Money for Nothing: A History of the Music Video
Money for Nothing is a rip-roaring 75 minutes, taking in the past, present, and future of the music video. The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Guns N' Roses, 2Pac, Madonna, U2, R.E.M., Nirvana, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga - Money for Nothing is a refresher course in the last sixty years of popular music, and the unforgettable images that accompanied them. It is a story in three parts: the holy trinity of the video. In order to properly draw our map of the terrain, we will perhaps have to retrace our steps a time or two. But what is the music video, at last, but a series of deftly retraced steps - over and over and over again, until we almost forget we have seen it all before?
