And then YouTube killed the video star. Or maybe it was MTV, who shifted their focus from actual music to Jersey guidos and OC chickenheads. Either way, it’s a widely known fact that music videos in the 2000’s are a shadow of their former 90’s heyday.
So let’s kick off the weekend with a look back at the AWESOMEST MUSIC VIDEOS IN TOTALLY AWESOME MUSIC VIDEO HISTORY:
Thong Song – Sisqo, 2000
Man this takes me back . . .
Miami – Will Smith, 1998
Will Smith does not get enough credit for making some awesome party jams back in the day.
Oops! . . . I Did it Again – Britney, Spears, 2000
Babygirl, Muff and I used to race home from school every day to listen to this on the radio. Good times.
Waiting for Tonight – Jennifer Lopez, 1999
This video really makes me want to go to a jungle rave.
Cryin – Aerosmith, 1993
Alicia Silverstone, I like your style.
It’s All Coming Back to Me Now – Celine Dion, 1998
Um, who has a motorcycle weathervane???
I Would do Anything for Love – Meatloaf, 1993
I once saw a pair of undies that said “I would do anything for love” on the front, and the back said “But I won’t do that.” Genius.
November Rain – Guns N’ Roses
Babygirl secretly wants to wear the Stephanie Seymour wedding dress to her own nuptials. Fact.
Wicked Games – Chris Isaak, 1991
Somehow it never looks this sexy when I bite my nails.
