A-Ha - Take on Me
Weezer - Buddy Holly
R.E.M. - the song mentioned above
U2 - Where The Streets Have No Name
Korn - Freak on A Leash
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Californication
The Cars - You Might Think
Smashing Pumpkins - Tonight, Tonight
Fat Boy Slim - Weapon of Choice
Devo - Whip It

That's all i can think of, i'm a big music video fan

So am I. In fact, I've been making a list of my all-time favorite videos, and I've got quite a few. Some of my personal favorites include:

"The Sweetest Thing" & "Where The Streets Have No Name"-U2
"Hourglass"-Squeeze
"Mary Jane's Last Dance" & "Don't Come Around Here No More"-Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
"Jeremy"-Pearl Jam
"One Step Ahead"-Split Enz (just love the whole look of this one)
"Land Of Confusion"-Genesis (brings back funny childhood memories)
"Runaway Train"-Soul Asylum
"Everybody Hurts"-R.E.M.
"Smalltown Boy"-Bronski Beat
"Weapon Of Choice"-Fatboy Slim
"Once In A Lifetime" & "Nothing But Flowers"-Talking Heads
"Wilbury Twist"-Traveling Wilburys
"Closer"-Nine Inch Nails
"One"-Metallica
"Thriller"-Michael Jackson (say what you will about his music and him and everything, but I gotta admit, this was a neat video)

Dresden Dolls - 'Coin Operated Boy' and/or 'Girl Anachronism'
Outkast - too hard to choose

Penny Lane-Beatles
Strawberry Fields-Beatles

These were both shown on Ed Sulivan. I don't know if they are the best videos. But they certainly were important because they were the first. The Beatles were way ahead of their time.

even earlier were promo videos they did for "rain" and i think "paperback writer" (or "day tripper" or one of those other revolver-era singles). i think this was the case anyway....it's been a while since i've dug out my beatles anthology tapes and watched them.

Agree with both of these (heh, listening to Coldplay right now, actually-not the song that went with the video you mentioned, but...) .

seeing as i'd call that my favorite coldplay song (with close competition only coming from "amsterdam" intro), i really should have known that.

now that would definetly be on my list for your thread about cool music in songs.

Couldn't say I'd disagree with that one.

This isn't official but I always thought the first music video was Bob Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues, it was a single shot a man with cue cards that went along with the song.
