Out of thousands...

Bonus clip: Warrant "Cherry Pie" 8) :D

10. Natasha Bedingfield "These Words"/White Stripes "Fell In Love With A Girl" (tie)

"These Words" is refreshing from other 2000's pop videos with it's scenery, walking boom boxes, and that it doesn't take place at a club like other videos.

"Fell In Love With A Girl" features great Lego animation.

9. Michael Jackson "Smooth Criminal" (short version)

... a homage to the 1930's and features his best choreography

8. Weezer "Buddy Holly"

...great effects that makes the band appear if they're in an actual episode of "Happy Days"

7. Duran Duran "Rio"

...the video defines new wave with the painted women and visual effects

6. Tone Loc "Wild Thing"

... Just because it's  a cheap video ($500) doesn't mean it's bad.

5. Madonna "Material Girl"

...homage to Marilyn Monroe

4. Soundgarden "Black Hole Sun"

...surreal imagery and great effects

3. INXS "Need You Tonight/Mediate"

...1988 VMA video of the year. Second half pays homage to Bob Dylan's "Subterraen Homesick Blues".

2. Debbie Gibson "Foolish Beat" 
Beautifully done classic and Deb's first #1 hit ballad, which made her the youngest artist to write, produce, & record a #1 hit. The video also shows her acting, which she was actually crying in one scene. Should've been nominated for a Video Music Award in 1988.

1. a-ha "Take On Me"

Great blend of rotoscope animation and live action

Not sure if these are my favourite of all-time, but I put together a random bunch that stand out.  #1 however is my favourite video of all time (until something comes along that tops it)

10 | Singin' in the Rain - Mint Royale <2005>
Animation + Live action.  Always cool!

9 | Black and Gold - Sam Sparro <2008>
I've never seen a video more suit a song than I did in this one

8 | Breath - Swollen Members featuring Nelly Furtado <2001>
Nelly first showed her sexy side in this video.  The dark gothic feel was great!

7 | Can't Stand Still - The Extras <1985>
The greatest animated music video ever!

6 | There Was A Time - One to One <1985>
The mirrored elevator is still awesome!

5 | Peter Gunn - Art of Noise featuring Duane Eddy <1986>
A great hommage to the classic detective!

4 | Around the World - Daft Punk <1997>
The choreography was very well done!

3 | Be Wthout You (Hands Up) - WiFi featuring Melanie M <2007>
The blinking glares add a cool effect!

2 | Stand Back - Linus Loves featuring Sam Obernik <2003>
What do you get when you cross Stevie Nicks with Footloose?  One of the best hommages to the 80s ever!

1 | Sexual Healing - Alibi vs. Rockefeller <2007>
Sex sells.  I'm sold!
