Whatever happened to good music videos?


A recent post on Fark led me back to YouTube to look at some old music videos. I know I’m old but I really miss the ones that actually told a story or at least got the idea that they were presenting on a visual media. Some examples for your viewing pleasure:

Drive by The Cars
And She Was by The Talking Heads
Darkness, Darkness by Robert Plant (originally performed by Jesse Colin Young and the Youngbloods
We Didn’t Start The Fire by Billy Joel

Voices Carry by Til Tuesday
Cloudbusting by Kate Bush (with a cameo from Donald Sutherland)

Right Now by Van Halen
The One I Love by REM
Another Day In Paradise by Phil Collins
Freedom ’90 by George Michael
All Night Long by Lionel Richie (ok, this one is a little dated)
You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon (with Chevy Chase)
Steppin’ Out by Joe Jackson
Boys Of Summer by Don Henley
Bop Til You Drop by Rick Springfield (!)
Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper
The Living Years by Mike and the Mechanics

That’s it for now, I could do this all day.
