, er, decades, but two of my favorites were "Vienna" by Ultravox and "I Don't Remember" by Peter Gabriel. And if it counts as a video, "Subterranean Homesick Blues" by Bob Dylan (probably the most copiesd video in history).

I'm not a big fan of Radiohead, but they've got some pretty good videos.

The best, however, would have to be Jennifer Lopez' "Taco Flavored Kisses": http://images.southparkstudios.com/m...oredkisses.mov

I have to agree with Jennifer Lopez on this one. Also the video for "I'm Not a Child (It's OK to Do Me)" is pretty solid.

Wendersfan - A lot of Gabriel's stuff were creative. And I remember that one by Ultravox, though I liked their video for "Reap the Wild Wind" a little better.

I don't remember too many early Dylan videos, but with his creative mind, I'm sure he was able to come up with some good ones.

I think you've seen this one. It's the video where Dylan's standing in the alley holding giant placards with the lyrics written on them. Allen Ginsburg is lurking in the background...

The reason I don't think of it as a "video" is because it was originally part of D.A. Pennebaker's film Don't Look Back.

Yeah, I think have seen that one. Because then INXS kind of stole the idea for "Mediate" at the end of "Need You Tonight"

I agree - I've seen this video many times and can't say enough good things about it... the special effects in particular are the best since "Ice Station Zebra"... David really broke through the glass ceiling of what we normally see achieved with "blue-screen" technology...

Visit the David Hasselhoff Concert Hall for some audio to go with the visuals.

I won't mention any of the excellent choices already mentioned. I will point out, though, that it takes more than just beauty to make a video good: in my opinion, it has to be watchable over and over. The ones I'm listing may not be the technically or aesthetically best, but they're five of my faves.

No particular order:

1. Outside of America, Michael Jackson's video for "Smooth Criminal" consisted of that scene taken straight from Moonwalker.
Jackson's videos were always good, but I did like that one a bit more than the others.

B. Gorillaz - "Clint Eastwood". I've got this vid on CD-Roma AND two DVDs - didn't plan it that way, but I don't complain when it comes on.
It has excellent animation, it's very fun, and begins with a Dawn Of The Dead quote - what's not to like?

III. I hate to pick two animated videos in a row, but U2's "Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me" is fabulous.
It edges out "Faraway, So Close" by just a tad.

- - No-one's mentioned "Buddy Holly" by Weezer yet?
Amazing!

e. Of course...



"Clearly I remember, picking on the boy..."

Such a disturbing video.

Wow, I picked five videos that had nothing to do with Romanek, Gondry or Fincher. Oh wait, I have a Jonze. Ah well.
