Music Video of The Week

What is this Thing: Herschel’s MV Pick of the Week
Things Type: Music Video
Notes: I’ll admit that posting these music videos of the week shows my age. I’m a kid of the 80’s when MTV revolutionized the music business. Yea, the 80’s were full of big hair and weird costumes. I’ll admit that I like all types of music and this week’s MV of the week comes from the 80’s and pop music. What I really liked about A-Ha’s Take On Me video is that it’s was heavy on a story component AND they mixed in cartooning with live action. It just had that Tarantino Kill Bill cut-away feel before Tarantino made it cool… You can curse and make fun of the 80’s and MTV, but it sure is fun too look back and realize that it was a time when Music and Video collided to create a new art form.
