I'm examining some music videos in order to acquaint myself with their form and aesthetic a bit better. Of course, at the top of my list of favourites are a few of Kate Bush's early videos. Their sheer originality is astounding, especially when you consider that she was making these videos when the actual concept of a music video wasn't as advanced or sophisticated as it is today. But I also admire recent artists like Lady Gaga, who wears her influences on her sleeves, but nevertheless manages to do something completely different with them.
So this got me thinking about what kind of music videos appeal to different people. Have you ever sat back and watched a particular video that stuck in your mind? If so, please do share.
