I want to make one thing clear from the start: This is my hitlist. John, Josh, and Pierre had nothing to do with it, and I don’t want to sully their reputations or that of the blog as a whole in presenting it. You know what I think about music.
But the following is a list of eight music videos from the Aughts, loosely defined as “my favorites.” I was late to the music video party, not getting MTV until it stopped playing music videos.*
*I mean “getting” there in the sense that I did not have it as a channel on my television. I did understand what MTV was.
If you want to make the case that I don’t “get” music videos, go ahead.
