Favorite Music Videos of 2007

Between Youtube and artists' or labels' sites, it's finally easy to see new music videos again (as MTV certainly doesn't show them). I honestly think I've watched more music videos this year via the internet than I've seen in the last 3 years totaled.

I thought it would be enjoyable to list our favorite music videos from 2007 with links so others could watch if so inclined. Here are mine in no order, I'm sure I'll end up forgetting something:


Bat For Lashes - 'What's A Girl To Do'

Incredibly fun video set to an incredibly catchy and fun song. Add some slight referencing to the great movie, Bottle Rocket, and you have a winner in my book.

Low - 'Breaker'

I have no idea what's going on in this video, but the choreography and editing alone makes it worth watching.

M.I.A. - 'Boyz'

I'm sure someone else will end up posting her most popular one from the year, which is admittedly probably the better video, but I prefer this one (better song and she looks more attractive here)

Spoon - 'The Underdog'

Entertaing song, even more entertaining video.

Kanye West - 'Can't Tell Me Nothin''

You'll either absolutely love or absolutely hate this song, but there's no denying that the video is amazing to watch. Beautiful, love it.

Dan Deacon - 'Crystal Cat'

I just learned of this band last month (who would have guessed that a music store in Taiwan would have a Jagjaguwar listening display up?!) The last section of this video gives me goosebumps every time. Moving stuff.

Having seen the Kanye and Battles videos before, I can't wait to plow through and watch all of these videos. Keep posting this kind of stuff, I'm really loving these songs.

I don't watch music videos much, so I'll be interested in browsing these.

Also, there was a video I saw a couple of times in the last month or so, think on MTV2 or something-the singer in it looked kinda like Borat, I wanna say...and at the end of it, he's standing at a window watching a funeral procession go by, and I think there's a bunch of kids with him-I'm trying to figure out who the artist was and what the song was, but I can't remember. Anyone know?

Gogol Bordello? Günter? Maybe neither, but those are the only two artists I can think of that look like Borat.

I've actually never seen the video for Heinrich Maneuver, that's pretty cool! I was going to list Young Folks as well, but when I looked it up I saw it was made in 2006, so I thought some people may complain, hehe. Regardless, the album came out in North America in '07, so I think it's still a good pick. I will watch the other vids you posted. More people need to post videos.


The poster formerly known as Cujo/Pinball Wizard just introduced me to this one today. Not surprisingly, I liked it a lot.

Muscles - 'Sweaty'

The name Gogol Bordello sounds vaguely familiar to me...that may be who it was. I'll keep searching-I just remember finding that video rather interesting, when I find out who it is, I'll post the link here. Thanks for your help either way .

Yeah, it's a bit hard sometimes with these songs-sometimes a single will be released one year but won't take off until the following year, sometimes it's released in one part of the world at one point and another part of the world doesn't hear it until later...it's confusing.

I'm glad you liked the Interpol video, it is pretty neat. I'm always curious who comes up with the ideas for some of these videos, there's some very creative people out there.

I fully agree. Anyone got any other suggestions, bring 'em on. And watch away, hope you like some of the other videos shared here as well.

Ok, it's been mentioned in another thread, but this really deserves its props:

Snoop Dogg - 'Sensual Seduction'

Did "This Is Not A Movie or Maybe" come out this year or last? The song is great, of course, but Will Sheff's hair makes the video less than stellar.


Have you seen the new Battles video for the song Tonto?
