[color=#0000BF]Original title: The most brilliantest music videos.[/color]
I don’t know if many people here enjoy watching music videos. I have to admit that most of them I just ignore because it’s usually just the band or the artist jumping around like a monkey on stage.
But I do enjoy a good music video - one that is imaginative and entertaining and which seems to have a seemless “fit” with the music.
Today, music video’s often make or break a record.
There are some really creative and imaginative directors out there today, and while in recent times there has been alot of drivel regarding music videos, there have been some fantastic and imaginative videos which stand out from the crowd.
I’d like to nominate Jonathon Glazer’s video for “Street Spirit” as perhaps one of the most imaginative videos - 10 years old already. Jonathon Glazer also directed the video Virtual Insanity video by Jamiroquai.
…and also Michel Gondry’s video for the Chemical brothers’ “Let Forever Be” for superb choreography, surrealism and overall superbness. Michel Gondry (France) is perhaps one of my favourite ever directors.
Another absolutely stunning video is The Test, (Richard Ascroft/Chemical Brothers) by Nick Goffey and Dominic Hawley:
So, what’s your most brilliantest music video?
