I've always found this "walkthrough" of Dungeons Of Daggorath hilarious, with the narrators self-effacing commentary over his admitted incompetence with the game.
I've always loved the Michel Gondry + Bjork combination. Her lyrics have always reminded me of dreams, and his imagery has done the same. Plus, this song in particular is so grimy and raw sounding.
The above is from Rankin-Bass's (the awesome cartoon company that produced the old claymation "Rudolph" specials, The Last Unicorn, and Thundercats) version of Return Of The King, and boy... that is some funky wah-wah goin on with that guitar. In the animated version of this and The Hobbit, they did a great job of replicating the songs that are sprinkled throughout the books. Speaking of things that were much cooler in the animated version than the live-action one, here is the scene where they break down the gate with the giant battering ram.
