I mean all they do on the videos is show fancy cars, jewelry, half-naked Women along with bikinis on, flashing money around, showin' big houses and being at Clubs(such as night clubs).

Why not make a video that has substance and story rather than the same thing over and over especially when that song has storytelling.

And speaking of song that has storytelling, back in 2000 I heard this song called "Stranger In My House" by Tamia, which was(is) a good song and I mean very good song which made me by Tamia's album "A Nu Day".

Then when I saw the Music Video for the songs Stranger In My House all the video showed was Tamia showing off her body. I'm like come on Tamia make the video that is part of the song.

I think a lot of music videos are pointless.

There are some creative ones out there, but most of the top 40 stuff is banal.

Yes, I think many are pointless and helped contribute to the death, or at least helped ruin MTV. Many classic selections to choose from but this is IMO one of the best ever made. It is more like a movie, and as you say, tells a story to go with the tune.

Here are a few good ones from the golden age of MTV. This was back when they were more into the music rather than how much bling-bling and T&A you HAVE TO SHOW. Crappy videos for crappy tunes, what do you expect? LOL

No, modern music videos such as these are highly creative and blow almost everything made in the 80's and 90's out of the water...

What's Rap? Something that your company shouldn't threaten to put on your evaluation stating that you're not a team player when you chose not to participate in this type of video that was intended to air on the company website for all to see. There's a time and place for everything and this is definately not the time nor the place for this to be used. Otherwise - Rap On!

I'm sorry, but this is the epitone of bad music videos. I don't see how this is any different than the hip hop videos with rappers trying way to hard to act "tough".
