#62: "Sledgehammer" - Peter Gabriel
Release Date: 1986
Director: Stephen R. Johnson
Fun Fact: The video has won a whopping NINE MTV Music video awards, which is still a record to this day!
This video is also the most played video in MTV music channel history too. That's of course part to how old the video is but also to how damned good the video is also.
Now, I'm going to level with you here. I'm not a massive fan of this song. It's okay; I can listen to it when it comes on the radio but it's not on my personal media player or anything like that.
But this video is just amazing. It draws you in, you can't stop looking at it. The director and the team who took part in the creation of this video have done an insane job. It's just simply one of the best videos of all time, and in an unbiased list, this would be a certain Top 10, if not Top 5 entry.
Another fun fact - Aardman Animations, the guys who made Wallace and Gromit, as well as Shaun the Sheep, took part in the making of this video!
