Michel Gondry's Top 25 Favorite Music Videos

Entertainment Weekly recently grew a brain and decided to ask directorial genius Michel Gondry to make a list of his 25 favorite music videos of all time. Yah!

The eccentric French-born director is easily one of the most prolific and innovative music video directors of all-time, so it’s interesting to see a list of music videos that have inspired him over the years. It’s also nice to see that he throws in a few of his own classics as well.

He offers his picks of the best videos of the last 25 years, in no particular order...
•    Michael Jackson - ''Billie Jean'' (1983)
•    Peter Gabriel - 'Sledgehammer'' (1986)
•    Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Give It Away'' (1991)
•    Beastie Boys - ''Sabotage'' (1994)
•    Björk - "It's Oh So Quiet'' (1995)
•    Herbie Hancock - "Rockit'' (1983)
•    Jean-Luc Ponty - "Individual Choice" (1983)
•    Talking Heads - "Burning Down the House" (1983)
•    Téléphone - "Un Autre Monde" (1984)
•    The Cure - "Close to Me" (1985)
•    New Order - "Perfect Kiss" (1985)
•    Beastie Boys - "Fight for Your Right to Party" (1986)
•    Run DMC (Feat. Aerosmith) - "'Walk this Way" (1986)
•    Paul Simon - "You Can Call Me Al" (1986)
•    Michael Jackson - "Leave Me Alone" (1987)
•    Madonna - "Like a Prayer" (1989)
•    Tone Loc - "Wild Thing" (1989)
•    Young MC - "Bust a Move" (1989)
•    Massive Attack - "Unfinished Sympathy" (1991)
•    Lenny Kravitz - "Are You Gonna Go My Way?" (1993)
•    Jamiroquai - "Virtual Insanity" (1996)
•    The Pharcyde - "Drop" (1996)
•    Aphex Twin - "Come to Daddy" (1997)
•    Devendra Banhart, ''A Ribbon'' (2004)
•    R. Kelly, ''Trapped in the Closet'' (2005)

You gotta love that ''Trapped in the Closet'' made it on this list. The fact that an offbeat director like Gondry can see great things in an R. Kelly as well as Lauri Faggioni’s ''A Ribbon'' is pretty amazing. Just trying to disagree with anything on this list makes my head hurt.
