I’m the original MTV generation. I watched it when they aired The Monkees and Madonna’s shocking music videos, which was every video she ever put out through the 90s. Then we all collectively stopped being shocked by what musicians did in their performances until Janet Jackson’s wardrobe malfunction.
Now I’m way too old for MTV. If you’ve seen one video, you’ve seen them all: scantily clad lip syncers twerking. But today I discovered Music Videos Without Music on YouTube and they are every bit as awesome as I thought they’d be.
Now I have a totally new way to waste time online. Thanks, YouTube.
