Madonna, Michael, Aerosmith and Idol: The Music Videos of David Fincher

The filmed works of David Fincher aren’t limited to the cinema. In fact, Fincher has made more music videos and commercials than he has movies and today I’ve decided to highlight a selection of Fincher’s music videos from those that will have you nodding your head saying, “Yup, that looks like something Fincher would have directed,” and others that will have you saying, “What? Really? The guy that made ZodiacSeven and Fight Club made that?”

I did my best to find a few quotes for some of the videos, a few facts on others and I can also suggest you look for the likes of Djimon Hounsou in Madonna‘s “Express Yourself” and Paula Abdul‘s “Straight Up”, Christopher Walken in Madonna’s “Bad Girl” and you can also find supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford in the video for George Michael‘s “Freedom! ’90,” which was shot by Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo director of photography Jeff Cronenweth who also did The Social Network and Fight Club with Fincher.

I have included 19 total videos over the course of the next four pages outside of the video above for Karen O. and Trent Reznor‘s remix of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” which plays during the title sequence for Fincher’s upcoming release of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. And trust me, when you see that opening sequence it doesn’t look like what you see above and it is a piece of art all its own
