Battle Of The Videos: Round 6 @ 08:36 pm

canadanne:
The drag version of 'One' is currently winning yesterday's vote - I had a feeling it might, though it's such a strong category that it could have gone any number of ways. (One is also in second place, with Bono in the bar.) Keep the votes and comments coming! And here are the rest of the videos from that album.


ROUND 6: ACHTUNG BABY (PART 2)

The videos are:

Even Better Than The Real Thing [YouTube link]
The world turns, and we get dizzy...

Even Better Than The Real Thing (Perfecto Mix) [YouTube link]
Best bits: U2 in drag (again), and Edge & Larry randomly dancing together!

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses [YouTube link]
Bono: "Who's gonna riiiii-- FUCK!" *stomps off in rockstar sulk*

Until The End Of The World [YouTube link]
Creepiest U2 video by a million miles. Evil Bono beckons you to the dark side, and christ knows what they've done to The Edge.

Love Is Blindness [YouTube link]
Tour footage mixed in with other images.

Even Better Than The Real Thing is just one of the coolest videos I've ever seen.

Bono is so sexy in the WGRYWH video. He makes me want to run my fingers through his hair and make-out with him.

I couldn't resist the crazed spinning in Even Better Than The Real thing, haha. But what the heck did they do to Edge in Until The End Of The World?! *vagely freaked-out*

I fell in love with U2 when I saw the video for "WGRYWH." It got my vote.

EBTTRT makes me dizzy and feel physically ill. I went with Love is Blindness...but I was so close to going with WGRYWH.

Bono is all kinds of delicious in WGRYWH, even when he FUCK!s up the lyrics =P

But I went with EBTTRT because it's overall more interesting. It's a barrage of imagery centered around the camera swinging up between Bono's leather-clad thighs. And I love the channel changing TV imagery during the solo.

Love is Blindness gets an honourable mention for some really poignant imagery.

Myself, as a person who's gonna study film directing after my current study "history teacher", LOVES "Until The End Of The World" and "Love Is Blindness", because I can really learn form these vids. They really show how musicvids can be intimate, in a way like MTV nowadays don't like to broadcast... That's a shame, because I think it'll work. It will be (again) revolutionairy.

So, I won't vote this round. These two vids are too good.
