Music videos 15

72 OutKast: “Hey Ya”
Yes, it was over-played more than almost any other song this decade. But that was no reason for the world to fall out of love with it. A couple of years on, people are beginning to come to their senses and acknowledge Hey Ya as the all-time classic that it surely is. Amazing pop song, excellently-executed video.

71 Lisa Loeb: “Stay (I Missed You)”
I don't really understand what this is doing here, so I'll just quote Stylus Magazine: "With some songs, it seems like there’s only one video that could possibly have been made for it. Appropriate for a song that never pauses even for a breath, the video for Lisa Loeb’s “Stay (I Missed You)” features little but an uninterrupted tracking shot of Lisa walking around her bare and desolate apartment. It feels so real and unforced that watching it almost seems intrusive—this actually seems like it could be Lisa just thinking out loud while pacing around her apartment". The video was directed by Ethan Hawke.
