9. Ryan Adams, "New York, New York" (2001)
Modern-day balladeer Ryan Adams shot the devastatingly gorgeous video for this New York City hymn of praise against a backdrop that would change forever just four days later, when the Twin Towers were destroyed. The Grammy-nominated single from his excellent Gold album remains a fierce declaration of love, as well as a courageous rallying cry from a city recovering from loss and pain.
