My favourite music video of all time would surely be "Do the Evolution" by Pearl Jam.

Here's a link to it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDaOgu2CQtI

I love this video because...
a) I love animation at all
b) I love the song
c) I love what Pearl Jam generally creates
d) the animation itself is pretty impressive
e) just look at what the video is about! The worst side of life especially of men during all periods of time. A topic like this never gets boring.

It's shocking, impressive and just too pretty to look away even though it has an ugly topic. Thumbs up!

Other music videos I adore are (with no specific order)...

Radiohead - There there
Mouse on Mars - Twift
Mouse on Mars - Distroia
Röyksopp - Remind me
Babylon Zoo - Animal Army
Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
Pink Floyd - Another Brick in the Wall Part II
Pink Floyd - Empty Spaces
Pink Floyd - Goodbye Blue Sky
Die Ärzte - Elke
Squarepusher - Come to my Selector
The Notwist - Chemicals
The Notwist - Pick up the Phone
Gorillaz - El Manana
Ken Ishi - Extra
Blur - Coffee & TV
Queen - I'm going slightly mad
Queen - I want to break free
The Lawyer - I wanna mmm
Fatboy Slim - Rockafeller Skunk
Aphex Twin - Windowlicker
Crazy Loop - Joanna shut up
Kraftwerk - Der Telefonanruf (Telephone Call)
Scatman John - Scatman
Weezer - Buddy Holly

I just love music videos whenever they're creative and original.
I can't stand to watch one clip with dancing half-naked women after another.
Good directors of music videos: Chris Cunningham, Spike Jonez, Michel Gondry...to name a few.

Always remember: The answer is forty-two, there can only be wrong questions!

:lol:!! I agree it's a very contrived kind of 'bait', and not very creative IMHO.

Great link Tobi

Really? Wow.

Yes, it sounded weird but I guess everyone knows what I mean.
And to be honest: if I was man maybe I would be (at least a little) bored, too.

Not all men, despite the media's, ( and some men ), to convince everyone are ruled by their appetites alone

BTW, for anyone interested, there's a site:
http://www.thejohnnycashproject.com/

going on that's kind of a cool nod to the man in black. They're doing an 'evolving video' of a song of his where you can select a frame in the video, draw on it ( right there on the site ), and then submit it to be included in the video. Now, you can't just draw a smiley face and it be included, because it does go before a kind of 'board'.

Before you can submit it, you do have to register because I think they contact you if you they choose one of your frames. But you can draw first, then register, which was a fantastic example of a really good website design process ( pre-planning emphasized ).

Really? Wow.

Since they won record of the year at The Grammys, I thought it only fitting to post an Arcade Fire song.

I know the video itself isn't particularly riveting but the music sure is!

I'm pretty sure they did a show together, don't recall where though. Dr John is amazing, last year I was lucky enough to see him do Tipitina live at the House of Blues in New Orleans.

My friend showed me this when I was bored. I fell in love with it on first view. The One by Gaelic Storm.

Look up The Night I Punched Russel Crowe by them as well. Someone made a Lego video to the song.

One more, not even gonna try to describe it.

I adore this simplistic little song. I wish people could still entertain while smoking!

Two versions of the same song, but charming as all get out (IMHO ):

Here are some of my fave videos.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rg7HRcRvpxQ
Covenant - Bullet. Great song and the video is so fitting. The CG is really well done in it too.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=taenK4JW0c0&feature=related
Dir en Grey - Ain't afraid to die. Such a beautiful song, dedicated to a fellow J-Rock artist called Hide. This video is amazing, really tells a story and sends shivers down your spine.
Die en Grey have got so many amazing videos, I wanted to post more but they are a J-Rock band and unfortunately the majority of the artistic/visually interesting ones have very adult themes so wasn't sure if it would be appropriate to link to them.

I'm bumping this thread with the thought that maybe for a little while we can interrupt this threads generally intended purpose, so that each of you can post a song here in honor of Katy and what she meant to you, or a song you think might uplift one of her family members should they pass through, or how you feel about this loss in general.

Please, again, post one and ONLY one song link with your post. This will avoid folks getting overloaded by too many songs from one poster.

Feel free to begin now...

Really? Wow.
