Now that we have embedded YouTube I decree that we have a thread for sharing awesome music videos. At odds with this theme, I will start with a really stupid one:

This is a pretty dumb video all things considered but hell, I like it.

I'd never seen that Yes video before. And I'm wishing it had stayed that way.

The New Pornographers do recursion, and an excuse to listen to a fucking great song.

I'm not so big on the band or the song, but the longer you watch this video the more insane it becomes. I remember seeing it back in college at like 1 a.m. and I wondered if I was already dead and in hell.

I think a respectful nod should be given to some of Sloan's music videos from the 90s, as they perfectly encapsulate my teenage years:

I've always liked this late-era Michael Jackson video, after somebody here (was it JDS?) recommended it in another music video thread.

Well no, but it helps to be reminded that you haven't watched it in a few years all the same.

I always found it a little disappointing that the video chops up and reorders the segments of the song so indiscriminately. But I guess they were going for something much bigger than your average video.

I waffled on whether to put this here or What Song Is Stuck in Your Head, because damn if this song doesn't worm in there and never leave, but it's also pretty darn awesome so fuck it.

Any video directed by Shynola, though I'm partial to this one.

Michel Gondry's a known quantity these days, but I love love love the dark, threatening 90s vibe in this one. It's like everything that was ever actually cool about MTV wrapped up in one package.

It's a daft question, but seriously, I'm not getting something about how to embed videos with the shiny new Youtube function. Do we have a technical explanation somewhere for how to do it? I couldn't find it anywhere.

There isn't one, but if you quote a message with a video embedded in it so you can look at the code, then the mechanism is pretty easy to figure out. (Seriously it's easier for you to see than it is for me to flail around explaining it).

Hey, do you remember the music video in which Paula Abdul admits that, while she and an anthropomorphic cartoon cat don't have much in common, she still really enjoys having an adult sexual relationship with him?

I wonder how many furries look back on this music video as the defining moment that shaped their inclinations. It might be the Disney's Robin Hood of the '80s.
