inspired by ivankays thread...

What are some of the greatest music videos of all time in your opinion (youtube/etc. links encouraged!)
Even if the song is meh or shit, but happens to have an awesome video....

Not to flood with videos, I'll just post one random one at the top of my head...

Michael Jackson-Smooth Criminal

MJ has several videos that could be put here, but this video is sort of epic.
It prolly is the only good thing that came from his MOONWALKER movie.
The choreography and dancing is just amazing. The song is ok, but the video is what makes the song excel. It's one of those videos you can watch over and over.

Cibo Matto - Sugar Water - by Michel Gondry

Great band, great song, great director. Simply one of the greatest videos ever made, imo.

i really loved the "smack my bitch up" video. even though it took me years to see it.

the aha "take on me" video was dope.

and if we're doing michael jackson, i just don't see how thriller can be topped. i used to watch it like it was a scary movie as a kid.

i didn't watch many music vidoes though, except in high school. mainly because MTV makes me want to stab my eyes out.

For the lulz.

What the.... are those ALL impersonators? Some of them look exactly like the real person. In fact, almost all of them sound exactly the same as the person they are impersonating. To be honest, I was only thrown off when Kurt Cobain came into the video.

Any video that shows the band playing fails. Why not just watch concert footage? Even though they do show the band playing during the bridge, the Freak on a Leash video is really good.

man, Weezer, the Chemical Brothers and Radiohead have so many consistently Great Videos. As popular as it is, "Pork and Beans" is ridiculously Great. i wonder how future generations will appreciate it. They definitely will have access to the references, but will they "love" it:

I have to admit that I haven't really watched MTV or any other station that plays music videos in a long time, nor have I tracked any down on YouTube. But when I did watch MTV, I always really enjoyed David Lee Roth's mini-movies, starting with: Van Halen's Hot for Teacher, Roth's California Girls, and Just a Gigolo

I can't believe no one has talked about

Prodigy's "SMack My Bitch Up"

jQxgvDn0Iko

or Bjork's "Pegan Poetry" where shes having sex the whole time. Both great videos. Every video by Bjork is a work of art though.

I think this is a great music video. Well done, very sexy. Like the song a lot too

Ciara's "Promise"
