honestly now. I like P.Daughters as much as the rest of you, but that "Hot Knives" video shouldn't really be on any "top" list. Dougal's video for Bat for Lashes gets my top vote this month for sure.
I'll bounce the hatorade off to Prog's listing of the Common vid, which was nothing new given vids like Mama Said Knock You Out (!) and Hella Good.
Bat for Lashes was my favorite.
Other videos I thought were great were
Blue State's Allies and
Klaxons' It's Not Over Yet.
I also agree with freshhead, the Bright Eyes video was pretty bland, not really feeling that one.
