S - "Sweetest Thing" by U2. The most elaborate public apology ever filmed. Like Bono, the video is so radical it has its own stand on the divisive political issues of the day. And I recently decided the Boyzone cameo was necessary. Runners-up: "She's The One" (Robbie Williams proves The Cutting Edge is 96 minutes too long); "Save Tonight" (Eagle-Eye Cherry proves Alanis Morissette's multiple personality disorder is catching); and "Sour Girl" (Stone Temple Pilots' Scott Weiland proves only Robert Smith looks good in guyliner).
T - "Torn" by Natalie Imbruglia. A cutie from Down Under sings while the set is torn down around her. How's that for song interpretation? Runner-up: "Try Again" by Aaliyah. A cutie who's now six feet under gets an assist from Jet Li.
U - "Unpretty" by TLC. Left Eye looks so cute signing no one would guess she once burned a boyfriend's house down. Minus points for the graphic depiction of breast implant surgery, though. Runner-up: "Under The Bridge" by Red Hot Chili Peppers. Not very creative but you can amuse yourself guessing who among the people Anthony Kiedis passes on the street are Filipinos.
V - "Virtual Insanity" by Jamiroquai. Jay Kay's got the few remaining slick moves outside of Usher videos. And for the last time, kids, it's the walls that are moving. Runner-up: "Vindicated" by Dashboard Confessional. The comic book effect has been done before but here it's well-executed.
W - "Wishful Thinking" by Duncan Sheik. One can never go wrong with Gwyneth Paltrow clips. I wonder why her husband hasn't featured her in his band's videos? Make Trade Fair would photograph well on her cheekbone. Runner-up: "Weather Report" by Cynthia Alexander. Aren't her ears cute?
X - __________. Knock yourselves out.
Y - "Yellow" by Coldplay. Simple pero rock.
Z - "Zephyr Song, The" by Red Hot Chili Peppers. I had to put it this in—it shows you how the world would look like if you drop acid. It is also possible this video triggers epileptic seizures.
