The Top

CGI, rapid cuts, and flashy guest appearances continue to reign supreme in the music video world. Enter Francis and the Lights. Director Jake Schreier was wise to step back and let casually eccentric headman Francis Farewell Starlite do his thing in this video for "The Top." The shoulder-padded, floppy-haired crooner takes center stage under a classic spotlight, armed with nothing but a mic and a serious case of happy feet. On top of a simple-but-compelling beat, Starlite lays down a whole range of vocal styles–from quivering falsetto to growling Tina Turner-esque hooks–to match his corresponding range of expressive dance moves. Watch him go! Lulu McAllister
