fuzzy bad feet

Recently, C4 asked me to list a bunch of my favourite music videos. I thought I'd share some of my picks...

Eddie Murphy - Party All The Time

Engineers had it good in the 80s. Box office mega-stars would rock up, slap hands with the entourage and record dance jams in one take. If only every producer acted like Rick James in the studio, throwing the music sheet in the air and running in on the session for an impromptu cameo.

Michael Jackson - Smooth Criminal

Everyone wanted to be Michael Jackson at some point. Though Moonwalker was actually a bit of deranged movie, everyone I know had a vhs of it for this scene. MJ let off shots from a tommy gun, smashed a pool ball and leaned like a muthafucker. LOL at the orgy-sounds scene though.

The Notorious B.I.G - Mo Money Mo Problems

This remains my favourite video. Not the typically praised Hype Williams clip, but also at the top of the pile. Shiny suits, exploding money, zero-gravity rooms, Riddick Bowe... What else do you need?

Stardust - Music Sounds Better With You

Kid builds plane. Kid watches shiny-silver-music-clip-guys. Shiny-silver-music-clip-guys catch plane in clouds. Cool.

Outkast - B.O.B

This is the best opening to a clip ever. Andre getting chased by hundreds of 9 year olds. The psychedelic colours fit the madness of the song and his verse was so ill it made two of them flip downhill. Mean.
