MTV Music

Now online: MTV Music. So obvious and wonderful it's amazing it took this long. Not only is it great for archival purposes, it's also a chance to see videos that don't get much air time in this post-music video era. Shame it took MTV so many years to roll out an easy-to-use music video archive, but hey, better late than never.

What I've watched this morning, blissfully all over the map:
~ Godley and Creme, Cry (probably my favorite video, period)
~ Val Emmich, Get on with It
~ LL Cool J, Mama Said Knock You Out (live Unplugged)
~ Estelle, American Boy (she looks nothing like I expected)
~ Kiss, I Love It Loud
~ Queens of the Stone Age, Go with the Flow (check the similarities in the glowing eyes to the Kiss video)
~ Living Colour, Cult of Personality

I'm disappointed by some conspicuous omissions (Lenny Kravitz's "Are You Gonna Go My Way" is a huge lack; "Ray of Light," "You Oughta Know" too), but in general, it's both fun and fascinating.
