Thursday Music

When music video started hitting the scene music changed forever. No longer were listeners associating music to their own interpretation of the lyrics. Since then directors have more of a say in how people listen to music than the actual songwriters, which is kind of pathetic.

Everyone has their favorite videos though and while I'm not a big fan I don't hate them. I watched my share of MTV. Many times did I rock out to Headbanger's Ball.

No everyone has a memory associated with Alphaville's 'Forever Young'. Usually it's on the dance floor of a gymnasium or how that 20 something guy who kept hanging around your high school tried to convince you that he loved you, but few I know have ever seen the music video to this.

I watched it for the first time not to long ago. I kind of wish I hadn't. Creepy:

"If music be the food of love, play on." - William Shakespeare

We never had cable growing up so it was always a treat to watch the music station at a friends house and see the latest videos.
