Battle Of The Videos: Final Result?!

And the winner is.....

Too close to call!!  I was *planning* to wrap this thing up tonight, but really there's no clear winner - it could still change if anyone else decided to vote. So, the provisional winner is:

Stay (Faraway, So Close!)

Congratulations (maybe) to Wim Wenders and Mark Neale. :)  A truly beautiful video that illustrates the song perfectly, and works as an extension of the movie too. The visuals, the storyline, the acting, all wonderful - I think you'll agree, a worthy winner!  If only they'd do another video of this standard...

Snapping at its heels, though, we also have fellow Berlin video One as well as Sweetest Thing - currently tied in second place, and only 2 votes behind the leader! You guys have excellent taste, I love those three.

And behind the top scorers, we have a three-way tie between Streets (I was half-expecting this to win!), Discothèque and Electrical Storm. There was quite an even spread of votes, really - all of the finalists received at least one vote. I guess it wasn't easy picking a favourite. ;)

Thanks for playing, everyone - it's been fun!
