Many of you know my posts have not been showing up in the WordPress Reader. I installed the “fix” last night. Please let me know in the comments section if I did show up there today. Thank you!
Yesterday I was in a space. I wasn’t in a bad space. I wasn’t in a good space. I was just in a space. It was one of those days that I had a hard time reading or writing so I chose to watch. Netflix shows, movies, Hulu and music videos. It didn’t matter what I watched as long as it required no effort on my part.
As I was in my vegetative state, I started playing some music videos that I liked and I came up with a thought – Why not list the worst music videos I’ve ever seen? I don’t know why I decided on the worst, rather than the best, but it probably had to do with my mood. There may be many that are far worse than these, but these are the ones that came to mind when I thought of it. So, here are, in my opinion, the worst nine music videos of all time. To be nice, the tenth video is what I consider to be the best music video of all time.
Many will disagree with me on this first video. It was immensely popular when it came out. It could have a lot to do with my dislike of the singer, Peter Gabriel, and of the song, Sledgehammer.
Number two is one of the most beautiful songs of all time, Killing Me Softly. The wonderful Roberta Flack version is a classic and I’d guess she’s pleased with Lauryn Hill’s rendition. Both are beautiful, but WTF is the deal with this video? Not only does it have nothing to do with the song, but it pulls it down into the gutter. I just don’t understand.
I like David Bowie and I’m a mega Rolling Stones fan, but if this Dancing In The Street video is what you get when you put Bowie and Jagger in a test tube, I hope they never do it again.
I don’t want to come across as a Bowie hater, because I’m not. Changes is one of my favorite songs of all time. I despise this video. I detest this song, so it may be why I dislike the video as well. I’d rather listen to a thousand bagpipe players stomping on cats than watch this video. Here’s Let’s Dance.
I went back and forth on the next two videos, each by Twisted Sister. I like the songs, but the videos hurt my eyes. I debated between We’re Not Gonna Take It and I Wanna Rock. It was a difficult decision, but when I took a good hard look at the two, I came to the conclusion they really are identical. So here are both of them.
This next one I have posted numerous times, but it’s so bad I felt I must include it here. Once again, for your viewing pleasure is Born to be Alive by Patrick Hernandez.
Here’s another one that’s made it to this blog on many occasions. Of all the videos on today’s post, this is probably the one that makes me laugh the hardest. One thing I must admit is that I’ve never been a fan of David Hasselhoff, but I do think some shots of him here are damn hot. I present to you, Hooked On a Feeling.
This Journey video is exceptionally bad. It looks like what you get when you and the rest of your garage band combine allowance money so you can make a video. Here is Separate Ways.
Finally, this last video, which is my favorite, should come as no surprise. It continually reaches #1 on many “Best Of” video lists across the internet. I present to you, for your viewing pleasure, A-ha and their hit video Take On Me.
Any that you’d like to add? What videos did I miss?
