I just watched this doc. off HULU the other day. "Money For Nothing" (named after the 1985 Dire Straits song/video of the same name) goes into the history of the music video- from Madonna and Bruce Springsteen to Lady Gaga and Beyonce, and everyone in between. It gives a little history lesson, and speculation from fans and music critics, as to the music video's first origins. It also shows the evolution of the music video, from an exploding early 1980s TV force to be reckoned with, to it's ultimate demise into modern-day un-defined oblivion.
As I was watching these, I could recall only so many past a particular time. It's not that they stopped making music videos, but the channels that used to air them all the time- particularly MTV, VH1, etc..- basically stopped playing videos and switched to the all reality TV bandwagon. And I'm glad the doc. covered the alternative music scene, as well as the hip hop/rap scene, but am wondering why they chose to eliminate the country music video scene altogether-?? I mean I recall some pretty decent CM videos, especially right around the mid-late '90s- ?? But really nothing new with this doc, just a lot of reminiscing about a day gone forever- or maybe just a day not lived on TV any longer-??
