    Oooh! Now that is a challenge! And a great choice, @Nick! I love that version.

    (note to self: be nice this week, Slightly. Be nice!)

    I am going to be very staid, but this video had a huge impact on me, way back when. Still a fantastic song, but the first time I encountered stereo in a video.

    Bohemian Rhapsody.

        The Muppets are just effing brilliant, such consistency over many decades, I laughed when Beaker did his “Me,me,me, me” part!

        I mean most of their videos are mad. Check out Frank Sinatra for example. But this one is just so blooming entertaining…..

        There’s an awful lot of weird vids out there that aren’t any good. I love an interesting vid and the Avalanches do that for me with this one!

            Ms Channing is one of the world’s great actresses that never got the recognition she deserved :)

            Glad you enjoyed, V :)

    Some of the usual suspects will include a lot of Whacko Jacko efforts, Thriller being the most obvious.
    Also, Fatboy Slim has had some brilliant videos, the best being Praise You and Weapon of Choice.

    Recently, Childish Gambino has tore it all up. The shock factor in This Is America is outstanding. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VYOjWnS4cMY

    My choice is Tame Impala’s, The Less I Know The Better from a few years ago, really funny stuff and a cracking tune.

    Massive Attack, Unfinished Sympathy. Utterly original at the time, and hugely influential since. A great idea brilliantly realised in one shot. Great song, with the fabulous Shara Nelson stealing the show. Vividly remember being blown away the first time I saw/heard it. Timeless.

    What’s it all about? Maybe something about how our bodies play host to countless microorganisms? Is it about sex? A metaphor about the interconnectedness of all living things? Someone joked in the comment section “and that’s how gay couples adopt children” (although I think the video is probably meant to depict a man and woman)

    The wonderfully on-point and allusive verbal whirlwind of Bob Dylan’s Subterranean Homesick Blues. Oft imitated but never bettered.

    The footage as taken from the brilliant DA Pennebaker documentary Don’t Look Back and subsequently recast as a video. Bonus marks for featuring beat poet Allen Ginsberg.

      I am not a fan of Sinead, but that has to rate as one of the most incredible performances of all time!

    Great question and I think you’ve probably chosen the best answer. So many from Radiohead or Massive Attack but…

    I’ll go with George Michael’s Freedom ‘90, gorgeously shot, groundbreaking by not featuring the artist and single-handedly inventing the concept of the supermodel.
