Best music video ever.

Post by AstroDan » Tue Jun 16, 2009 6:11 pm

Okay - it's (no longer) Coldplay.

Here's the film clip from the intro to Ghost World. It's better.

you totally tricked us into clicking on the thread by not mentioning coldplay.

but that was pretty good. the roadie righting the cymbal was a nice touch.

best video ever though? c'mon.

Oh man, I grew up on that DLR video.

The last video made me sad.

OK, thats 3 minutes of my life I wont get back. I couldn't make it through the whole thing. Sounds like every repetitive Coldplay song I ever heard. ....funny sounds just like the last Coldplay song I tried to listen to several years ago...

Every year I have a best video ever thread and every year someone trumps me with the Motorhead video.

That teenager looked like she was in her forties.

Meh. I would like Coldplay better if they were Big Country.

And that video is trying too hard.

Not even the best Coldplay vid. I think this is (and not coincidentally, their best song).

Note: I'm neutral about Coldplay, not much to like, not much to hate.

You guys are harsh. I think it's adorable - like a kitten with a human name. Like Josh the Kitten.
