    the list, with youtube help

    http://www.stylusmagazine.com/artic...agazines-top-100-music-videos-of-all-time.htm

    if the videos weren't enough, there's this passage which i particularly enjoyed

    anyway, the list -- as most of these are -- seems to be too skewed to the recent, but still pretty interesting
     
  2. I realize these lists are put together to generate discussion, but any list of Top 100 videos that does not include "Money For Nothing" is simply null and void. If you want to leave it out of the Top 20, fine. I can at least see that's debatable. But to exclude it from the Top 100 completely is asinine and renders the remainder of the list stupid.

    OTOH, any list that has Bastards of Young in the Top 5 is AOK by my book.

    Likewise, seeing Daft Punk's "Around the World" at No. 9 was great to see.

    It's a good thing that Nick Southall doesn't write for them anymore, they probably would have had five Oasis videos in the top ten.

    Just looked through the list and feel like I'm getting old. In the entire list I think there's only about 15-16 videos I've seen and in terms of songs, you might be able to add another 5 or 6 to that number for songs I've actually heard.

    At one time that video was MTV's greatest of all time, according to their own list. To think that 100 other videos have been made to top it is simply wrong. The list is "dead" to me.

    That designation would have nothing to do with the constantly repeated refrain of "I want my MTV" would it?

    Perhaps, but it's also ironic in that when was the last time you actually saw MTV play any freaking videos?

    Agreed. "Money For Nothing" is a pretty good video - and it was a HUGE single back in the day. But as far as videos go, didn't they run their course some years back? (Maybe the fact that MTV - and MuchMusic up here - rarely play them anymore have something to do with that.)

    Maybe so, but MTV's very name is therefore an abomination. Music Television. Bullshit!
