Good Music Video Thread
01/10/2016 09:30 AM EST
Post some good music videos.

If you don't know what a music video is, I have composed a FAQ (Friends Asking Questions) about the subject.

What is a music video?
It's a video, occasionally set to music

Where did they come from?
No idea, not the point of this thread

What's so great about them?
Sometimes, they're artistic or whatever. Sometimes they just match the song really well. Sometimes they're just dumb fun

END OF FAQ (Friends Asking Questions)

Post some sweet music videos and also say why you think it's a sweet music video.

Note: Just because you like the song and it has a music video doesn't mean it's a Good Music Video.

To get things started:

Muse- Nights of Cydonia
High production value, goofy video, kickin' rad song.

Peter Gabriel- Sledgehammer Great stop-animation! A classic!

Guns N' Roses- November Rain One of the few times Axl's insanity and penchant for the extravagant actually paid off!

Sum 41- The Hell Song Action figures! Very dumb!

Michael Jackson- Thriller It's Thriller. It has the fucking zombie dance.

Dr.Dre feat. Snoop Dogg- Nuthin' But A G Thang Perfectly shows early 90s west coast Hip Hop. Love the sense of community.

Billy Joel- Uptown Girl This one was directed by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead 1-2, Army of Darkness, Spider-man 1-3, etc) way back in the day. Even has the car!

So, post some Good Music Videos
We've got chicken tonight. Strangest damn things. They're man made.

A few more memorable clips to check out:

- Hunters & Collectors - Talking to a Stranger
Australian avante garde smashed pub rock goes walkabout with interesting results.

- Pet Shop Boys - Opportunities (Let's Make Lots of Money)
Expert, pioneering use of layers and motion control.

- New Order - True Faith
Unmistakable Philippe Decouflé design. Not his best work, but plenty of circus panto.

- The KLF - Justified & Ancient (Stand By The JAMs)
The peak of the KLF spectacle, with bits of the greatest visual hits dispersed throughout (including the Stadium House Trilogy).

- Peter Gabriel - Digging in the Dirt
More Peter Gabriel stop-motion shenanigans. For the fan who couldn't stop at Sledgehammer.

- Bjork - Human Behaviour
Michel Gondry directs a cuddly hostile forest. Whimsy aplenty.

- Massive Attack - Karmacoma
Movie references go mad in trip hop classic.

- Daft Punk - Around the World
Obligatory video. More Michel Gondry, in sync with Daft Punk at their best.

- Sly & Robbie - Superthruster
Anime action compliments great track.

- The Chemical Brothers - Let Forever Be
A kaleidoscope of Michel Gondry goodness in the big city.

- Woodkid - Iron
Warriors of the world chase death and glory in stylish black & white.

P Diddy is the running man.
