1 What a Fucking Lovely Day! Beth/CG Stephin Merritt Pirates of the Caribbean None
2 Dying Cherry Ice Hole Torchwood None
The central issues of Torchwood--death and compassion--are explored here through deft clip choices and an almost organic rhythm.
3 Boulevard Of Shati Boulevard of Broken Songs Party Ben (Green Day vs. Oasis vs. Travis vs. Aerosmith vs. Eminem) Buffy the Vampire Slayer None
An extremely ambitious vid combining deep context and intercutting around a powerful thematic center.
4 Straight Outta Compton The Pug Nina Gordon The Shield None
The cognitive dissonance created by this version of the song makes this a surprisingly disturbing, effective vid.
5 One Week Zee Barenaked Ladies Supernatural None
Any SPN vid that makes you laugh is an automatic win as far as I'm concerned.
6 Desert Rose Beth/CG Sting Heroes None
Luscious atmosphere. A beautiful lyric vid.
7 Save Yourself jarrow Stabbing Westward Battlestar Galactica (2003) None
Shiny! An unusual take on Boomer and Starbuck, as characters and as representatives of the Cylon and human races.
8 Learning to Fly Revolutionary Biscuit Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers due South None
Brand new vidder makes a classic slash vid. Well-considered bridges and a deft POV shift make this a very strong first vid.
9 Dreams newkidfan Evergreen Faithless Stargate Atlantis None
New vidder, new vidding style. I love the impressionistic feel and the creative collaging of half a dozen media sources.
10 I Had a Dream Dayln Butthole Surfers Lost and Supernatural None
Unusual effects and bits of audio from the show enhance the surreal mood of this crossover.
11 Hide and Seek fenlings Imogen Heap Jeremiah None
Stunning, moving, and spare. Plus you know I'm a sucker for a cappella.
12 White Light Greensilver Gorillaz Supernatural None
Creeptastic and unexpectedly sad, this vid contrasts a normal life with a haunted one to devastating effect.
13 Absolutely Cuckoo Zoetrope The Magnetic Fields Stargate Atlantis None
Style and content are perfectly integrated into a 47-second comic masterpiece.
14 A Bitter Song hollywoodgrrl Butterfly Boucher Battlestar Galactica (2003) None
A laser-like focus on a single important plot element shoots this vid from simple re-telling to profoundly compelling.

This vid is a celebration of slash fandom and a stylistic masterpiece.
