Dance Dance for your Life: Top10 Music Videos Featuring Dance
2. World’s End Girlfriend – Les Enfants du Paradis
Directed by Yohei Saito, we sure love World’s End Girlfriend’s take on the choreography-based music videos with Les Enfants du Paradis, taking contemporary dance to music video height genius alongside Masako Yasumoto (once again on this list!!!). It’s hard to imagine a seven-and-a -half minute music video that only features one dancer doing her routine in one sole room lit just the same throughout the duration of the piece.
The result is electrifying… almost literally considering World’s End Girlfriend’s track. — Ghost
1. Fatboy Slim – Weapon of Choice
We told you it wouldn’t be the last time seeing Spike Jonze, and this is really no surprise at all. Fatboy Slim’s Weapon of Choice, featuring a very dancy Christopher Walken, is the epitome of a music video built on the idea of dancing. Visually interesting, engaging, infectious — and almost iconic on its own — still looks fresh after over 10 years of its release and its coronation at what used to be MTV’s VMA Breakthrough Music Video category.
There’s also a questionable changed shot, because that’s not Walken doing a flip, right? And by the end of the routine, there’s obvious flying with a wire… but we can let that go because it’s so cool! – Amy
But don’t take our list as the definite list. We want to hear more about music videos that feature dance!
