Music videos were a very different thing to generation X. We were raised on them. Weened on them. The electric-musical-tit which gave us life. It fed our need for music. Opened our minds up to the possibilities of short form film, and many of the directors who were blowing our minds back then with music videos were simply sharpening their teeth, and now the best of them are blowing all our minds with film. From David Fincher to Spike Jonze, music video was the template for setting the tone of much of film we all love now. So why not take a quick journey back through some of the videos that utterly blew my mind? Though young people now may only get music videos if they seek them out on the internet, there was a time when this is what we had on, in the background, no matter what we were doing. And these are six music videos that blew my mind back then, and are so brilliant that many of them still blow my mind today.
