Video killed the radio star, but the joint forces of YouTube and "Rock of Love Bus" have slowly offed the music video. MTV and VH1, channels I grew up watching obsessively, are now wastelands for vapid reality shows full of C-list celebs and lots of tattooed, half-dressed women. I say now: bring back the videos, MTV!
I want Matt Pinfield telling me music trivia, I want Kurt Loder explaining the faux news, and I want pre-Tara Reid Carson Daly with his black fingernail polish and non-riotous TRL. Surely you can work that in around "Single Ladies"?
Do you still watch music videos? If so, do you watch them on YouTube or on cable? Would you watch more MTV if they brought them back?
