1 Continuous shot

got this cool snippet form songfacts.com:

The video Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve featured "one continuous shot of Ashcroft bumping into people as he walked down Hoxton Street, a crowded shopping area in London. Other videos with 1 continuous shot include Lisa Loeb's Stay and Coldplay's Yellow"

Cool ah?

Can you think of any other music video which is just one shot?

is U2's 'Sweetest Thing' one shot?

    kylie's come into my world is shot to look like one shot. We are all sure it isnt 1 continuous shot.

    I remember a hindi song which is definately a continous shoot. And thats "Chale Jaise Hawayein" from Main hoon na.

    The final video shows these guys struggling to put things together to make the shot.

    Kylie's come into my world is only part video {blue screen magic} and most of it is celebrated 3d composition work.
