Just Aphex Twin's Windowlicker from this lot. Funny as strawberry float.

Ok Go is a great video, I was really impressed with that and I laugh at the random adverts that have tried to copy it.

Land of Confusion was a top video, it's a real shame to see it falling at the first hurdle.

Coincidentally I voted for the four which are quite comfortably out in front of the rest.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

He doesn't own it and also Disturbed are rubbish. Pearl Jam did that whole thing well better.

The Aphex Twin video is slightly disturbing.

Aphex Twin, for me. Chris Cunningham is great.

Ya Mama is clearly the best video on here because it's the funniest pop video ever made.

How does Here It Goes Again have so many votes? It's not even a particularly good song, though I will concede the video is pretty fun (despite the idea having been laboured by poorer innumerable copies). Windowlicker is a masterpiece IMO. (I voted for that and Ya Mama, btw.)

Ah well anyway. I take it the top four go through each round?

My thoughts, and frustrations, exactly.

And yeah, the top 4 go through, so Windowlicker is safe, for the noo.

I absolutely LOVE music videos, so I'm gonna take this proper seriously and try and make sure the right vids go through in each group!

For me, Window Licker is an undeniable classic and must go through. On the same terms, 'Bo Rap' has a terrible music video in actuality and therefore should go out.

Fatboy Slim has had loads of great videos, but Praise You is probably the best. Push The Tempo is good as well, but I can probably think for three or four better Fatboy Slim vids alone, so I'd put the former through, the latter out.

OK Go is just a great video that captured a mood, so that has to go through, and I've never seen the Disturbed video before, but I thought it was awesome, so I've voted for that as well.

Interpol and Immortal - theres many better videos in this contest!

Ya Mama is a much, much better video than Praise You. I don't really get the love for Windowlicker, either.

EDIT: It should be added that I think DML's right - it should be about the videos rather than the songs. Obviously some songs are going to mean more to people, but I'm focusing more on the quality of the videos.
