Battle Of The Videos: Round 9

Discothèque is totally leaving everything else in the dust! What other video are you gonna pick from the late '90s, then?


ROUND 9: POP (PART 2) / BEST OF 1980-1990

The videos are:

Please [YouTube link]
Get up off your knees, before you give yourself an injury! Wait a minute, more people snogging? What is this, the Beautiful Day video?

If God Will Send His Angels [YouTube link]
Speaking of angels, Bono seems to be invisible again... and not lip-synching all that well. ;p

Mofo (Phunk Phorce Mix) [YouTube link]
PopMart montage, featuring Lara Croft and pregnant bellydancing Morleigh!

Sweetest Thing [YouTube link]
Presents for Ali!  It'd probably be quicker to list what ISN'T in this video. :)

Battle Of The Videos: Round 10

Sweetest Thing is winning the last vote by a mile. How could it not?!


ROUND 10: ALL THAT YOU CAN'T LEAVE BEHIND (PART 1)

The videos are:

The Ground Beneath Her Feet [YouTube link]
Originally featured on the Million Dollar Hotel soundtrack. U2 *AND* Salman Rushdie? That's almost too much awesomeness in one video.

Beautiful Day [YouTube link]
Bono and his clone create mischief at Paris airport. Random thrusting indicates secret nostalgia for Discothèque.

Beautiful Day (Èze version) [YouTube link]
Larry looks waaaayyyy too happy! Maybe someone spotted a mermaid through that telescope.

Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of [YouTube link]
Just the bang and the clatter as a Bono hits the ground...

Stuck In A Moment You Can't Get Out Of (US Version) [YouTube link]
What says "grief over friend's apparent suicide" better than American football and sledgehammer-subtle U2 jokes?
