Thirty-five years ago, almost no one understood the need for music videos. Hell, when MTV first signed on in the summer of 1981, they had a very difficult time getting cable companies to carry the channel.
But as time passed, music videos not only became important sales and promotional tools, but they also evolved as an artform.
The Museum of Moving Image in Astoria, Queens, New York, is now devoting an exhibition to the art of the music video. When it opens April 3, clips like this will get some serious art world love.
