Welcome to the MacNN YouTube music video extravaganza!



I've always thought this was elegantly simple, effective, and somehow very moving.

And, oddly enough, the first two videos I thought of before even clicking the thread were Take on Me (posted by starman about three seconds before my post) and Dire Straits’ Money for Nothing for sheer revolutionariness.

Still, I’d have to say my favourite music video is Sigur Rós’ Viðrar Vel til Loftárása

YouTube - All is full of love
If you're going to choose a Björk video (most of which are amazing), why choose the suckiest one of the lot?

I must say I found your selection of M.C. Hammer... unexpected.

This isn't a real video per se, but I did think the Star Trek version of NIN's Closer was pretty damn good.

Folks in big pants jumping about - what's not to like?

(I actually use that song as a personality gauge. If the DJ puts it on and someone isn't dancing, foot tapping or at least finger tapping, there's something wrong with them and they get avoided.)
Been inclined to wander... off the beaten track.
That's where there's thunder... and the wind shouts back.

Do the Evolution is my #1. Smack my biatch, Come to daddy (freaked me out the first time!), Tonight Tonight.

Perfect Drug is up there, and I have a fondness for The Beautiful People.

The song was ok and all, but this is a thread about best music videos ever, and that was a snoozefest.
