Crystal started off so beautifully... THEN PEOPLE STARTED FIGHTING. How is this an interpretation of this song?
An artistic interpretation of this song would be....
Me in a 1960s coco dress.. in the crystal ballroom... I lock eyes with Jamie Dornan... or like maybe a Chris Hemsworth ... and we have our first glance,kiss and dance. And then we go on to have a very passionate and intimate life. Portrayed in the video , of course. Then towards the end... we come back as Spirits to cheer on the boys.

SFS's video was unbelievably awful

Pretty much nailed the vibe of the song then

This just makes me wonder what the videos would have been like if they had directors like David Lynch and Terrence Malick behind the wheel.

zeeTV,

I think there is not only one way to judge this thing, so I respect and understand your opinion, since it's pretty solid and I agree with your points.

But I'm not sure we should only be looking for meaning. Of course, some of the artists tried to capture the idea of the song into the video, but most of them tried to portray their own ideas or just promote their own work. In the end, it's all about aesthetics. How much we will enjoy each of these cases is personal, but I don't see it as a problem. As for myself, I liked the whole experience and I may say I like SOI even more now. Definetely more interesting than most song videos around the market and better than Linear for me.

About SLABT, in my opinion, the video captured its feeling, even if avoiding its topics. It's dark, somber and shows the rotten side of its subjects. More metaphors can be done too...

The guy of Volcano got the lyrics right: "something in your mouth to blow", LOL

Yes... I kind of liked the Volcano video, but the lyric change with the artwork at the end was more awkward than the Mullen cover.

Great song.  Horrible video.  What does it even have to do with the song?  What was U2 thinking?

After literally feeling raped by this band today and the ticketmaster "TM+" fiasco, I have no interest in buying this movie or listening to their music for awhile. So disgusted.

'Raped'?  Really dude?  Get a grip.
