Taylor Swift has caused quite a commotion with the proclamation that her next offering will be a full-fledged pop album. It will be interesting to see what her country fans -- as well as other listeners -- think once "1989" (reportedly named for her year of birth) is released in October. The first single from the album is "Shake It Off." The song's video was directed by none other than Grammy winner Mark Romanek, who has crafted some truly amazing music videos over the years as well as such feature films as "One Hour Photo," which starred Robin Williams. In honor of the occasion, we decided to look back at Romanek's career in music. Here are our picks for his 10 most notable videos:

"Free Your Mind," En Vogue (1992)
