Only a year late.

Last year, a sadly now-defunct blog called Videotech put out a list of the 65 best music videos of 2005. I've already linked to several of their selections in other posts, but here are some from that list that I missed.

Glosoli - Sigur Ros. Beautiful children, breathtaking cinematography and haunting themes are always prevalent in Sigur Ros videos, and this is one of the best.

The Irish Keep Gatecrashing - The Thrills. Great song with a Ben Folds/Death Cab feel, backed by excellent stop-motion photography make this one quite enjoyable.

Us - Regina Spektor. Washed-out color and stop-motion photography give this video a fantastical quality and nostalgic feel.

Middle of Nowhere - Hot Hot Heat. The camera reveals what we cannot see. Very well executed.

Chocolate - Snow Patrol. This is one of my favorite bands. This video captures the spirit of the song, with the swirling chaos surrounding the calm of the singer's voice.

Nobody Move, Nobody Get Hurt - We Are Scientists. The band runs from a guy in a bear suit, directed by The Lonely Island (the guys behind SNL's digital shorts).
