I don't just have the best video ever I have one of the best things done by a breathing group of humans ever on the face of God's green earth (and it can not be argued)

Sabotage by the Beastie Boys.

I tried to think of videos that I think I love more than the songs.  Or videos that had such an impact on me that they turned me onto to the songs.

"Too Funky" George Michael


"Digging in the Dirt" Peter Gabriel


"Thriller" Michael Jackson
(Please. Like you need a YouTube link.)

"Big Time Sensuality" Bjork (I could pick any Bjork video, but this is my favorite.)


"Enjoy the Silence" Depeche Mode

The cheesy black-and-white portions take away from it, but I just love the washed-out portions of Dave Gahan in a King costume walking across landscapes.

"Different Names for the Same Thing" Death Cab for Cutie (for anyone who was ever in high school or junior high band)


"Fake Plastic Trees" Radiohead


"Little Bird" Annie Lennox (self-mockery at its best)


Lately, I'm really loving
"Parking Lot Nights" Ghosthustler

A few Radiohead mentions and no "Just"?  Best video ever!  (But I should watch some of those already mentioned.)
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Just is great. I love the concept.
What? What are you talking about? It's girls and spaghetti. We love girls and spaghetti.

Every Michel Gondry video is pretty much amazing.

- The Chemical Brothers

- The White Stripes

- Beck

Others...

- Justice

- Feist
(I know it's overplayed like crazy (both song and video) but both song and video are great. Well, I think they are.)

But the amazingest "music video" of all is by Spike Jonze.

- Daft Punk

It used to scare me when I was a kid... :-X
