Having recently discussed music videos both well done and not, I think we have to first agree that the video alone regardless of it's digital alterations. How the music syncs up with the visual is another art- a separate medium all together, which makes it too often overlooked. In order from earlier to more recent I have comprised a chronological line-up of music videos that were digitally altered and are visually stunning for their time. Can we decide what a good music video is without thinking that with more advanced technology comes better videos? Below are a list of music videos that were once outstanding.
Nine Inch Nails- Closer (1994)
Nsync- Bye Bye Bye (2000)
Madonna- Die Another Day (2002)
Tokio Hotel- Durch Den Monsun (2003)
The Used- Bird and the Worm (2007)
