One of the all-time classics. I wish I could find a higher-def version of it.

One of the best from the 90s:

Duran Duran's "The Reflex"

by Anonymousreply 805/16/2013

The very low-tech (even for its day)...

"Cry" from Godley & Creme

The Michael Jackson "Black & White" video significantly advanced the morphing technique years later.

Another great one from the 90s:

Back in '83 I thought Total Eclipse of the Heart was the best music video ever. I still haven't changed my mind.

Art of Noise - "Close (To The Edit)"

I have no fucking idea what that video is saying, if anything. It's definitely weird, a little bit freaky, and I think it's fantastic.

Wild Boys and Total Eclipse were two of three most homoerotic things I'd seen back in The Time Before The Internet. This one made up the third part of the trio. Seems so lame now but at the time...

If we're talking homoerotic videos from the 80s... I mean, does it get more so than this...

See, a great video doesn't need to be posted. You just never forget. Chris Isaak. Wicked Games. 'Nuff said.

Of the Duran Duran videos, I always liked "Rio" for the guys in speedos on the boat...

All-time favorite, though, still after all these years: Fleetwood Mac, "Gypsy"--

Nice thread, OP. And Imma let you finish, but Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.

by Anonymousreply 2605/17/2013

well, not to bring in the nightmares but nothing really tops this in terms of visceral impact.

Heaven 17, "Let Me Go," but I couldn't find a clip.

Not YouTube, but here's the video for "Let Me Go" from Heaven 17...

I love the band, but this was their only good video. Most of their videos sucked.

Probably my favorite Madonna video: "Oh Father"

Another Duran Duran one: "Is There Something I Should Know"

R15 Bruno the judge from Dancing with the Stars is a dancer in that Vid.

Duran Duran had GREAT vids esp from the Rio album.

INXS did some good ones too:

Sounds like Duran Duran owns this thread.

"Call Me Mr. Telephone" by Cheyne, because it's so cheesy and I love the gay boi dancing like he's so into it. It is a fun jam by the recently deceased Madonna-producer Mark Kamins.

I second Smells like teen spirit. Simple and to the point.

"Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "Wild Boys" are two amazing videos. In no small part due to the homoeroticism :-)

Weezer - Buddy Holly

For those who loved "Total Eclipse...", have you ever seen the literal version?

(The original appears to have been removed from YouTube [why?!], so this will have to do.)
