I'd just thought I'd found this rather simple topic. Not too unlike other topics in other sections. Just if there are some Music Videos which impress you, especially for their visuals (you don't necessarily have to like the song), then share them with us, via links from certain sites known for uploaded video clips.

And I know people have favourite artists/groups or what have you. But please refrain from just constantly posting just like, ALL, of your favourite band's videos or something. Though some are ok ofcourse. I guess this thread is meant more for the ones we appreciate visually, or for both visual and audio maybe.

I guess, for starters, I watched the following Music Video for the song, 'Friday I'm In Love' by 'The Cure' today. Certainly not my most favourite Music Video, but I hadn't seen it for quite a while and I've always quite liked it. Single released 1992:

^ I like Daft Punk, but I HATE voiceovers in music videos; I think it ruins the song. I prefer Around The World.
Subtitles for the win! Augie March got it right with The Cold Acre. =D
Some great animated ones can be found in here.

Found a clip of the last one for Savvi:

Black or White - Michael Jackson

Hmm, here's another one of Wacko Jacko's hits. Perhaps one of his biggest. Followed by a 'tribute' and another video tributing Jacko's, 'Thriller.' The first tribute is quite a famous one, by a man synonymous with parodying pop hits and the latter is just, weird :P :

Beat It - Michael Jackson


Eat It - Weird Al' Yankovic


Goli Mar (Aka 'Girly Man') - Chiru

Kylie Minogue has some great ones in recent years that I like for the outstanding visual, sets, dance routines, etc

"Come Into My World" (Grammy Award Winner! :D)
and "Love At First Sight"

Some of my other favourites for their visual/ backdrops/ audio, etc....

Julian Lennon - "Saltwater"
Paula Abdul & MC Skat - "Opposites Attract"
Robert Palmer - "Simply Irresistable"
Madonna - "Vogue"
Sarah McLachlan - "World On Fire" (Impressive! She did her research in terms of how money could have been spent by the entertainment world for third world countries)
Savage Garden - "I Knew I Loved You"

For AM47:

Michael Jackson - Thriller
Meat Loaf - I Would Do Anything For Love
Crash Test Dummies - MMM MMM MMM MMM


hehe I'm probably posting too many :P :

Darryl Braithwaite - One Summer - an 80s Aussie summer encapsulated? :) 1988


2 Pac - California Love - This video probably had a reasonable budget :P . And yo' 'tis gives props to Mad Max, by using it's props! Chris Tucker features in a minor role, pre-Fifth Element and Rush Hour. 1996


The Prodigy - Firestarter - Simple, but the lead singer is great in that get up, in black and white. It's like straight from a horror film. I find often the simple clips can be just as effective. 1996


Janet Jackson - That's The Way Love Goes <---Watch out for a young Jennifer Lopez as one of the dancers in the video ;) 1993

Duran Duran - Girls on Film (Uncensored) - Warning: Uncensored and somewhat chauvinist? :o ;) 1983

Oh well let's add 2 more, from a more acutely masculine perspective :D :

Sir Mixalot - Baby Got Back 1992

Wreckx-n-Effect - Rumpshaker 1993
