Favorite fan-made music videos?
I'm a big fan of fan-made music videos. At least when they're well done. Here's some of my favorites:
A dancing David Tennant video set to "I Don't Feel Like Dancing" by the Scissor Sisters. It includes a bunch of clips from Doctor Who, Blackpool, Casanova, The Weakest Link, et al.
A Youtube poster named valentinojade has done a great series of Angel tributes. This is his Season 5 tribute. His Season 4 tribute is also really good, even in spite of his use of an N*Sync song.
A really fun NewsRadio video. It was originally set to "Love Shack" by the B-52s. Now, they've replaced the song with something more generic. However, it's still a great video because, for such a talky show, the video is an excellent compilation of all the show's visual gags over the years. (Actually, NewsRadio probably had more slapstick than any other American sitcom in the last couple decades. Thank Matthew for that.)
A Law & Order tribute to "I Fought the Law (and the Law Won)." It's only stills, no video. But I give them kudos for their excellent song selection.

What are some of your favorites? What do you recommend?

I have a couple that are nBSG ones. There's Let the Day Start by The Call, and Pink's So What? The Pink one is still on Youtube, but The Call one doesn't seem available any more. :(

The Star Trek Rap featuring Prime Directive and Galaxy Class

Not sure if it is what you are looking for, but someone posted this link many months ago and I have remembered it every since. Not only is it funny it is well done. The tune is catchy too. I have found myself thinking of this song when the opening credits of TNG start.

I'm a giant nerd, but I absolutely love this video about Captain Janeway.

I love Al Pacino--this is a great tribute video.
Here's a wonderful X-Files video...

My Youtube favorites are full of these kind of videos!

Once upon a time, I stumbled across a great video with Mohinder and Sylar clips, cleverly edited to The F.U.N. Song. Sadly it was taken down for copyright infringement - anyone know where it might have resurfaced? :D

Still my favorite, but then I remember VH-1's "Pop-Up Videos" well...

"Strong rope...weak chair." :lol:

Star Trek + Nine Inch Nails = Closer

I Love Battlestar Galactica (this one has a few spoilers)

I have a terrific Firefly vid on my computer set to "Falling for the First Time", back from before Serenity came out. Unfortunately I can't seem to find it online anywhere.

Re: Favorite fan-made music videos?
There's one video that I recall from before Youtube was really well known. It was a Star Trek: First Contact video set to a lot of violent rock music. The best part was in the middle, when the music stopped. The Borg Queen asks, "Was it good for you?" Then they have a clip from "Yesterday's Enterprise" of Captain Picard shouting, "Not good enough, dammit! Not good enough!" Has anyone else seen this one or know where I could find it?

Here's a cool one for Pink Floyd's "Summer of '68"

Too lazy to do links.

There was a good "The Office" Jam vid to The Wallflowers "Closer to You" on Youtube. Don't often like the ones that slice audio from the show/movie into the clip but they worked it really well.

Found a nice video using Dido's "Take My Hand" and clips from the "Pride and Prejudice" movie. The ending of the clip really makes it for me.

Ingrid Michaelson's "Breakable" has a good black and white slideshow clip that really goes well with the show.

I found two decent DS9 videos on Youtube. One to Johnny Cash's "Hurt" (before anyone points it out I know it's a cover). The other with VNV Nation's "Endless Sky" that covered Sisko's journey as the Emissary.

I have also seen some pretty stunning, how should I put video edits around the place. Have to admit it when I first saw Placebo's official "Protege Moi" video I did not believe it was real.

Another great one, for the Fun and Games' "Elephant Candy"
