What's everyone's favorite video? My current fav's are "Keep Fishin'" by Weezer,and "You Know Your Right". Alltime would have to be Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box".

dammit witeout addict you stole my thunder!!!
Everytime a greatest video countdown airs
on mtv or vh1, i wonder why heartshaped box is
never even shown. Its better than teen spirit
in my opinion. Funny thing about 3 1/2 weeks ago
i saw heart shaped box air on mtv for the first time in say ohh 3 or 4 years. Damn near forgot how fuckin killer
that video is. I especially love the version where he blankly stares into the camera withouth blinking for the
whole final verse.

Lemme see, ones I like now...OK Go and Queens Of The Stone Age. Bout it. "Fell In Love With A Girl"'s been the only video I've really really liked in a while. I liked "Keep Fishin'" though, but I wouldn't consider that current anymore. And I haven't seen YKYR but I'm already tiring of the song. Hmmm...videos have sucked lately.

YES, the Zero 7 video's really well done, forgot about that. Probably because I'm completely indifferent to the song. Just caught the "You Know You're Right" video on MTV2, so throw it onto my list, why the hell not. It's good for what it is, again, even if the song's already tiring on me. Oh, and how could I forget what are quite possibly the greatest videos of the year: Good Charlotte's "Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous" and Bowling For Soup's "Girl All The Bad Guys Want".

I have a kinda low-key music awards thing every January, and, to date, the Best Music Video winners have been:

1996: "Tonight, Tonight" - The Smashing Pumpkins
1997: "Paranoid Android" - Radiohead
1998: "Body Movin" - The Beastie Boys
1999: "Learn To Fly" - Foo Fighters
2000: "Californication" - Red Hot Chili Peppers
2001: "Imitation of Life" - R.E.M.

Obviously, no 2002 winner for a few more months, although I'd bet anything "Fell In Love With A Girl" takes it.

(Oh, and conversely, here are your winners of Worst Music VIdeo during the same time period:
1996: "Head Over Feet" - Alanis Morissette
1997: "Mo Money Mo Problems" - The Notorious B.I.G. (feat. Puff Daddy and Mase)
1998: "Everybody (Backstreet's Back) - The Backstreet Boys
1999: "Larger Than Life" - The Backstreet Boys
2000: "Music" - Madonna
2001: "Lady Marmalade" - Christina Aguilera, Mya, Pink and Lil Kim)

Oh c'mon "Lady Marmalade" isn't that bad. Mya has a really nice ass! And Bon Jovi had to have something that year. Oh and for reasons I'm not sure, "Tonight Tonight" triggered me to remember that Garbage's "Push It" is really really awesome. As is "Learn To Fly". And "Imitation Of Life", which got hosed in every way possible. Oh and "Last Stop: This Town" by The Eels. And "Rabbit In Your Headlights" by U.N.K.L.E. And...probably something else but I'll stop now.

Rabbit in Your Headlights, however disturbingly so, is probably the most artistic music video I've ever seen. That last bit is just beautiful.

Hmm, I guess I'm really old-school here but my favorite video is "SledgeHammer!" by Peter Gabriel. I rarely watch music channels or listen to the radio but my favorite one I've seen semi-recently would be...Elvis/JXL--"A Little Less Conversation". Oh, and one other video I really like--The Beatles: "Free As A Bird."

Oh yes, "Keep Fishin" is up there. Muppets will work wonders. A couple of other classics that I've seen:

* Garbage: "Push It".
* Foo Fighters: "Learn to Fly".

There's a lot more... you can read. A few others I don't think anyone's mentioned:

* DJ Shadow: "You Can't Go Home Again". Although I haven't seen "Star Guitar" by the Chemical Brothers, it's the same sort of premise: the video builds upon rhythmic and melodic elements in the song. Kinda hard to describe, but very good.

* Pulp: "Bad Cover Version". Complete send-up of the "Do They Know It's Christmas?" video, featuring Kurt Cobain, Missy Elliot, Paul McCartney, and David Bowie. In impersonator form, of course. Absolutely hilarious.

Not up there, but still underrated:

* Ben Folds Five: "Brick". An absolutely beautifully shot video, with a great storyline that's actually related to the song.

No love for November Rain? I wonder how many people actually read Del James' atrocious story because of that video. Actually, the whole "trilogy" is amazing. Here's my list because it's fun to make lists.

No offense, but I HATED the Star Guitar video. Though the length of the song probably didn't help. But, yes, "Bad Cover Version" is great, don't know how I could forget it since I just saw it last week.

Clearly the best video ever is, well, the only video I'm IN.

"Shootin' the Gift" by Hip Club Groove.

Oh yeah, and that "Thriller" one is pretty good too, I guess. :)

"Lady Marmalade" won, almost entirely, for Christina Aguilera's hair. Personally, I felt the award should've gone to that "controversial" Madonna video they hyped up for weeks, only showed once (at the stroke of midnight), and basically consisted of her shooting a police officer with a squirt pistol. Talk about manufactured controversy. Still, I just pick the nominees, not the winners.

(And, what's interesting, every one of those other videos you mentioned were nominated in their respective years... Well, except U.N.K.L.E.'s. I didn't see that until it was almost two years old. It definitely would've been, though.)

And, did you know, that the concept for the "Keep Fishing" video was originally presented to Ozzy Osbourne for the "Dreamer" video, but Sharon nixed it because she wanted "something dark".
