I am a strong supporter that The Talking Heads' "Once in a Lifetime" is the greatest music video ever created. Great pick!

. Peter Gabriel makes some really funky, good videos .

The Talking Heads one, I get a kick out of it, 'cause, like I've said before, David Byrne looks like he's having a seizure in it. Although I found out recently that Toni Basil actually did the choreography for that one, so she's behind his bizarre dance.

"Burning Down The House" is another good video by them.

I can't believe I forgot that one! Just about every Beastie Boys video is too funny for words.

Is this that one I saw a really long time ago with those people playing the instruments against a black background or something like that, and the people were really stretched out and stuff?

LOL, that would be the one for "Don't Come Around Here No More". I remember Tom saying in a "Behind The Music" episode that the band were doing some serious drugs at that time, so that would explain things (seriously, bands have a habit of doing that-"You know, such-and-such story isn't twisted enough, let's make it even more twisted!" . That was how it was today-I saw a video from Greg Kihn for his song "Reunited", and it was a really weird take on "The Wizard Of Oz". It was funny, but very, very strange).

On the topic of disturbing videos...I've seen a couple of Aphex Twin videos that were pretty fucked up, and Tool's "Sober" is rather creepy, too. And then there was Prodigy's "Smack My B!tch Up"...that one was weird, too.

Don't watch too many music videos (product of the videoless generation -- what do you expect?) but I like The Cure's "Close to Me" and Peter Gabriel's "Games Without Frontiers" for a start...

typically, i'm not a big video fan. i find most videos to be uninspired, self-indulgent fluff. my favourites, off the top of my head (and partially inspired by the previous responses):

u2 - streets
pearl jam - do the evolution
beastie boys - sabotage
david bowie and trent - i'm afraid of americans
the cure - love cats
fatboy slim - weapon of choice
radiohead - no surprises

videos that were just fun and happy:

b-52s - love shack
dee-lite - groove is in the heart

i did also rather enjoy weird al's 'smells like nirvana'

LOL, Weird Al's made some great videos. I get a kick out of the one for "Like A Surgeon" .

The thing that I find interesting about this video...it's filmed in a really odd manner. The colors are all funky and everything. Good mention (like the others in your list, too) .
