Favorite music video

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 
heres one that hasnt been done (or at least not in a while):
Whats your favorite music video? Any one who says anything by Britney spears or Nsync (or the clones) will get their face caved in.

Mine was In Repair by Our Lady peace, but I think that this takes the cake:

I'm currently enamored of the Chemical Brothers' Star Guitar- it's been getting some play on MTV2 and it's really a stunning set of visuals.

<a href="http://www.mtv.com/sitewide/videoplayer/index.jhtml?vid=14416" target="_blank">See the video here</a> (RealVideo)

Watch it, and really pay attention. You'll notice that the different pieces of the landscape are perfectly synchronized with the music as they enter the screen... absolutely ingenious.

I albsolutely love "Hell Bent" by Kenna. Also cool is Schism by Tool.

Oh, come on! You people are forgetting the classics!!

Devo - Whip it
Dire Straits - Money For Nothing

Now THOSE were great music videos.
post #9 of 38
the unedited version of "Closer" by NIN is bad ass.

if you want disturbing you should try some of the videos off the Broken CD though.

other than that..... there aren't a whole lot i've been impressed with. guess i'm just a NIN fan.

I'm gonna go with:
Pearl Jam - Jeremy (b/c it's so dark)
Smashing Pumpkins - Ava Adore (b/c Billy Corgan looks so scary)
Radiohead - No Surprises

Solishu, hellbent is just <a href="http://www.ifilm.com/ifilm/product/film_info/0,3699,68390,00.html?ad_ref=top_twenty_shorts_high est_rated&cch=" target="_blank">More</a> to (IMO) worse music (this film has AWESOME music).

However, yes, More has to be the all time best short film ever.

"Coffee and TV" - Blur

I wish I could find the video online. It was about the adventures of a tiny dancing milk carton as he roamed about the city (london I think).

I don't know which one of their's (Radiohead's) I saw, but it was a weird mixture of matrix style machinery and babies. Very strange but quite good.

Guys, guys, guys...a little respect please: Duran Duran's "Girls on Film".

Hubba hubba! What a smutty feast for the eyes that was to a 13-year-old accustomed to "Sanford & Son" and "Lou Grant".



Those guys made ass kicking videos back in the day! But for pure tent-popping pleasure, it doesn't get any better than "Girls on Film".

Naughty, naughty nurses...

More recently, I dug Sheryl Crow's "Everyday Is A Winding Road" just because she's wearing a dress in it.



Hall of Fame: the rotoscoping in Aha's "Take on Me" and the "We're Going to Tell a Story, Even if it kills us" Award to Pat Benatar's "Shadow's of the Night" and it's secret anti-Nazi spy mission, led by Pat and her rockin', guitar-slinging husband Neil.

It was the height of cinematic majesty back then. You see it now and it's the funniest, most overblown thing ever...and you'll laugh yourself sideways at the sheer balls it displayed.

Haha...man, you're not kidding. That's a three minute exercise in mulletdom and over-emoting!

And could Neal Schon's bluejeans be any higher on his waist? 5" of torso then BAM...chin!

*shiver*

I also have to give credit to "Wright and the Wrongs - Another Brick in the Wall part 2" for being one of the funniest (in a bad way) videos Ive ever seen. I think that it was intentional, but it is easily the worst video Ive ever seen given its subject matter (pink floyds another brick in the wall).
Fcuking funny tho.

No surprises, high and dry, - radiohead
rabbit in your headlights - Thom yorke
DAFT PUNK!!!! all of their videos are totally ****ing awesome....I love every single one.
Metal fingers in my body -Add n to (x)( really ****ed up..but you gotta love robot sex)
19-2000 - gorillaz
at the helm - Hieroglyphics
the exploding psychology - Squarepusher
undone -weezer
radio #1, playground love - Air
loser- beck

and a bunch others
I do like music videos alot, but MTV is a sucky source for them, and unfortunatly thats one of the only sources for them

Current favorite:
"The Nobodies" - Marilyn Manson

His videos are generally pretty good since he's a showman. And he's weird looking.

What was Manson's video with the house party and the hot chix0rs? That one was pretty good. I really really like, "Don't Like the Drugs but the Drugs Like Me."

Also, those Daft Punk videos are totally kick ass. Watch all four (or did a fifth one come out) back to back for the whole story.

HOW could I have forgotten them! Actually <a href="http://www.warprecords.com/vision/video.php?id=3" target="_blank">Come to Daddy</a>is one of the creepiest videos there has ever been. <a href="http://www.warprecords.com/video.php?mvf_id=35" target="_blank">Donkey Rhubarb</a>is pretty good two.

Also, I just saw a few Tool Videos, DAMN Stinkfist is GREAT! Its kinda in series just before Schism.

What was cooler, actually, were all the animations during the most recent Tool tour (where I saw them twice!). It was like watching a live music video. Really amazing performances.
