Robot High School

Searching for inspiration for 2007, I asked other bloggers over at blogcatalog to suggest favourite music videos. They came up with some absolute gems, not all of which will embed. The list included many of my own favourites plus several incredible films I'd not come across - this demonstrates just how much variety and originality there has been in the music video genre.

With thanks for all the suggestions - there were far too many to include here! Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson were popular amongst bloggers and in addition to the works of art above we shared some comedy videos including our favourite Literal Videos.

In case you haven't, check Massive Attack videos... They are better than most films I've seen :)

Risingson, Inertia Creeps. Falde Flags is a minimalism masterpiece.
