Music videos 18

66 R.E.M.: “Imitation of Life”
This is an excellent and very underrated video. A snippet of events at a party is seen from multiple viewpoints using looped video. Really clever stuff from the director of the (also underrated in my opinion) recent film version of The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.

65 N.W.A.: “Straight Outta Compton”
I've slagged off some of the rap videos so far, but this is old-skool at its best. Quality stuff, and make sure you watch the video overdubbed with an amazing (I'm not being sarcastic) cover version by the folk singer Nina Gordon (which can be downloaded here).
