I haven't watched either station since I clued in about 6 years ago that I was no longer in the demographic that they were aiming for. I have read that they have completely purged any music videos from their schedule, which is ironic considering both stations were created for the sole purpose of airing music videos. Apparently, despite the channels deciding there was no longer a purpose for music videos, the crazy internet is proving that there is an audience for them (on Youtube one of the most watched type of videos are music related). I decided that since neither MTV or Muchmusic will show any music videos, I'll do the internety thing and showcase a video. But not any video but arguable one of the greatest music videos ever produced (okay fine, the greatest). This was a cutting edge video for its time and caused there to be many imitators. In my opinions, no other video ever truly measured up or was able to successfully follow the formula. Do you want proof for this videos excellence? It is the only music video to be added to the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress (America).
If you haven't guessed what video I am talking about, then you have been hiding under a rock for a very long. Here is the greatest music video ever, Michael Jackson's "Thriller", which is made even more impressive when you realize it debuted in 1984.
