Do You Still Watch Music Videos?

Looking at this list of the best indie music videos of 2007 made me wonder: Do you actually watch music videos anymore?

I still love a good video, but I can't remember the last time I saw one on TV; mostly I just find them online. How about you?

OK, I chose "no, I never watch them online or see them on TV," but maybe that wasn't quite fair. First of all, I see but don't hear them on MTVU in the dining centers where I go to school. But I really just kind of notice that they're there; I don't really watch them (unless it's Rilo Kiley! They were playing "Silver Lining" for a while). Secondly, I occasionally watch music videos online, but really only old music videos. And it's mostly to listen to the music. If there's a song I want to hear but I don't have it, I just search for the video on YouTube and pull it up. But again, I don't really end up watching it. Remember TRL in it's heyday? I honestly don't know how that's still around at all. I remember that it came close to being canceled a few years ago. I remember a time when I would countdown the days to a new video release from one of my favorite artists, but now I don't even tend to watch the videos they put out.

MuchMusic here in Canada plays videos all the time, but I don't really watch. I'll watch a video once if it's for a song I like.

Music videos are practically extinct. I miss the simplicity of 80's music videos. They were just fun to watch. Now everything is all about outdoing the last best video.

I may be dating myself but I remember when MTV started...and it ain't what it used to be by any means. The only music videos I see are when I'm at the gym. But even that's not MTV. It's their in-house channel. If anyone is interested in the whole history of MTV and what happened to it, Vanity Fair did a great in-depth article a couple of years ago. Sounds boring but was actually pretty interesting.

I don't think MTV plays videos anymore. Yeah, there's TRL but they barely play then the whole way through and they are always marred by with screaming fans from Times Square. Still, with my nostalgic side coming out, I don't think videos are made the way they used to.

this is so sad what happened to MTV... Crap reality shows and no music videos. I watch them online or buy dvds like directors label - Spike Jonze, Chris Cunningham, Michel Gondry, Mark Romanek, Jonathan Glazer, Anton Corbijn and Stephane Sednaoui rock!

MTV doesnt have the right to call themselves "Music Televison" anymore. They lost touch with that a long time ago....its sad. I miss watching one video right after another...isnt that what music television is about? Not crappy shows and stupid reality TV. It just makes me so mad. I WANT MY MTV!!!!

Fuse is slowing going in the same direction as MTV and Vh1. They have so many shows they play now, and eventually we have to wake up at 6 to watch videos on the fuse. I remember when all they did was play cool music videos and trashed MTV for never playing music videos, but for some reason i believe viacom brought FUSE. I could be wrong but that could be the reason for them constantly playing reality shows.

MTV does have videos on. However, they are on earrrrly in the morning, and very very late at night. I'm up early, and VH1 and MTV have videos on then. That's before 6. Only for a little bit though. And CMT shows videos more than those two channel combined, but, they are slowly going towards all the reality TV BS.

I use to watch videos all the time but they are all the same with the t&a all in my face. Its boring after awhile. I'll watch occasionally but I am not really that interested.
