    Best Music Videos?

    So with all the VH1-style music threads popping, I have to ask: What do you think are some of the best (or maybe most memorable) music videos of all time?

    In my opinion Spike Jonze is far and away the greatest director of music videos. His video for Weezer's Buddy Holly is so creative and well done, and is definitely one of my favorites.

    Other Spike Jonze classics include "Weapon of Choice" and "Praise You" by Fatboy Slim and "Sabotage" by the Beastie Boys.

    The video for "Hurt" by Johnny Cash is amazing for completely different reasons, and the timing of its release and the climax in the song make it very emotionally charged.

    But my all-time favorite is the incredibly immature video for "Danger! High Voltage" by Electric Six (with Jack White on vocals). Makes me laugh every time, and is fabulous to have others watch it to see their reactions. The actress could not be more perfect.

    Re: Best Music Videos?

    Dang you, Stumpy - we're too similar. My husband and I were actually having a Spike Jonze music video love-fest the other day. My favorite has to be the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" - it's just so insanely stylish (much like "Buddy Holly," another favorite). I also freaking love the "Danger! High Voltage" video - I love showing it to people for their reactions.

    P.S. I've never been a big Cash fan but his version and video for Hurt is beyond powerful!

    The original version of "Hurt" is great as well.

    All of Tool's videos are good.

    Re: Best Music Videos?

    To me, this is the most memorable music video ever. It was very innovative at the time, and if you were to make it again today it would still take a lot of planning and careful attention to detail...

    Re: Best Music Videos?

    I know Stumpy already listed it, but the video needs to be posted for anyone that hasn't seen it

    The first time the camera backs out always gets me rolling
