Good Music Videos

Recommended Posts

Inspired by the new movies thread:

I saw this video for Captain Ahabs "I Can't Belive It's Not Booty" and it changed the way I thought about music videos:

Another good one is "Rubber Johnny" by Chris Cunningham for Aphex Twin:

Like movies, there are a lot of good music videos out there, but there is a lot more shit, and the good ones never get seen and the shit is everywhere.

Other good ones?

^ That was a lazy post.

I read Pitchfork bunch, despite their snobbishness, can't believe I missed that.

guilty pleasure - rammstein, sonne: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vsIYXZ-xYk&search=sonne

and this one for pure raw gay audacity - how do you pitch a video that consists of lots of naked greased muscled blokes writhing and wrestling in a big homo-erotic teutonic flesh pile to an ostensibly straight german industrial metal band? - rammstein, man geggen mann - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DGsR9Ppfu0&search=rammstein%20man%20

Chris Cunningham is great, but already mentioned quite a bit on here. I like "Sabotage" from the Beastie Boys cuz it always makes me laugh and "C.R.E.A.M." from Wu-Tang is a classic too from the best days of hip hop and one of the best albums ever. And "November Rain" from GNR is f*cking epic.

But hands down I think the best music video ever is the DJ Shadow song "Six Days" directed by Wong Kar Wai.

http://www.ifilm.com/ifilmdetail/2447081 - nah, i don't get it. doyle's saturated colour cinematography and wai's melodramatic, and slightly emo, romance, though impressive, doesn't really do it for me.

i prefer my east german industrial rockers pretending to be the seven dwarves.

sabotage is great, probably one of the most important music video ever, all the other video from spike jonze are amazing ,especially this for fatboy-slim

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RI-bIubP6hg

I LOVE SPIKE JONZE!

Michel gondry is a genius. And french like me. tons of music video , I've seen one very late few month ago, that was really great, I don't remenber the name of the band, it was about a split screen with two girls... one in each side, if someone remenber the name...

Chris cunniganm also. portishead bjork and afex twin video are all very good example too.

But the best one for me is thirty three by the smashing, seems like en holga camera movie!!!!

can't find it in youtube!!! well. seems like I have to open an Id on youtube to resolve this problem...
