    Great article. Canada’s Much Music has followed suit with MTV and stopped putting the music in music television, much to my dismay. In high school, I’d always come home and watch the video countdown on Much Music – something that seems much more wholesome than reality tv, to me at least. The videos that stand out in my memory, not only because they were hit songs at the time, but also because they were particularly creative and interesting to watch, are:

    Weezer’s “Buddy Holly”

    R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”

    and Radiohead’s “Just”

  2. Thanks Alli, nice selection of videos. I especially liked the Radiohead one, I don’t think I’ve seen that video in a really long time and it’s completely brilliant. Good stuff.

    Love all the videos and bands you mentioned. Going back in time a little further to the 80′s, here’s a few of my most memorable music videos:

    Sledgehanmmer – Peter Gabriel

    Land of Confusion – Genesis

    You Can Call Me Al – Paul Simon

  4. Holy crap, ‘Land of Confusion’ is awesome. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it before either. I think there needs to be some sort of Music Video Hall Of Fame.
