I Love all of Sparks work but just thought it would be fun to see why other people like certain video's that I have listed. Would have polled more but I think I polled enough just a few off the top of my head.

"When Do I Get to Sing My Way" is a great rendition of 1930s era movie trailers. It is the perfect marriage of artist, song and video.

A very close second is "Rhythm Thief". This is the one I used in class this year for a lesson. It is a more artistic interpretation of the song it presents. The visual work is amazing and the symbolism provides layers of meaning.

"I Predict", without second thought.

Ron stripping is worth a thousand million watches.

It's all choices,now I come to think of it;the Plagiarism video version of No.1 in Heaven is close to the best ,if not best.My own choice may vary too,per day.

Well I can understand that Each day I see my favorites change back and forth swapping all the time I mean today mine just happens to be funny face tomarrow it will probably change again lol. No.1 song in heaven was my song a weeks ago, depending on my mood and just the day in general depends on what song and or video im going to favor the most. I just like to many of them I guess if I had to favor only one it would be a toss up. I may go crazy like my sister she would have a hard time choosing between When I kiss you and Rhythem Thief. Me on the other hand I would go nuts trying to decide which one would be my one and only most Favorite of all time. lol

On second thought, I just realized "Funny Face" isn't on the list.

There's something about Ron tempting little girls with candy that brightens my day.

Yeah at the time I just noted a few but I do love funny face and it really does brighten your day doesn't it? If your ever upset funny face makes you happy and its fun to work out too =P.

It's not so easy to choose one from that list. On one hand there is "Cool Places", which despite featuring a scene where Ron appears to be smoking a cigarette, the 'cast' look like they're having a great time. On the other hand "When Do I Get To Sing 'My Way'" is grand, multi-dimensional and a nod to the past yet it showed they were back, chart-bound and rejuvenated. The common link between the aforementioned videos? The Ron shuffle. In any case I voted for WDIGTSMW.

"When I'm With You" and "Singing In The Shower" are still visually arresting. "I Predict" goes a further provocative mile.

This has inspired me to reel off (no pun intended) a list of their official music videos:

This Town; The Number One Song In Heaven; Beat The Clock; La Dolce Vita; When I'm With You; Tips For Teens; Funny Face; I Predict; Cool Places; All You Ever Think About Is Sex; With All My Might; Music That You Can Dance To; So Important; Singing In The Shower; National Crime Awareness Week; When Do I Get To Sing 'My Way'; When I Kiss You; Now That I Own The BBC; The No. 1 Song In Heaven; The Calm Before The Storm; The Rhythm Thief; I Married Myself; My Baby's Taking Me Home; Perfume; Dick Around; Lighten Up, Morrissey.

Did I miss any?

Yes Dick Around should have been up there also my most favorite part is when they break it down and you have Ron Headbanging while playing his keyboard. Last night me and my sis were biking and skating around singing that and some biker stopped us and started to join in lol it was great!

I agree with jessie6413.

As for the list of official music videos, I had no idea that "Tryouts for the Human Race" has a video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kEwlRbey57U

And I wish "Good Morning" had a video too

I should have known at the time that Tryouts had a video. Good to see it surface on YouTube earlier this year. Yes, Good Morning definitely deserved a video - even if the band were extremely occupied at the time!
