    Your Favorite Music Videos

    Have we tried this one yet? Here's some of the top of my head.

    Old school:

    ABC- The Look of Love
    Billy Joel- Pressure
    Bryan Adams- Run to You
    Crowded House- Don't Dream It's Over
    The Outfield- Your Love

    Newer ones:

    Rhiana- Umbrella
    Dixie Chicks- Not Ready to Make Nice

    Others:

    Sara McLachlan- Sweet Surrender
    John Mellencamp- Human Wheels

    Re: Your Favorite Music Videos

    I have never been a really big video fan. When MTV started, I was still living at home and had no cable. No cable in college either so about the only exposure to videos I had was the old Friday Night Videos that they used to have on NBC.

    But there are some videos that I've really enjoyed. New Frontier by Donald Fagen and Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel are two that really stand out for me.

    Good thread.

    Re: Your Favorite Music Videos

    Wow, all-time...the ones which stick out in my mind first are:

    Genesis - Land of Confusion
    Motley Crue - Girls, Girls, Girls
    Guns 'N Roses - November Rain
    Guns 'N Roses - You Could Be Mine
    Blind Melon - No Rain

    And just about anything by Weird Al...specifically Fat.

    I'm probably overlooking a ton of them from the late 80's and early 90's. I never understood how so many contestants on Remote Control didn't know the videos in the final round. I think every single video from about '88 to '93 was fully engrained in my brain.

    I have an odd list, in no particular order

    Madonna - La Isla Bonita
    Living Color - Cult of Personality
    Natalie Merchant - Ophelia
    Linkin Park - In the End
    POD - Youth of a Nation
    Springsteen - Born to Run (Live concert footage version)
    The Cure - Any video from Disintegration.... The greatest album ever.
    U2 - Sunday Bloody Sunday.

    oh yeah, and Chris Issak - Wicked Game.

    And every video that has anything to do with Sarah McLachlan.

    Re: Your Favorite Music Videos

    Like someone said earlier, I just don't get into music videos. I listen to the music FOR the music. Having said that, I enjoyed the Gorillaz "Feel Good Inc.", as well as the cheesy YouTube vid OK Go put up for "Here It Goes Again", with the treadmills.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Going old school, The Beatles had a couple of good videos, whether they be movie snippets or promotions to the Ed Sullivan Show: Strawberry Fields Forever and Can't Buy Me Love from A Hard Day's Night come to mind.

    That one always makes me think of Crystal Gravy. . .

    Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
