    I was watching Johnny Cash's Hurt and it lead me to wonder what is the best music video out there.

    I'd say this one is near the top.
    One of my favs is also Metallica's One.

    The Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up" is still tops in my books.

    The new White Stripes video is quite visually appealing. Bjork has some great stuff as well. Gotta rank Beck up there too.

    Bowie's long-form "Jazzin' For Blue Jean" - nothing gets any better than it!

    Roy Orbison's "Drove All Night" video stars Jennifer Connelly looking her best, so that's hard to beat. The video single of it is virtually the last VHS tape I own.

    I wish it was possible to get decently edited compilations of favorite music videos. [​IMG]

    Agree with the Tool videos. Eerie stuff.

    Thriller is still the best, though.

    Judging from the number of votes Ah-Ha has received, I bet that I'm not the only person who wishes that he had recorded full VHS tapes of 80's era MTV to view now. The old videos are the best in my opinion. Two of my favorites are:

    1) "Shock the Monkey"
    2) " You've Got Another Thing Coming"

    You can find some rare videos online. I download them all the time and make them into VCDs. The worst video of all time is the Chicago Bears - Superbowl Shuffle. [​IMG]
