Time to express appreciation for an often overlooked form of expressive cinema: the music video. As you can see, I’ve been watching them a long-arse time. These are my current 100 favourites that I think everyone should see. They’ve all inspired my imagination & creative work in innumerable ways.

my picks are always subject to change, so if you feel I’ve made any glaring sins of omission, please let me know as soon as possible. I had to leave off many greats to make room for others.
