Coldplay with Talk. Album X&Y (2005).

Using a riff from Kraftwerk's Computer Love (1981), for which they gave permission. The video is by well-known Dutch photographer/director Anton Corbijn, who, not surprisingly if you are familiar with the man's style, chose for a black-and-white clip reminiscent of a 50s sci-fi B-movie.

REM with The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite. From their 1992 album Automatic for the People. Prolly their best one, btw.

And if you ever wondered what that weird thing on the iconic album's cover is, it's a star ornament which used to adorn the Sinbad Motel on Miami's Biscayne Boulevard, near Criteria Studios, where most of 'Automatic for...' was recorded.

Slaap wel.
