I made a cd for my daughter a couple of months ago.
While I was looking for songs, I thought it would be fun to look them up on YouTube. I wanted to see what, or if any videos had been made for these great songs.
What I found was pathetic. Now that I think about it, most of the early MTV videos are dismal too.
I think the world of music videos should do like the world of movies, remakes! There are so many “older” songs that tell wonderful stories; they would make super music videos. Or maybe a music video was made and it just didn’t do the song justice, remake it.
One of the music video stations that still play music could easily make a weekly show out of this idea. Maybe they already have and I’m just out of touch, its not like I’ve watched MTV or VH1 or whatever in the last decade.
Here are four songs I found on YouTube.
A Boy Named Sue- Johnny Cash
Long Tall Glasses- Leo Sayer
Space Oddity- David Bowie
I Don’t Like Mondays- The Boomtown Rats
I really like all four songs but don’t like the video on them. These could be great music videos if done right.
Anybody else have an old favorite (music video) they would like to see made or remade?
