There is also an abundance of newer story form videos, although they are generally far shorter and highlight specific events rather than keep to the full story. Lupe Fiasco is an example of this form.
There are also the ‘older’ hits whose video’s were mainly just the band playing. I usually find these rather bland; I mean why bother watching a video if it isn’t anything special? One exception would be classical music, especially orchestra pieces or dual works.
Humor pieces are always fun, the best of which I believe is Weird Al.
Finally we have the dance crap. It annoys me, but some like it. Madonna pretty much created this one, and we all see how well that turned out (Britney and company, for those of you who have been spared this nonsense).
