A GOOD WEEK FOR MUSIC VIDEOS

Good music videos either have to be aesthetically pleasing or tell a decent story. Most of the time, we get neither, leaving us to watch an artist lip-synch in front of a plain background for approximately three minutes. Because labels aren’t willing to shell out big bucks for music videos anymore, I’ve (unfortunately) gotten used to clips that look like they were filmed on a $5 budget. This week, I was pleasantly surprised by two music videos that both make sense and are aesthetically pleasing. While many people argue that music videos don’t matter, in my opinion, they are just as important as the song. I love when a music video looks like both time and money were spent on it. If you haven’t already, check out Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie” (which has already logged over 14 million views on YouTube since Thursday) and Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue”.
