Off-Topic: Best Music Video of All Time

Jennie was showing the girls old rock videos from the ’80s and ’90s last night, and the girls were horrified.  We were watching a Guns N Roses video when one of them said, “This band is made up of a bunch of really ugly girls.”

The other one said, “And this must be what people had before they invented rap.”

Both girls started laughing uncontrollably.

So we showed them Run DMC and Beastie Boys (to give them a little knowledge of the origins of rap).  Both girls said that Run DMC and Beastie Boys weren’t rapping.

“They’re just yelling,” they said.

But then we watched the “Sabotage” video, possibly the greatest music video of all time.  And the girls could at least get into that:

  1. While I do love Sabotage, the “Best Music Video of All-Time” discussion begins and ends with Wham! and a true work of art in “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go”. And I will fight to the death anyone who has anything bad to say about George Michael or Wham!.

    The video is even better when you realize that it was over 20 years after that video that George Michael came out. Not to put too fine a point on it, but let’s just say the signs were there.


  2. And ‘Honorable Mention’ goes to Culture Club and Karma Chameleon. Is it a music video? Is it a history lesson? Who can tell. But, I can tell you that it is definitely awesome.
