Maroon 5 - Moves Like Jagger Feat Christina Aguilera
Directed by Jonas Åkerlund, opens with Black and white footage of the great Mick Jagger himself, leading into a mash up of extra’s dressed up in Jagger’esk costumes and strutting their stuff to the funky beat! This video is pure fun and we dare you not to be up dancing onces you have heard the track. Oh and Adam Levine is shirtless in it too! Yum!

Robyn - Call Your Girlfriend
Taken from our favorite Swede’s latest album Body Talk, the music video for Call Your Girlfriend see’s the singer dancing round an abandoned warehouse which was cleverly shot in one unbroken shot. Directed by Max Vitali it was said by Tom Breihan of Pitchfork wrote that the video "is one long unbroken tracking shot of the Swedish pop queen dancing, singing, and looking like her heart is about to break. The only thing she has to keep her company is an elaborate lighting rig. It's a true command performance, a hall-of-fame effort from an artist at the absolute peak of her powers” Couldn’t of put it better our self-Tom!
