Not a fan of Coldplay which is why I like this version of "Clocks" by the Buena Vista Social Club better. I love the girl's expressions.

Not a great fan of Ferry's voice but this is one of his best effort. Brings a certain energy to the Jagger/Richard original.

More than that, I love the montage of Oldman clips in the video. It really showcases the huge talent of the Grand Thespian of New Cross.

Juliet Turner's version of Britney Spears' Toxic is very good.

As is Yael Naim's version: http://ie.youtube.com/watch?v=j5pP55u9s10

My favourite is a song by one of my favouite bands ever.

Heartbeats by The Knife. The video is wonderful too.

And the cover version made famous by it's use in the Sony Bouncy Balls ad.

Sung by Jose Gonzales.
I am stil convinced that it is one of the best ads ever made. It's got a wonderful magical and fun quality that no amount of CGI could replicate.
