Top Ten Music Videos That Could Be Considered Works of Art
|Don't cry, Black Jesus! You and Madonna made the cut.|
10. The Buggles - "Video Killed the Radio Star" (1979)
What better place to begin then at the beginning. This was the first video ever broadcast on Music TeleVision. And its self-manifesting lyrical content set an early precedent for the medium's embrace of pomo/meta concepts.
9. Björk - "All Is Full of Love" (1999)
Uh, everything Björk produces, touches, or is even remotely aware of can be considered a fucking masterpiece. This includes the mucus she expels from her hairy nostrils and the doo doo brown that leaks from her booty. The various ass-kickings she has doled out to paparazzi over the years is some of the finest performance art we've seen since that one guy mic'd himself beating off under the gallery.
