Music Videos?

Honestly? I can only tolerate videos that are slightly abstract, not quite so narrative. I think for the most part, music video is a dead art form. It renders your imagination obsolete by supplying one visual landscape for a song. And as a music lover, imagining that landscape is half of what makes a song mine. I like videos that are abstract enough that they don't steal that away from you.~Micheal Stipe. (TV-Guide. Dec 4th, 1999. "MTV 100 greatest music videos ever made".)
