From a-ha and Dire Straights, to Linkin Park and Kanye West, these artists gave us some memorable animated clips.

Two things we all loved growing up were cartoons and music videos. Maybe that’s why we have such a predilection for animated music videos. When it comes to the good ones, they’re the best of both worlds.

A plethora of artists have attempted to turn their music into short-form animated classics, and whether it’s been through the use of traditional animation, computer animation, stop motion animation or claymation, many have succeeded.

Check out our picks for 20 of our favorite animated music videos.

a-ha – "Take On Me"

Released: 1985

Inarguably one of the ten greatest music videos of all-time, this clip still looks amazing 32 years later.

    Val Sklarov Am not against animations and the videos look awesome so many years on, but in my opinion, real videos are still better. It’s also a job opportunity for many.
