TFI Friday?

Can't really think of a superlative example right now, but I would say that Madonna's American Life video is a rare example of where the vid enhances appreciation of the song (at least for me). That would be, of course, if she hadn't gone all prissy and bowed down to pressure to cancel the proper video following moaning about insensitivity to 'our troops'

a great video really does help elevate a good song into something magnificent......actually, it doesn't necessarily have to be a particularly good video, just a captivating video. The last one I could think of was Gotye's STIUTK.

My most favorite video is the one that was made for the song named "For You" from my most favorite singer, James Otto. Go here to check it out.

God bless you and him always!!!

It's hard to beat The Verve's Bitter Sweet Symphony..the video only enhances the basic message of the song.

Also love Blur's The Universal and To the End although they are both homages to favourite movies.

That is a very good example and it reminds me of Massive Attack's Unfinished Sympathy.

Yes, fab song and appropriate video...are video makers getting a bit lazy these days? Or has the music diminished a little?

Alright by Supergrass and Common People by Pulp. Whenever I think of those bands, it's these videos that pop into my mind. I've always liked the video to Charmless Man by Blur as well.
