Gypsy- it's like a movie, and they all look so great.

Little Lies- again, they all look so great, and extra points for the way it seems to foreshadow Lindsey's departure. I also love the way they show the members in various groupings (Lindsey and Christine, John and Stevie, etc)

As Long As You Follow- again, they look so classy. Plus I love the plot, though I don't know that I completely understand it LOL!

Big Love- crazy mind trip.

Gypsy - its like a classic black and white movie
Skies the limit - love the live clips
As Long as you follow - love the romance and the snow falling outside
Hold Me - love finding all the guitars in the desert. Chris and Stevie are so hot in this video
Save Me - love the tribal theme and Stevie's big cross necklace

Love will show us how is still my all time favorite video of the band including solo work

Going out on a limb and guessing “In The Back Of My Mind” won’t be getting any love.

That one looks like it was made In The Back Of My Garage.

The video for Paper Doll is a shambles as well--fancy re-using Rumours era videos like that! And Stevie clearly wanted nothing to do with it.

A little off topic but I have always wondered why MTV never aired the Everywhere and As Long as You Follow video.
Everywhere was a big hit and I used to watch MTV expecting to see a video from the song. I never thought there was a video until not that long ago when I saw it on YouTube. Back in 1988 VH1 played soft rock, classics, and adult contemporary songs and played As Long As You Follow in heavy rotation. However, MTV never played the video. I always wondered why this was the case. I would watch all day and record on VCR and the videos never aired.

Big Love is really quite impressive. Gypsy is nice because it's a big budget video, the "oh, we tell a story in a song" type, but it doesn't have the "wow" factor of Big Love. Perhaps the best video any of them has done is Christine McVie's Love Will Show Us How, which features b-movie artist Paul Bartel and is a genuinely funny send-up of music videos—much different than the way Big Love's surprising structure and effects really enhance the song experience—but definitely smart and silly and came in the first three years of MTV, to boot!

Stevie Nicks looks great in that red dress in the desert and the Surrealist stuff is great in Hold Me, too (smashing the mirror, the Magritte paintings). Other than those examples most of the videos from any of them are pretty "basic"... LB's Trouble is interesting in the way they use all the people do imitate a video special effect and then it's also this big party of associated musicians. And of course SN on the treadmill is "iconic" but, like, you know, it looked kind of ridiculous 35 year ago LOL... SN's commentary on her videos is great! Hilarious!!

Stevie’s commentary is hilarious. My favorite is If Anyone Falls when she says “...my friend Sandy Stewart, because we wanted her to be in it. Oh, she actually wrote half the song, that’s why she’s in it!”
