Billboard Best Music Videos Poll Resaults

1980s
1. “Thriller” Michael Jackson (1983)
2. “Like A Prayer” Madonna (1989)
The religious imagery in the 1989 hit quickly got Madge into hot water with Pepsi, whom she was doing commercials with at the time. But nevermind the fact that the Vatican condemned it, the scenes of crosses and Madonna getting cozy with a saintly character in a church have remained memorable for 20+ years.
3. “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” Cyndi Lauper (1983)
4. “Take On Me” a-ha (1985)
5. “When Doves Cry” Prince (1984)
6. “Sledgehammer” Peter Gabriel (1986)
7. “Hungry Like The Wolf” Duran Duran (1983)
8. “Walk This Way” RUN-D.M.C. and Aerosmith (1986)
9. “Every Breath You Take” The Police (1983)
10. “Rhythm Nation” Janet Jackson (1989)

1990s
1. “Baby One More Time” Britney Spears (1998)
2. “Scream” Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson (1995)
3. “Vogue” Madonna (1990)
Madonna, like Jacksons Janet and Michael, knows that one way to make your video a must-watch is for it to couple a great song (check) with an irresistible dance routine (check). Add a black-and-white look that’s straight out of 1940s Hollywood’s glamorous silver screen era, and you’ve got “Vogue,” which continues to remind all just how well Madonna knows how to strike a pose.
4. “Freak On A Leash” Korn (1999)
5. “Smells Like Teen Spirit” Nirvana (1991)
6. “My Name Is” Eminem (1999)
7. “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” Missy Elliott (1997)
8. “Waterfalls” TLC (1995)
9. “November Rain” Guns N Roses (1992)
10. “Virtual Insanity” Jamiroquai (1997)

2000s (no Madonna on the list)
