MTV Music

I read over at doransky’s that MTV opened its music video site which contains most of the videos that have ever been played on MTV. All videos are free to watch. I guess if anyone MTV can do it, being the biggest player on the music video distribution market on television. I encountered some 30 second clips, but the rest I saw were full length.

I have always been mostly ignorant of music videos. My main source of new (and old) music used to be the radio, then later switched over to the internet. When I was a teenager we moved from our flat to a house with no cable for a while. By the time we actually had MTV I already went to university.

One of the few videos I’ve seen is Weapon of Choice with Christopher Walken’s unforgettable dance moves. I was happy to see Another Brick in the Wall there with Arnold Layne. However, Money for Nothing I’ve seen for the first time. I knew the Knopfler brothers have Hungarian roots but I was surprised to find a reference to that in the video. I challenge you to spot it. I also remember listening to The Man Who Sold the World‘s unplugged version back in my high school years a lot. You‘ve just been rickrolled, too.

MTV Music is a fun site.

  1. Jó ötlet, bár szerintem még fejleszthettek volna a minőségen egy kicsit. Legalább a hangminőség lehetne jobb. Madonna Frozenjét néztem és ott azért kicsit már zavaró ez a minőség, persze hallgatható, de ha már egy kifejezetten videoklipekre szakosodott oldalról van szó..
    (a japánoknak sem ártana egy ilyen oldalt készíteni mellesleg.. mondjuk nem tartom valószínűnek, hogy lesz ilyen)

    Egyébként jó az új megjelenése az oldalnak, bár nekem a kék tetszett :P
