Hi everyone, I found this article today...

Like A Prayer tops video poll

Madonna's Like A Prayer video has been voted the most groundbreaking of all time.

The controversial 1989 promo prompted a huge public outcry and was condemned as blasphemous by the Vatican.

Like A Prayer topped an MTV poll to find the top 100 videos that broke the rules.

Madonna features three times in the top five.

Her Ray Of Light video is fourth in the list, with Vogue in fifth place.

Britney Spears is second with her 1999 debut Baby One More Time.

The video of Spears performing a raunchy dance routine dressed in school uniform made her a pop superstar.

Michael Jackson is third with Thriller.

The release of the zombie horror in 1983 was a global news event. Thriller still holds the record for the longest music video ever made.

Jacko`s duet with sister Janet on Scream, 12 years later - said to be the most expensive music promo in history - is sixth.

MTV commissioned the poll of more than 10,000 viewers to mark the channel`s 25th anniversary.

Robbie Williams` Rock DJ, seventh in the list, featured the pop star peeling off his own skin and was deemed so shocking that MTV could only broadcast it in its entirety after the 9pm watershed.

The leotard-wearing ladies working out in Eric Prydz video Call On Me were eighth.

Jamiroquai was ninth with Virtual Insanity, which appeared to show singer Jay Kay dancing in a room with moving walls.

The Spice Girls complete the top 10 with their debut hit Wannabe, unique in video history because it was filmed in one continuous take.

"25 years on from the birth of MTV, we can say that, contrary to all fears at the time, video definitely did not kill the radio star," said Mardi Caught, vice president of talent and music for MTV UK and Ireland.

"In fact, video has helped make music stars more vibrant, creative and impactful. Videos like Thriller and Like A Prayer aren`t just great promos - they`re pieces of pop history that broke new ground and are irrevocably wrapped up in how we perceive the artists themselves.

"And it`s great to see that the legacy of great video-making is very much alive and kicking with newer, more cheeky videos like Call On Me and Rock DJ being recognised too."
