Hey guys, I am starting a music video illustration project called "Floating Island Videos." I'd like to know what your favourite music videos are. Thanks for your help in advance.

Let's make a long list!

I'll start:

Favourite is Guns n' Roses - Paradise City. Really captures the excitement of a great rock band in action.

Also love Foo Fighters - Back and Forth, no particular reason, just always makes me smile

Happy by Leona Lewis.

The twist in the storyline made me cry a few times.

I like a bit of animation, puppets or clay.

And Christopher Walken dancing can only be good.

My most favorite video is the video that was made for the song named "For You" from my most favorite singer James Otto.

God bless you and him always!!!

Music videos are best when they're doing something innovative with the medium. Nothing more boring than just watching a band or artist sing the song to camera (with notable exceptions like Addicted To Love...)

Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
Often quoted as groundbreaking. Not the first use of stop-motion photography in a video but still very cleverly done

Radiohead - Street Spirit
The use of ultra-slow motion complemented the melancholy in the song perfectly

New Order - True Faith
The use of quirky costumes and choreography make this a very memorable video

Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence
Really difficult to pick out one Anton Corbijn video because he's a real master but this is one of my favourites

Beastie Boys - Sabotage
Foo Fighters - Everlong
Michael Jackson - Thriller
Stuck these three together because they're "homage" videos and all great examples of the fun you can have in a few minutes of video time

A-Ha - Take On Me
Groundbreaking for its time and still a great video.

Aphex Twin - Come To Daddy
UNKLE - Rabbit in Your Headlights
Nine Inch Nails - Closer
The power of the pop video to be truly disturbing

Sinead O'Connor - Nothing Compares 2U
Of all the examples of the "close-up face singing to camera" video this is probably the best

Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Two Tribes
At the height of 80s nuclear tension FGTH make a video of a punch-up between the presidents of the US and USSR. Sublime.

Tool - Schism
Tool's videos are often a blend of live action and stop-motion animation (created by band member Adam Jones). This is probably my favourite example. Fascinating and creepy

I could go on all day but had better stop for now.

Both similar for the fantastic editing.

My absolute favourite is Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel but it's already been mentioned.
