What are your favorite and least favorite solo Paul videos?

Among mine (BTW, I'm making these links rather than embedding videos so the page-loading doesn't get bogged down):

 

Favorite:

Band on the Run (anything animated usually gets to me. And I love it started out as a student's project that caught Paul's eye)

Mamunia (also animated and the main character looks like John. And nice shots of Chicago)

Ever Present Past (adorable Paul dancing!)

My Valentine (beautiful concept and cinematography)

Brown Eyed Handsome Man (just brought to my attention, and I really like it)

 

Least Favorite:

Press (Paul on the Tube, Paul on an escalator, Paul on the Tube, Paul on an escalator, you get my drift)

Off the Ground (awkward prolonged butt shots)

Gotta Sing Gotta Dance (from the James Paul McCartney special. So bad it might be good, but I still cringe)

 

I may edit this post as I think of others.

Least favorite: Queenie Eye. So many great people involved and the concept is okay, but the edited is just horrendous. It's completely lifeless and ruins the rhythm of the song. Such a disappointment because it's one of my favorite Paul songs of all time.

Favorite: Little Willow. So heartbreaking on several levels. I don't know how Paul even did that video at that time. 

I also really enjoy Dance Tonight and Ever Present Past.

Awkward?  Still not enough "butt shots" for me.   

I love how cheesy this video is!  I have been looking for ages for the one where he flies!  "Off The Ground".  Makes sense.

 

"Please don't bring your banjo back, I know where it's been..  I wasn't hardly gone a day, when it became the scene..  Banjos!  Banjos!  All the time, I can't forget that tune..  and if I ever see another banjo, I'm going out and buy a big balloon!"

:-) He also does a bit of flying in Your Loving Flame.

The best Paul video, hands down, was the one he made for Saturday Night Live way back I don't know when (late 70s? early 80s?) -- when he played different characters and instruments simultaneously on screen and playing together (the magic of cinematography) for the debut of his single, "Coming Up".  One of the characters he plays in that video is Buddy Holly with those goofy glasses.

(The only other person used in that video was Linda, I believe.)

It's Hank Marvin (of The Shadows who recorded with Cliff Richard) not Buddy Holly.

This alternate version of This One was posted at maccaboard and I think I'll have to add it to my favorites list. Note the apple at 1:46. I don't know for certain, but I'm pretty sure one of my favorite music video directors, Dean Chamberlain, was behind it. Edit: He was.
