100 Greatest Music Videos | NME.COM Ever since the dawn of MTV made the possibilities and influence of music videos seem infinite, what used to be an extra promotional tool has become a veritable art-form in itself. From Michael Jackson's innovative 'Thriller' epic to Blur's heartwarming milk carton movie for 'Coffee & TV' and MIA's more recent, controversial promo for 'Born Free', the music video has come into a life of its own. Here, we celebrate 100 of the best: how many have you seen? Released: 1982 Director: Steve Barron Just because; the moonwalk is still ruddy amazing nearly 30 years after the fact. Released: 2007 Director: Ace Norton Seemingly your typical tits and ass dance video, and then it turns into something much more sinister and thought provoking half way through.

Released: 2010 Director: Wendy Morgan A lesson in economy.
Vispo ~ Langu(im)age: interactive, visual, and sound poetry by Jim Andrews Fantasy Art & Illustration by Cynthia Sheppard, Book, RPG Painti Microsoft’s vision of the mobile future is astounding (video) A new video created by Microsoft shows how the company imagines technology will progress in the future, with mobile devices and interactive touch screens playing an even bigger role in our lives. The 6-minute video, titled “Productivity Future Vision (2011),” is a sequel to a similarly themed video from 2009 with the same title. Each video shows hows technology adds value and real-time information to help us communicate, pursue projects and do business. Not only are the videos insightful but they’re just plain cool. The new video includes several ideas we’ve seen recently, such as small touch-screen phones that relay incredible amount of information two ways, a Siri-like helper that’s activated by voice and touch screens on things like refrigerators and office-focused displays. Many different concepts are on display as the video shifts from person to person, and the scenes connect in one world-spanning story. Watch the amazing full video below:
