Which Radiohead video has Thom Yorke in that helmet or whatever, submerged in water? I've never seen it but this thread made me remember what I've heard about it.. only I can't remember what song it is.

- how about almost every video in 1985, when i see the old school ones today it just blows me away how bad most were.

- what about that phil collins / genesis video with all the cartoon people? i do not remember the name and am too lazy to look it up.

- Da Funk by Daftpunk is odd - but one of the coolest videos ever

No, I haven't. I'll watch for it the next time I'm watching videos.

It is a creepy video. Cool, but really creepy...those people's big grins make them look psychotic.

There was another video I saw one night when I was watching MuchMusic a long time ago...it was from a band whose name started with a D...can't remember their name at the moment, or the song...but I know the video was odd...it had a claymation type guy running through a forest or something.

Two other videos that are very goofy: Trio's "Da Da Da" video, and Bjork's "Human Behaviour" video.

I'm actually kind of glad I didn't know for sure which video it was. But yes, you're right. That was the one that showed on primetime and then people who were watching with their kids got really pissed off about it.

And Burning Down the House--Classic!

I've never seen it, but I've heard that the Radiohead video where everyone lies down is pretty strange.

Ah yes! Burning Down the House! I LOVE the Talking Heads, and this video got me into them, when I was, I don't know, three or something. But still, it used to freak me out. The scariest part for me, was at the end, with David Byrne's face on the road. Very eerie.

Also Whip It is also one of my favorite videos ever. "Ride 'Em Cowboy!"

Other videos that used to freak me out:

*Rockwell--I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watching Me
*Men At Work--Who Can It Be Now (not as frightening, but still, when you're 4 it is)
*Level 42--Something About You (the lead singer looks just like a ventriliquist's doll, and at one point, makes this sort of scary face in the dark with a light shining on his face)

Yep, I'm a dork.

Yes, that part is definitely eerie, especially with the music at the end of that song-that and the fire on the side of the house and all that.

The only reason I know about that is because of the VH1 countdown of the 100 Greatest Videos and the 100 Most Shocking Moments countdown in which they talked about that video.

Mmhm. And he had to apologize for any pain or whatever that his video may have caused.

He shouldn't have had to do that.

I find "Come On Eileen" by Dexter's Midnight Runners to be a disturbing video just for the clothing being worn in it.

Who ever thought that wearing just overalls would be a good look? Disturbing, indeed.

I agree with both of those, they're both pretty weird stuff!

I concur. And it wasn't just one guy...it was the whole band.

*shudders*

Yeah, Nirvana's "Heart Shaped Box" video is definitely weird.

Another one-I watched this video last night and can't believe I didn't think to mention it sooner-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' video for "Mary Jane's Last Dance".

Yep. That one's definitely screwed up.

And it's got a kinda creepy ending.
