The Tuesday DiScussion: Your favourite music videos of the past six years
There was a slight smell of urine around the DiSopolis last week when MTV2 got back to us to say, "Yeah, of course fellas, you can celebrate the anniversary of your wonderful website by picking your favourite videos of the past six years for 120 Minutes." Somewhat understandably, we wet our boxers with excitement.
Following a smelly few hours in the pub exlaiming "Wow, we can dump that band's music on the ears and eyes of an unsuspecting audience!" and "OH EM GEEE... that video was amazing!", we began to wonder just what makes a certain video so much greater than so many others. We soon reached a point where there weren't enough suggestions on the table to fill two hours: obviously lots of our favourite songs weren’t released as singles, and many of the singles we love don’t have videos as such, as making one wasn’t a commercially viable project, or something. Also, this is web 2.0 so we didn't wanna keep all the fun to ourselves, like some crazed dictators of taste.
So we're compiling a phat list of videos we would like shown, especially ones you'd almost never see. What we'd like is for you to suggest some of your favourite videos of the past six years (with links to youtube.com or Google Video, if you can find them) and say why you like it. Why? Because we'll be running quotes from you lovely people across the screen when our selections are broadcast.
Here’s five videos we heart that are rather likely to make our two-hour show...
We've shown you some of our choices, so now DiScuss yours! Remember to post links wherever possible, too!
