One rule here... You can't include blackstar or Lazarus. Those videos with both absolutely brilliant and I'm short black star will be chosen by the majority of people as Bowie's best ever video.

That aside...here are my top 3

1. Hello Spaceboy
2. Hearts Filthy Lesson
3. Little Wonder

2. Ashes to Ashes
3. The Stars are Out Tonight

Why can't we choose Lazarus or Blackstar. if the majority do turn out to thinb blackstar is his best video ever - I don't btw - then, so be it.

Has to include, in no particular order..

Ashes to Ashes - groundbreaking and iconic
Let's Dance - Political, slightly weird and incredibly sweaty.
Be my Wife - off kilter remake of Life on Mars video, if you think about it.

Special mention goes to..

Little Wonder
Stars are out tonight
Blue jean
Where are we now
China girl - slanty eye racist bit aside.

By the way, I don't like the Lazarus video or song. And I don't think Blackstar makes the best use of its long running time. By the time we get to the scarecrows I'm a bit bored.

Those two videos of very much associated with Bowie's death. Conceptually brilliant and a testament to the character of the man. My own personal opinion is it would be pointless to even ask the question if these two were included.

Let's Dance - The video lifts the song and the song lifts the video. Still feels fresh.
Boys Keep Swinging - David as the older lady kills me every time. I love that she's not demasked.
Ashes To Ashes - Dreamlike, goes so well with the words. Again an older lady tops it off.

A few elaborately staged TV appearances, like the SNL Man Who Sold The World with Nomi and Space Oddity Kenny Everett version come very close, and could arguably be included.

Lazarus of course had incredible impact in light of what had recently happened at the time it was released. It's still very emotional to watch it.

Ashes to Ashes by some considerable distance. It's the perfect blend of imagery, performance, special effect and 'story'.
(Compare its measured, accessible entertainment value to the extreme silliness of Blackstar - and all his late period efforts for that matter - that throw the kitchen sink of symbolism, trying so hard to be profound and deeeep.)
