Video of the year 2008: (tie) “Flashing Lights” Kanye West & “Who’s Gonna Save My Soul” Gnarls Barkley

This is what it feels like when someone you love breaks your heart.

This is another way of articulating what it feels like when somone you love breaks your heart.

Video of the year 2007: “1234” Feist

Music Videos of the Decade (2000-2009)

One for the iPod generation. I was going to choose NIN’s “Survivalism” but seeing as many of my choices are dark and disturbing, I thought I’d offer a bit of light and colour. I’m not all doom and gloom, ya know.

p.s. As a fellow Melbournian, I would like to note that this song was largely written by New Buffalo’s Sally Seltman.

According to the band, this video provides an illustration of what a day in the life of someone working in the music industry can be like.

Video of the year 2004: “99 Problems” Jay-Z

Ow.

Video of the year 2003: “Untitled #1 (vaka)” Sigur Ros.

Music Videos of the Decade (2000-2009)

All Sigur Ros videos will have you weeping at the great fragility, beauty and sadness of life if you let them tug at your heartstrings (the way they do their best to do). But this one, showing a post-apocalyptic world in which children get ready to go outside and play, totally wins me over.

The moral: children are our future so save the planet, man.
