Youtube music video suggestions - artists like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj?

I have a friend who wants to watch some new music videos. He has no access to the internet, but I do. Great! I can help out. Except we have very different tastes in music and he only gets as specific as "like Nicki." He also really likes Rihanna and Beyoncé's more beat-driven songs, La Fouine, and a lot of Nigerian popular music. Can you make suggestions for me? Preferably with links, because I'm on strictly metered internet and can't download a lot of videos to find the good ones.

Wanted: A Blog To Help Me Find Clever Music Videos

I like music videos that feature clever ideas, wittily executed, and I'm hoping to find a music video blog curated by somebody with similar taste. Some of videos I've enjoyed include Her Morning Elegance, Woke Up New, Bad M*therF*cker, and anything by Spike Jonze or Michel Gondry. What blogger (or tweeter) will help me find more videos I love?

Songs to sign along with!

I'm learning sign language, and I thought it'd be fun to practice by making music videos. I'm hearing, but I'd like my videos to be interesting even without sound. Know any suitable songs for this? [more inside]

Really, I'm just waiting for The Protomen to do this.

Music videos are a dime a dozen. However, it's pretty rare for an entire album to be made into a single video with a coherent narrative. What are some examples of this? [more inside]

Best Music Videos of the 00s.

The Directors Series is a neat collection of great music videos, ordered by director, but leans heavily towards the 90s. If you were putting together a similar collection of music videos for the 00s what directors and what videos would be essentials for it?

Workout music has been covered aplenty on this site. But what about inspiring music videos to workout to?

So when working out on a cross-trainer like this I usually watch some of my favorite TV shows on my Ipod Touch. Yeah, I know, gotta update to a bigger better stronger device soon ;-) To get me pumped up a little more or to make it through the last gruelling climb, I regularly switch to music videos. And now I wanted to query the hive mind for some fresh suggestions. For more see some examples below. [more inside]

Who was this band?

Help me remember a song, out around 1995 or 1996. It was by a rock band with a male singer. Haunting, sort of creepy voice. The thing I most remember was the music video. It featured a girl in her apartment, and a creepy/stalkerish but handsome guy going up the to her apartment. She answered the door, and then it ends up with a slow speed chase up to the roof, where I the music video ends in sort of a cliff hanger. It was a tall apartment building, with an elevator. The male singer was shown on screen in cut ins throughout the music video. I think the singer was shown to be in the elevator, but not interacting with the woman or her stalker. I can sort of remember one line of lyrics, sort of along the lines: I only sleep at night, surrounded by my lies. And for some reason I think the name of the band had the name of elements in it, but that might be totally spurious. Also, I think this was their only song that received much attention. Not much to go on, but who was it?
