Mixtapes for Hookers

Seen Your Video

Pitchfork recently published their list of the Top 50 Music Videos of the 2000s.  There’s some old favorites (Bat For Lashes’ What’s A Girl To Do, #7; The Avalanches’ Frontier Psychiatrist at #19; Vitalic’s Poney Pt. 1 at #36), some really good ones I hadn’t seen before (like #49, Escort’s Muppet-y All Through The Night), and some whose appeal is completely lost on me (that stupid video for Gnarls Barkley’s Who’s Gonna Save My Soul, #43, Justice’s completely irritating DANCE and Weezer’s Pork and Beans both in the top 10).

But, of course, they neglected to include some of my favorites.  So, just off the top of my head, eleven really great videos from the past 10 years, starting with the Electric Six’s manically silly Danger! High Voltage! from 2004.

Christina Aguilera, Candyman (2006)

Air, Playground Love (2000)

David Bowie, New Killer Star (2003)

Missy Elliott, Gossip Folks (2003)

In-Grid, Tu Es Foutu (2003)

The Knife, Pass This On (2004)

The Last Shadow Puppets, The Age of the Understatement (2008)

Gruff Rhys, Candylion (2007)

Solange, T.O.N.Y. (2008)

Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Y Control (2004)
