21 Totally Awesome Music Videos

From time to time, I spend some time on YouTube looking at the funniest and cheesiest music videos I can find. I also find some totally awesome music videos now and then. Here is a compilation I put together of some of the best (and worst) music videos from the past 30 years or so.

Since the whole copyright thing is going on over at YouTube, I had to link to some of the videos since a few companies (you know who) blocked embedding of their videos. Enjoy!

Men Without Hats – Safety Dance

I love this video for reasons I do not know..

Right Said Fred – I’m Too Sexy

This video is cheesy enough that hit had to be included in this list.

Michael Jackson – Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough

This video made the list because…I don’t know. The sweet backgrounds perhaps?

David Hasselhof – Hooked On A Feeling

It’s very possible that this is the worst music video ever created.

Devo Whip It

This might be the best music video ever created…lol

MC Hammer – Can’t Touch This

I remember this from when I was little. Who can forget those parachute pants.

Corey Hart – Sunglasses At Night

Another cheesy video that makes me saw “wow.”

Lionel Richie – All Night Long

Well the song is pretty sweet, but the video fails in many ways.

Robert Palmer – Addicted To Love

Another video I remember seeing back in the day.

Zlad Elektronik Supersonik

This may be a joke, but it’s still a kickass music video.

Vanilla Ice – Ice Ice Baby

Another nominee for being one of the worst videos of all time.

Midnight Oil – Beds Are Burning

How can we dance when our earth is turning? Do you know the answer? I sure don’t.

Dire Straits – Money For Nothing

The 3D animation in this video is brilliant. Not to mention it’s one of the best songs ever.

Men At Work – Land Down Under

This video is classic.

The Gap Band – You Dropped A Bomb on Me

Another great video featuring some awesome dance moves from the 80′s.

The Village People – YMCA

Does anyone else think the guy in black leather looks a lot like Mr. Slave from South Park?

Blind Melon – No Rain

This video instantly reminds me of the early 90′s.

Peter Gabriel – Sledgehammer

I have to admit, this is another classic video that kicks ass.

Tom Petty – Don’t Come Around Here No More

I have always loved Tom Petty’s videos, including this one.

Watch It Here

Fatboy Slim – Weapon Of Choice

Christopher Walken alone makes this video the greatest ever.

Wham – Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

Okay forget the videos I mentioned earlier as being the worst ever, this one wins hands down!

    It’s pretty hard to ever really nail a list of the top/best/most awesome…whatever, but this list…well, I think it’s pretty good. The only videos I think might be more awesome would be either Nine Inch Nails’ “Closer” or “Schism” or “Prison Sex” from Tool…oh, and the Johnny Cash cover of “Hurt”
