Favorite Music Videos

Man, I can’t believe this thread hasn’t been started yet. (Forgive me if it has, I couldn’t find it.)

These are undoubtedly, my top three (Excluding everything by OK GO, because everything they put out is great):

Magnum Bullets - Night Runner

Starlight Brigade - TWRP

Shelter - Madeon, Porter Robinson

Ok, this should be in the top three, but I ran out of threes.

Doom Crossing: Eternal Horizons - The Chalkeaters

Honorable mentions:

OTTER POP - Shawn Wasabi

Shut Me Up - Mindless Self Indulgence

Think They Know - Peter Pepper

Well, I believe this to be a classic and the animation was way ahead of its time back in 1986.

Nigel Stanford - Automatica

Jerobeam Fenderson - Blue Spirals

Jerobeam Fenderson - Planets

In the Jerobeam Fenderson videos, the music when played through an oscilloscope in X-Y mode generates the images.

I agree. I remember the stir it caused at the time due to its innovative production.

Just as a footnote you couldn’t get a PC Magazine for ages without having the free Multimedia disc (which was a big thing at the time, as everyone was starting to get CD units with their PC’s ) with Mr Gabriel’s great Video rammed on it.

Priceless classic by a genius. Try and pretend it doesn’t tickle you

Here’s a fun one (but not for the squeamish):

Warning. The following material may be too stimulating for some viewers.
This is my second favorite, for pure fun.
Who doesn’t love metal and gratuitous puppet violence?
I listen to like, 50% baroque chamber music these days, I swear.

No response, doctor!

Very well. We’ll increase the voltage by showing some skin in the preview.

(rubs paddles together again) Clear!

The music isn’t my style and rather predictable, but I watched it for some reason or another.

We’ve got a pulse, but this topic is still on life support!

Maybe some boom in the room?

This actually a really decent recording on CD. I was shocked. Pretty dynamic and punchy. Best sounding metal album of 2020 that I’ve found.

OK, I’ll play, although I’m not sure what the rules are.

Here’s one of the first videos I remember enjoying: Garden Party by Marillion, from 1983. It’s seems very anti-monarchy when I watch it now, which I didn’t understand back in the day.

The first time I head this song was when they played this “live” on Top Of The Pops, and when it came time to sing “I’m miming” (which was on the BBC-approved version instead of the more raunchy “I’m f###ing” in the album version), Fish closed his mouth and mimed instead, presumably to show his contempt for the BBC. My teenage brain thought this was very clever, and I bought the album, Script For a Jester’s Tear, the next day, as a show of support. I’d never heard early Genesis at that point, so I thought they were very original, compared to the pop I was hearing on the radio in 1983. Originality be damned, this is still a great song and a great video.
