Ditto. Plus, the video is just so dark! That always bugged me.

Love Electrical Storm, love the Corbijn and the bar version of One, love Even Better Than the Real Thing.

Streets, Lemon, Stay ... lots of good ones.

Oh, I also really like If God Will Send His Angels. I don't think that one gets many mentions.

I love the setting and simplicity. Not your typical '80s video, lol.

Ha! As soon as I saw this thread title, that one came to mind for me. Love it.

So much video goodness in the 90s that I could probably list all of them and attempt to rank them, but the three that come to mind instantly for me are the above, Wild Horses, and Stay.

As for my own reply, I'll have to think about it for a while.

I'm not sure anything fit the song, fit the era and fit the general zeitgeist like The Fly.

That was the only "blow me away" moment a music video has ever given me.
