what are your favourite music videos?

might as well do this, i'm sure it's been done before but i don't think it's been done in some time.

U2 - Where The Streets Have No Name
I just love those cuts of people dancing to the music.
U2 - New Year's Day
One word - snow.
Elastica - Connection
It's very colourful, very art-project. Great visuals.
Manic Street Preachers - If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next
Most of their videos are crap, but this one's brilliant. It's very eerie and the concept is fantastic.
Manic Street Preachers - A Design For Life
Not as good as Tolerate, but you gotta love sloganeering.
Radiohead - Just
Just a brilliant concept, and very funny and thought provoking.
New Order - True Faith
It's just so weird and funny.
Coldplay - The Scientist
Just a lovely idea to a lovely song.
Blur - To The End
Because of the 'Last Year At Marienbad' influence.
Blur - Coffee & TV
Great idea, excellently pulled off.
Pulp - Common People
Loads of extras and Sadie Frost. Just very clever.
Satanicide - Jerzy Nites
http://www.satanicide.com . Genius.

Have you seen the video for "She Is Suffering"?

U2 - Discotheque: This video took guts. lol.
U2 - I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For: Great video, especially with the part with Bono doing the little hat dance.
Outkast - Miss Jackson: A hell of a lot better than most rap videos. Plus, the animals are cute.
UNKLE feat. Thom Yorke - Rabbit In Your Headlights: Just a good video.
Beck - every video. Really.
White Stripes - Seven Nation Army: Recent, but hypnotizingly good, har har.

I'm sure there's loads more, but that's all I can think of for now.

I have a short memory. Tool make fantastic videos. Awesome fx. I think Pink's Family Portrait was wonderfully done. I think the music helps influence these choices though, as I only remember the ones of bands/songs I like.
I also love U2's WIWY it got me into U2 in the first place, and Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me, Kill Me for the same reasons as Squishy Peanut

I have kind of a long list here...there's been lots of great videos I remember.

U2 videos:

-Discotheque (hilarious)
-Where The Streets Have No Name (I love how this video was filmed even while the police were trying to shut them down, it was all live and everything)
-I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For (it's just cool to see them hanging out downtown and being all friendly with the passerby)
-One-all three versions (the drag one and the buffalo one are particularly interesting)
-Mysterious Ways (it's spastic and funky and weird)
-Numb (very odd)
-Lemon (again, odd)
-Stay (like the angels thing)
-Even Better Than The Real Thing (the images and the spinning and all that...just very interesting and creative)

Tom Petty videos:

-Don't Come Around Here No More (very twisted...yeah, I like weird videos)
-Mary Jane's Last Dance (creepy, but intriguing)

Miscellaneous ones:

-Closer-Nine Inch Nails (still say this is the most f*cked up video I've ever seen)
-Everybody Hurts-R.E.M. (very relatable)
-Thriller-Michael Jackson (I like the whole concept)
-Black Hole Sun-Soundgarden (bizarre and unique)
-Runaway Train-Soul Asylum (a great way to help a cause...this video needs more recognition, imo)
-One-Metallica (drives home a good point about the horrors of war)
-Right Now-Van Halen (makes you think)
-Loser-Beck (very amusing video...still curious as to why those girls are dancing in that cemetary, though......)
-Once In A Lifetime and Burning Down The House-Talking Heads (weird and creative and neat...I still say David Byrne's having a seizure in the Once In A Lifetime one. Either that, or he's actually a puppet being moved around by someone)
-Land Of Confusion-Genesis (brings back memories from my childhood)
-Sledgehammer-Peter Gabriel (same reason as Land Of Confusion)
-Jeremy-Pearl Jam (very creepy-Eddie Vedder looks psychotic in it...but it's a very important video, deals with the subject matter in a great way)

Okay, I'll stop there-that's my list for now.

Angela

The Bitter End - Placebo
Electrical Storm - U2
Yellow, Trouble - Coldplay
Ugly - Bubba Sparxxx
Don't Come Around Here No More - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
Losing My Religion - R.E.M.
Hey Jupiter, Spark - Tori Amos

Dang. I don't really get to see many videos anymore, what with the M in MTV and the V in VH1 becoming meaningless. Those are just a few I've made a point to see or can remember seeing. I'm sure there are many more.
