Music videos 36

28 Busta Rhymes “Gimme Some More”
Best fish-eye ever. Busta Rhymes is a genius, and I don't offer that praise lightly. This is a top, top class video. Yes, that's a sample of the Psycho theme, and yes, the video is supposed to end that suddenly.

27 Michael Jackson: “Thriller”
What more is there to say about this one? Forget about the fact that Jackson is a damaged, deranged, disturbed, predatory freak. Actually, don't forget that, as it makes the video even better. One of the early true great music videos, it's worth remembering that this song helped get black music on MTV. The music is brilliant, the story is brilliant, the dancing is brilliant (everybody knows how to do the zombie hand dance), Vincent Price's "rap" is brilliant. It's brilliant.
