Cool blog mention over on Entertainment Weekly’s POPWATCH! They’ve pitted the Boys against Pete Wentz in compiling a list of Top 5 all-time favorite music videos.
Commenters seem to be keening toward the Guys’ camp, too, in terms of who they think did a better job.
Maybe our favorite underdogs are really themselves finally becoming the life of the pop-rock party and winning everyone over? We fans can dream!
Their video picks…after the jump!
1. a-ha’s “Take on Me”: We found this on YouTube and loved it so much we added the song to our set list on our last tour.
2. Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”: This video set the standard for so many things — production, choreography, makeup, and wardrobe. It’s iconic. [Ed – FULL vid and short film here – it seems MJ is not fond of embedding!]
3. Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage”: We love the retro look in this video, and all the action scenes are awesome.
4. Fall Out Boy’s “Dance Dance”: The homecoming theme is cool… especially when the underdogs become the life of the party and win everyone over.
5. Chris Brown’s “Forever”: Chris is an amazing dancer. When critics were labeling him the new Michael Jackson, we took notice. [Ed – Who also emulates MJ in his apparent hatred of embedding (it is your friend, people)! Full video HERE!]
