Your Favourite Music Videos

Recommended Posts

Music Videos can sometimes be a work of art themselves, be it because of their style, a story that is told, or because it has some unique idea behind it.

Here are some of my favourites (I'm sure i can think of more):

Pearl Jam - Do The Evolution

This video brought me the idea to start this thread. A disturbing look on humankind.

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

Some cool effects, considering it's from 1975, where music videos consisted mainly of footage of live performances.

Fatboy Slim - Praise You

What can I say, I like the dance :grin:

Ich + Ich - Dienen

That's a German song, but you don't have to get the lyrics; the video tells the story for itself... "Someday you will serve someone. Someone who's smaller and weaker than you..."

I think RHCP tops most music video maker lists. I am particularly fond of Otherside, Aeroplane, Can't Stop, Soul to Squeeze... and Dani California is pretty good too.

I like the 'Come as you are' video.

I love the bright, happy, yet somewhat ironic 'No Rain' video

and I like the profound but ? video of Mmm mmm mmm mmm

This is a live performance of "Lipstick Vogue" that is most ripping.

This is "A Quick One" taken from The Rolling Stones "Rock and Roll Circus." Allegedly, this performance put the Stones performance to shame, so the project was shelved.

Another great song from R&R Circus. Dirty Mac (Lennon/Clapton/Richards)

This is the video for Gimme Shelter. Be fore warned, it shows domestic violence and may be hard to watch for some.

I haven't seen too many videos lately, but I like "Weapon of Choice" by Fatboy Slim and there was one by Tori Amos with Adrien Brody in it where one of them was a hand and the other was a foot....that was clever

Here's an '80's classic for you, "Cry" by Godley and Creme. MJ ripped this off when he did "Black or White". I am not clever at finding this stuff, but if you can, it's a good one.

Yes, it was, and that's what made it so great. He usually plays these wackos, and here he is smiling and dancing.....

Thanks Jenny, I never seen either the Tori Amos, nor the Godley and Creme one. Both are very cool. :)

Godley & Creme ~ Cry

Tori Amos ~ A Sorta Fairytale

And of course I like to watch Christopher Walken dancing, too :coolio:

Fatboy Slim ~ Weapon Of Choice

a slightly different realm of music, but I think the song "Trying To Find Atlantis" by Jamie O'Neill is hysterical. Too bad she screwed up the video so bad. There were so many things she could have done with that and someone dropped the ball.
