100 film clips of the last 20 years

This is MY list. Not the shit one that was on Video Hits a few weeks ago. Although it is inspired by it. Some of the songs on their list deserved to be there, but most did not. And I will admit that my list is probably lacking a few very current clips, but I havent seen them so :P.

Some of these clips are in there because they have to be, I may not like them, but the clip may capture a time perfectly. Some of the songs may not be great, but the clips were excellent. So on and so forth. And maybe the song was fantastic and that simply made the clip fantastic.

Dont try to argue with me on the songs I have in the list, but I am quite open to other suggestions. I cant remember every clip, so I may have just forgotten about it or something. Also, its not really in any order, numbering them 100-1 would just be too hard, but I may make a note of where abouts i think the clip would be in a proper 100.

100. Backtreet Boys - Just Want You to Know
99. Britney Spears - Toxic
98. Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
97. Snow - Informer
96. Garbage - Vow
95. Foo Fighters - Big me
94. Dee-lite - Groove is in the Heart
93. Presidents of the USA - Lump
92. Kylie - Come into My World
91. Hanson - Mmm Bop
90. Supergrass - Pumping on your Stereo
89. Shakira - Wherever, Whenever
88. Moby - Bodyrock
87. Hocus Pocus - Here's Johnny
86. Jamiroquai - Virtual insanity
85. Janet Jackson - Rythym Nation
84. Silverchair - Tomorrow
83. Prince - Cream
82. Red Hot Chilli Peppers - Dani California
81. Michael Jackson - Bad
80. OutKast - Hey Ya
79. Robert Palmer - Simply Irresistible
78. Smashing Pumpkins - 1979
77. Gwen Stefani - What You Waiting For?
76. Blink 182- All the Small Things
75. U2- With or Without You
74. Vanilla Ice - Ice Ice Baby

68. Michael Jackson - World Song
67. Fatboy Slim - Praise You
65. Pink - Stupid Girls

61. Janet Jackson - If
60. Faith No More - Easy
59. ACDC - Thunderstruck
58. Eminem - Just Lose It
57. Silverchair - Freak

Smashing Pumpkins - Bullet with Butterfly Wings
Backstreet Boys - Backstreets Back
Placebo - Pure Morning
REM - Losing My Religion
Madonna - Like a Prayer

Prodigy - Breathe
No Doubt - Just a Girl
Garbage - Cherry Lips

Dude. Tool. You're missing Tool.
Is this a list for the best film clips ever? Why is MMMBop there? Didn't they just randomly run around and fall over on their rollerskates? I don't understand it nor the song actually.

Anyway, this list needs more Bjork and more Chemical Brothers coz those crazy cats make some wicked clips.

yeah but it was so retarded and well random. Plus falling over on their rollerskates? Good times.

Its not clips that are like oh so cool it hurts stuff. Its just clips that .. like i said might capture a point in time, that i find rather amusing (eg BSB - Just want you to know, i dont like the song but the clip amused me).

And you cant just say oh needs more chemical brothers and bjork but OH MY GOD! i just remembered i wanted to put Its oh so quiet in there too. ANyways you cant just say that sort of thing without out actually offering suggestions.
I did offer suggestions. I'm not doing all the work for you :P

They both have a fantastic back catalogue of clips. Star Guitar is fucking genius. All Is Full Of Love is amazing.

I really loathe those stand around and play the instruments clips. If you gonna make a clip for a song it should be a visual extension of it's themes, kinda building it into something more or helping with the story telling.

Damn you for getting me started on this. *shakes fist*

And continuing on with hanson, that clip was number 1 for so fucking long.
Gah, I could never make such a list

I'm just so terrible at ranking my faves, too indecisive... mine would just be a list of no particular order

so credit to you for giving it a good shot, my list would probably be quite different also
you dont like my list?? Whats wrong with my list *gets all defensive* lol. *pets the list*

Gimme an idea of what yours would be like? I said to offer suggestions...

don't make me doooo iiit!!

Seriously I'm terrible at lists and top tens...tis part of the reason I avoid memes like the plague ;)
