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.

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? [more inside]

Who performed these music videos? Years ago I watched MTV in the early morning when they aired all the zany gainaxy music videos. Three of those stand out in memory for their sheer surreal nexus currency. [more inside]

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]

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]

For my latest video project, I'm creating a presentation that's science themed (think sexy girl in lab coat performing science experiments with a catchy music track). I'm looking for inspiration but my youtube and vimeo search fu can't seem to find anything. [more inside]

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?

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?
