Advantages: exellent videos, great songs
Every single released has its own video for the song. Whether it’s standing in a white room singing the songs or jumping out of a plane and falling at 100 miles an hour. An artist's video has to be good otherwise no one ill buy it. A great way to sell more copies is to actually put the video on the cd so people can play it on their computers. Anyway, these are my top ten videos.
10. D12 and Eminem/Purple Hills
This is quite a new one; it was purple pills but had to be changed after Eminem’s court case. There are multicoloured hills in the video to this song. It is an amazing video and attracts a people’s attention well. It isn’t my favourite music video but I still enjoy watching it.
9. Samantha Mumba/Gotta tell you
This is the first single from the Irish girl. It got to number one a little while ago. The video is one of the best she has done. It involves her running to get to a helicopter. She jumps over roofs, on top of lorries and all sorts of other things to get to her destination. It is a great video to a great song.
8. Gorillaz/Clint Eastwood
This is the first video from the cartoon band. It is not about the actor, Clint Eastwood, you might think it is after seeing the title. They are in a deserted place singing the song. I think it is good because of the graphics, the way the band and all the things around them are made up. It is like a mini cartoon movie.
7. The Fugees/Killing me Softly
This is an old one, I don't like the song much but the video is excellent. It cost over a £1,000,000 to make but was worth it in the end as the song went straight to number one. In the video the fugees are in a tunnel with planes flying over them and bombs falling al around them. It doesn't sound too spectacular at the moment but if you've seen the video you'll know what I mean.
6. Michael Jackson/Thriller
This is an old video but it is still excellent. Michael Jacks
on stars in his very own mini movie. It is full of ghosts and zombies rising from their graves. As they chase him around and it catches you eye. It is a very intriguing video and worth watching. I love this video and it is definitely one of the best.
5. Five/Don’t Wanna Let You Go
This is a great video but unfortunately the song did not get very high in the charts. The guys are in a huge house searching for a girl. The house is a bit like a haunted house and at one point in the video J’s head is in a glass cylinder by itself. This shows great computer work and the video must have taken a long time to make.
4. Destiny’s Child/Survivor
This is another number one smash hit for the girls. They are stranded on a desert island with no one, they are singing in their bikinis and costumes until at the end a helicopter comes to rescue them. It is one of their best videos and one that is always interesting to watch.
3. Robbie Williams/Let love Be Your Energy
Like Gorillaz this is a bit like a mini cartoon. It is a cartooned Robbie running through forests and on mountains to tell a girl something. It is a great video, which got to number one. This has great graphics and is worth the number one spot. I love this video and try and watch it whenever it comes on the TV.
2. Shaggy/It wasn’t me
This is a great video featuring ‘RikRok’ When RikRok cheats on his girlfriend with the next door neighbour his girlfriend catches him. Then, with Shaggy’s help RikRok runs away with the two women hot on his case. This is a great video but Shaggy only sits down with women all over him. This is like a small movie and it is a great video.
1. Robbie Williams/Rock DJ
This has to be my favourite video and definitely Robbie’s best. Another one of his great videos. This is a great video. Robbie is dancing in this huge place on a stage. He does all sorts of things and on the special versi
on of the video he pulls his skin off so he is left looking like a zombie. There are excellent graphics and computer work in this video and it is one of the best ever, as I’m sure you’ll agree. Robbie has done well here and all the hard work put into making the video has certainly paid off.
So there are my top ten videos and I certainly like them, I hope you do too. These are great videos and a lot of money was put into making them. For all of these videos about £4 million was spent. They are great ones and I hope they will continue making ones as good as these.
