i'm reading Money for Nothing by Saul Austerlitz at the moment and it mentions a lot of videos that were apparently hugely seminal and in some cases on heavy rotation on MTV, but that i've never heard of and will have to look through YouTube for. It talks about 'Bastards of Young' by The Replacements as being a harbinger of a minimalist movement in music video making, which i've never heard said by anyone before. It also discusses a lot of Madonna videos that nobody shows anymore (probably quite rightly) and loads of Godley & Creme efforts that i'd previously not been aware of.
It got me thinking, what's your favourite video that nobody really talks about? Off the top of my head i'd say 'Freddy Kreuger' by Reuben, and not just because Alcxxk is (apparently) in it. You?
