They Got It Right: 10 Songs About Love That Were Made Into Beautiful Videos

You Got Me – The Roots

Director: Unknown

What it lacks in narrative, it makes up in cinematic mood. Although you really can’t tell what is going on in this ambiguous video, the heaviness of Black Thought’s heart is so beautifully conveyed. We follow The Roots crew leader as he roams the streets of a deserted Brooklyn, as the only person alive amongst the “dead” so to speak, and that simple scene helps us focus on the tragic lyrics about the disintegration of a relationship. Not to mention, the contrasting juxtaposition of an orange-clad Erykah Badu singing in the drab apartment lobby is just beautiful.
