Take Me Out Franz Ferdinand

Glasgow pop-rockers Franz Ferdinand (named after the grand duke of the same name) had a huge global hit with this second release of their self-titled debut album. Directed by Jonas Odell the animated clip is a nod to the crazy animated work of Monty Python's Terry Gilliam as well as 1930's musical director Busby Berkley. A ripping original clip for one of the catchiest pop/rock songs of the decade - enjoy

Losing My Religion - REM
REM - Losing My Religion

Breaking with their rules of never having the band lipsync along to a video REM decided to let director Tarsem Singh loose with his ideas about art and religion and the connection between to make this beautiful video. Although the band had been around for a while and well known in the indie scene this was their breakout song/video that saw them become mainstream (and giving the world the most famous Mandolin break ever). A wonderful music video inspired by the films of Tarkovsky and the paintings of Caravaggio.

239. Respectable - Mel and Kim

October 17th 2009 06:56
Respectable Mel and Kim
Mel and Kim - Respectable

This clip is a throw back to 1987 and it is the product of the Stock,Aitken and Waterman production house that gave us Rick Astley and Kylie Minogue. This Jamaican born sister duo of Mel and Kim Appleby was one of the better things that they did. They burst onto the scene with this memorable song that went number one around the world but just when they looked set for international stardom the dream ended with the tragic death of Mel to cancer. At least we will have this clip to remember them by

The original version of this song comes from 1959 and was a hit for Cliff Richard and The Shadows. The song was written by Lionel Bart (who wrote the music for the musical Oliver!). This clip was made in 1986 with The Young Ones - a comedy group in England based around Rik Mayall, Adrian Edmondson and was written by a young Ben Elton. One of the characters of ridicule on the show was indeed Cliff Richard (the Young Ones being the title of a Cliff Richard song). They got together nd made this cover of his original song. The end result is very memorable and very very funny. Enjoy

This radical cover of the classic Cole Porter song from High Society (which featured Frank Sinarta and Bing Crosby in the film original) was recorded for the Red Hot and Blue album - which was both a tribute to Cole Porter and a fund raiser for AIDS related charities. Iggy and Debbie take on the famous personas from the film but also put their own special stamp on it. There should be more covers like this!!! Alex Cox's direction is assured and perfect. Enjoy.

144. Shout To The Top - Style Council

December 13th 2008 06:58

One of my favourite songs of the 80's - Paul Weller caught in between his early punk years with the Jam and his later solo career in the 90's and beyond. This song features him singing in a jacket only he could make cool. The song is a ripper and will have you dancing around the room guaranteed - even if you are hearing it for the first time. Enjoy

Another great clip by Samuel Bayer (he of Nirvana's Smells Like Teen Spirit fame). This time with Californian hippy rockers Blind Melon. The clip stars Heather DeLoach as the "Bee Girl" — a young tap dancer wearing a homemade bee costume and large glasses, modeled after the Blind Melon album's cover: It opens on the girl's tap routine; the audience responds with laughter, and the girl runs off stage in tears. As the song plays, she wanders through a city, stopping to perform her dance for whoever will watch. Ultimately — at the point in the song where the word "escape" is repeated — she peeks through a gate, astonished, then runs through it to join a group of "bee people" of all shapes and sizes dancing joyfully in a green field. (from wikipedia).

This clip is all about the joy of life and both the wonderful song and mesmerising (and cute) visuals make that message sing out with so much heart and spirit (maybe the pre teen spirit). Enjoy.

133. Rock The Casbah - The Clash

December 9th 2008 03:45

One of my favourite bands doing one of my favourite songs. Yes the clip for Rock the Casbah might be simple but it is effective and does a wonderful job relaying the fun of this great song. Filmed near the oil wells of Austin Texas this song is true to it's middle eastern/north African subject matter (I think it has something to do with the Algerian Wars of the 1950's and 60's) Hope you enjoy dancing around the room to this awesome song

113. Sweet Child O Mine - Guns N Roses -

November 25th 2008 03:03

One of the great guitar riffs of all time apparently started as a joke between guitarist slash and the drummer Steve Adler. A little finger exercise that Slash used to warm up - then bass plaver Izzy added some chords and hey presto. A simple clip but the song really doesn't need any flashy video work to carry it off. It's just the band - but a rock and roll gold star moment. Enjoy

For class rock we have you covered at

An epic clip for an epic song.This nine minute extravaganza from directed Andrew Morahan (of Highlander II and The Sorcerer fame) features the filmed wedding of Guns N' Roses front man Axl Rose to his then girlfriend Stephanie Seymour. The lavish production values, and outrageous swirling helicopter shots during guitarist Slash's bit solo make for one of the memorable music videos ever (the most requested on MTV) and a truly fitting tribute to the over the top excesses of the late eighties/early nineties (the song and clip came out in 1992). So here it is in all of it's nine minute glory - enjoy.

The clip that made the band - exquisitely shot, lit and composed = the Cure front man Robert Smith obviously got what the director was trying to do an put in a breathtaking performance that came to symbolize everything about the band. The amazing cave scenary adds to the near perfect video - one of my favourites - hope you enjoy

Sensational clip for the U2 song that showed their ability to move with the times. Shot at Charles De Galle airport in Paris by Swedish music video whiz Jonas Akerlund it pushes boundaries and gets some amazing shots in. Enjoy it

What started off as an avant garde punk art school band turned into one of the world's most loved rock acts. This great song is produced by the legendary Brian Eno and his flourishes can be heard.

Great song by one of grunge's great survivors - Green Day. Showing they can do mellow ballad as well as the hard rocking stuff this track off the wonderful American Idiot album shows their true versatility as a band. A great clip to go with the song directed by Samuel Bayer
