The Top Ten

1
A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
Mars makes the most powerful videos ever, what I like about they're videos is that they alway convey a certain massage. They definitely deserve the number one (and two) spot.
a great video, a great message. AWESOME {MARS IS COMING}

2Bad Girl - Madonna
All of Madonna's music videos are unique in their own way, and Bad Girl is not Madonna's best song or music video. But the concept and execution and direction of the plot is applaudable.
I thought it was soundtrack - looks like a real movie. Brilliant Video!

Got a good value on this music video... Growing up w/ a mom that really so weak & can't stand on her own... She grew almost like her mom, realizing that in the end she does blame her mom for everything...

Such a sad storyline, but very powerful. My dad always watched it and he told me he wanted this for his funeral. Now I understand it may be from the dramatic effect of the music video. It's purely beautiful.
Slash can't find the ring hahaha... but seriously, it has a great story.

It's like a movie, and everything in the video expresses the meaning of the song as clearly as possible! It's an amazing video, which reminds me of a 4 minute soap opera! It's scandalous, sexy, stunning, and spot-on in terms of theme. This video appeals to everyone, and the lead singer is kinda sexy beyond words, which doesn't hurt. Words can't do him justice so watch the video now! It never fails to please people!
Unique song, and the video perfectly displayed the 1930's theme, and they went all out! Just a complete job well done!
