AMVs That We Want To See

The reader (that's you) is certainly aware of the concept of the AMV (Anime Music Video) in that one makes a videoclip with scenes from an anime and some music. Recently some VGMV (Videogame Music Videos) have surfaced, featuring fighting game characters rocking each others' faces as heavy metal plays in the background. Thusly, I list the AMVs that I have pictured in my mind, but have sadly been unable to find in the real world.

Video: End of Evangelion
Audio: R.E.M. - It's The End Of The World As We Know It
Comment: This is such a perfect match I am sure only my sub-badass search abilities have not found it.

Video: Akira
Audio: Madonna - Just A Prayer
Comment: Make best possible use of the 'When you call my name' and 'I can feel your power' bits.

Video: Legend Of The Overfiend
Audio: Men At Work - Down Under
Comment: Get it? Hahaha I crack me up.

Video: Teen Titans, Samurai Jack and the rest of the new wave of american anime
Audio: The Vapors - Turning Japanese
Comment: I am aware of the undertones of the music and would like to point that while several songs can be used for self-pleasing euphemisms, only one refers to the ever-increasing phenomenon of turning Japanese.

Video: Clips from Ninja Gaiden games
Audio: No Doubt - Just A Girl
Comment: If you do not grasp the significance of this, you do not know the history of your games. Study more and eat your vegetables.

Video: Serial Experiments Lain
Audio: Macy Gray - Oblivion
Comment: Oblivion is such a cool song that it needs to be SOMEWHERE.

Video: Evangelion - Elevator bit
Audio: John Cage - 4'33"
Comment: I once saw all of Evangelion and Serial Experiments Lain in the same weekend. It made my mind complex, like an anti-Flaming Carrot.

As usual, feel free to use the Comments box below to its maximum capability to express just how geeky the post above was.
