What Happened to the "Movie" Music Video?
Since the recent passing of Michael Jackson, I've started to wonder what's happened to the "Movie" music video. Jackson revolutionized music videos and especially the "Movie" music video with "Thriller." "Thriller" is the greatest "Movie" music video of all time. Now, MTV only shows us reality TV. They should change the name to RTV (Reality TV). There is something special about music videos because they give us a montage of images that create a story. They are like little experimental films that only last for four minutes or longer and they turn musicians into actors. I miss seeing "Movie" music videos. I know that musicians still create videos, but they will never have the longevity that Michael Jackson has created over the years. Thank you for the videos MJ!
