Everyone makes lists of their favorite things. Books, movies, songs, ho hum. How videos! Before we begin, I am going to note that my favorite literary genre is transgressive fiction. So that should tell you something about the disturbing nature of a lot of these embeds, if you choose to play them. I'm not going to write elaborate warnings for them, view at your own risk.

10. Nine Inch Nails, "Happiness in Slavery."

Although there are better NIN videos in terms of cinematography ("Perfect Drug"), music (most of them), and hotness ("Sin"!), you really can't beat the sentiment expressed by this one.

9. Peaches, "Fuck the Pain Away."

Sick, wrong, retro, and hilarious! What's not to like? (Did you know she used to be a teacher?)

8. Lauryn Hill, "Everything is Everything."

This makes a lot of people's favorite music video lists. Well, with good reason!

7. Radiohead, "Rabbit in Your Headlights."

What does it mean? What doesn't it mean?

6. CSS, "Music is My Hot Hot Sex"

Again, a case where they've done far better videos, but there's just something so eighties and bizarre about this one. Maybe it's how UNhot Lovefoxxx manages to be? She's tired of being sexy!

5. Peter Gabriel, "Steam."

Guh...wha? I hear you say. Well, this video holds a special place in my heart, because it's the first music video I ever saw. I was forbidden to watch TV as a child (which obviously helped keep me on the straight and narrow later in life, right?), but this was on a video of computer animation that we got from the library. It was, er, cutting edge. (Actually, as I was finding it on Youtube just now, I was impressed by how well it held up.)

Stay tuned for the top five!

P.S. If you want me to add you to my friends list, or re-add you, feel free to comment or email me, kay? I feel a little bad about the purge I just did, but it had to be done.
