I cento migliori video di sempre secondo NME

Per celebrare il lancio del suo nuovo sito NMEVideo.com, NME ha messo insieme una lista dei 100 più grandi video di tutti i tempi. Alcune scelte obbligate, come "Thriller" di Michael Jackson, "Sledgehammer" di Peter Gabriel, "Money For Nothing" dei Dire Straits e "Take On Me" degli A-ha: video che hanno rivoluzionato l'idea di immagini in movimento applicate a un brano.

Un percorso che è spesso andato di pari passo con le tecnologie disponibili, cosa che lo staff di NME evidenzia molto bene mettendo in lista anche brani non proprio famosissimi e relativi clip. Tutti titoli dagli anni '90 in top 10 (tranne il primo, che è una - piacevole - sorpresa), record di presenze a Spike Jonze con ben otto video inclusi nella lista e alcune mancanze che faranno un po' discutere come "Losing My Religion" degli R.E.M. e "Smells Like Teen Spirit" dei Nirvana. Voi cosa ne pensate? La lista completa è dopo il salto, con i video della top 5.
