I was scouring VH1’s “Top Music Videos of 2008” and frankly, I wasn’t impressed. I miss epic story-telling music videos of the 90’s, dark/disturbing grunge videos, elaborate dance-sequence videos, Erotic cowboy Madonna videos, happy, filtered, disco-colored pop videos like Smashmouth, No Doubt & Sugar Ray. I know Music videos are totally eye candy, but is that ALLthey are today? I was bored to tears with watching Jordin Spark’s hair blowing in the wind for 4 minutes, though the Mariah Carey “Touch my Body” video did make me chuckle a bit. I am also embarrassed to say that I liked Britney Spears’ “Piece of Me” video as well, cause of the painfully obvious CGI face/body shots, and when she flips the camera off.
This was my ultimate favorite music video at age 11. I think it had a direct influence on me naming my daughter after a flower. The bumblee bee girl will live on forever! What was your favorite music video when you were and MTV fan? Or are you still watching?
