Favorite Music Videos of 2006: #4

Scott Walker, "Jesse" This could easily earn best video of the year. I guess I betray a bias towards live action (as my top 3 choices shall bear out). But as a stream of familiar and oblique icons twisted into a distorted free-associational screensaver suggesting the perpetual decay of memory, eerily accompanied by the ghost of Elvis, this is hard to beat.  I'd rather see this in a dark theater 30 consecutive times than sit through Inland Empire for another three hours.
