Top Ten Animated Music Videos

I grew up with MTV (way back when the "M" actually stood for Music), and, to this day, I'm still a big fan of music videos. Being an artist, I'm especially fond of animated music videos, so I decided to compile a list of my favorites.  Here are my Top Ten.  They run the gambit of animation types including traditional, digital, and stop-motion.  Hope you enjoy.

10.  Dire Straits - "Money for Nothing".  Today, the graphics seem a bit hokey, but when first released, the digital animation in this video was cutting edge.

9.  Starlight Mints - "Inside of Me".

8.  Ingrid Michaelson - "Maybe".  I love the way this video combines film and animated shadow puppetry.

7.  Land of Talk - "It's Okay". 

6.  White Stripes - "Fell In Love With a Girl".  Legos are awesome. Period.

5.  Fleet Foxes - "White Winter Hymnal".

4.  Ra Ra Riot - "Dying is Fine".

3.  Of Monsters and Men - "Little Talks".

2.  A-ha - "Take on Me".  This has been one of my all-time favorites for the past 20 years.

1.  Ramona Falls - "I Say Fever".  An absolutely amazing animation made with Adobe Premier.
