Gondry’s Music Video Picks

July 1, 2008

While not everybody likes Gondry’s style- have a look here for his 25 favourite music videos (not the ones he has done himself obviously!).  I do quite like most of his work so I think it is rather interesting to have a glimpse into his head- there is a little blurb along with each of the picks that explains why he thinks it has artistic merit.

No surprise with some like Gabriel’s Sledgehammer, Bjork’s It’s Oh So Quiet..and a few others that Spike Jonze has done.   There are some surprises there though and quite a diverse range of artists- Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie boys, Talking Heads, Aerosmith, Paul Simon, Aphex Twin, and Devendra Banhart.  It’s not often that you would see those artists all in one list but I suppose this is Gondry after all!
