Hmm this is difficult. My favorites (in no specific order) are:
- Chemical World (love how chill and beautiful this video is. Also what's not to like about Graham being in a tree? :P )
- For Tomorrow (really fits the song. Takes us on a journey through London as does the song. Beautiful)
- Tender (such an amazing performance of the song. Damon's "help me's" are spot on here. Makes me emotional :lol: )
- On Your Own (find the video just very fun. Damon's Kangol hat and his jumping really makes it for me haha. And Dave being in a hole!)

Coffee and TV is a pretty obvious choice. But who can resist the charm of Milky? :P

Also For Tomorrow, The Universal and Good Song. And I have a soft spot for Bang.

I love Good Song's video. Just wish it was higher quality (looks awful when I'm playing the 3rd DVD in the Blur 21 box!) and didn't have such an annoying sound with the leaf blower!

agreed.
the universal is the kind of video you keep watching 20 years after. Is perfect.
and beetlebum, the last shot from above is amazing, a very simple thing to do today, but a great idea at the time (plus, damon's eyes *fangirling*)

1. The Universal - Love the urban 2001: Space Odyssey setting
2. Beetlebum - Wonderfully captures the feeling of the song and the ending is breathtaking. Features extremely good camera work.
3. Coffee & TV - 'Nuff said
4. Crazy Beat - I think I have a soft spot for "produced" videos especially when they work well with the song
5. Parklife - Great attention to details, funny to watch!

Coffee and TV, hands down. Inspired me for my stop motion video at college a few years ago. I used a cola bottle in a suit trying to become James Bond! :oops:

It really depends on mood. I thought the video for "To the End" was a hilarious spoof of" highbrow" art film. "Chemical World" makes me feel cozy and nostalgic. "The Universal" is so slick and watchable, for its cleverness alone but also, I must say, for how sexy and playful Blur is in it. I like how it highlights Damon's quirky showmanship and theatricality.
