I've considered myself a Radiohead fan for quite a time--since The Bends. But I think the only videos of theirs I've ever seen were the ones for "Karma Police" and "Paranoid Android," back when OK Computer hit it big. I guess this is what I get for growing up without MTV? Anyway, while hanging out with [livejournal.com profile] the_drifter last night, I caught a snippet of the video of "Street Spirit," and you guys: I had NO IDEA they actually made a video for that song, which is one of my favorites of theirs. So I looked it up tonight, and I can't get over how mesmerizing and beautiful and eerie and clever this video is. I think I've watched that thing five times in a row now, and it's so good it makes the back of my brain itch. It's almost an unpleasant feeling, but it's not.

Radiohead has a pile of good videos. I particularly like the minimalist, one-shot video for "No Surprises," and the video for "Just" is pretty famous, with a hook that you'll either love or hate. But in general, their videos are done by talented directors who do interesting thing with the songs.

The director who did the Street Spirit video is pretty fantastic, and has done a number of other videos that are worth looking up. Jonathan Glazer, and I have a collection of his videos on DVD, and you're welcome to either come over and watch or borrow them if you wanna see. :)
