OK – here are my TOP FIVE music videos

1. Ego – by Elton John:  I must be the only person in the world who likes this (even Elton has disowned it). The video is interesting’ to say the least

2. Time Will Crawl – by David Bowie: likewise this – great single (sounds like Neil Young a bit?) but nobody’s heard of it (does not even make double cds of Bowie’s hits).

3. Words That Mobilise – by the Webb Sisters: What can You say?

4. Chim Chim Cheree – by Turin Brakes: Mary Poppins is in my top 5 movies and this is one of the best songs (vocals are better than DvD’s)

5. The Boy Who Giggled So Sweet – by Emiliana Torrini: Perfection from Emiliana

Downtown Train – Tom Waits

The Sensational Alex Harvey Band – Delilah
