    I understood completely because I skimmed. I thought the song (Stick Wit U)was better on first hearing than after watching the video.

    Yes, there have been several times I too have gone shopping on the iTMS looking for a nice pair of blue jeans or khakis only to be disappointed that they only sold music, and a few videos.

    IF I follow what you were trying to say:

    I've found that seeing the music video might add a layer of depth or meaning to a song that might otherwise make damn little lyrical sense to me, but I've never liked the song itself more as a result of seeing the accompanying video.

    This seems to be a regular response to StokeLee's threads/posts! Might be worth taking the time to explain yourself a little more clearly StokeLee

    Ok, sorry, It was late, and I was rambling.

    What I meant was (if anyone cares) have you ever listened to a music album, and thought that the songs on it were not that good. Then they go and release one of the songs that you thought wasnt any good as a single, with a video to go with it, which is the norm, and thought, whilst watching this video that infact its quite good.

    Please forgive any late night posts of mine, that whilst typing seemed like a good idea at the time :eek: but turn out not to be.

    Now I follow what you were saying.... I agree. Also there are many songs I can't stand to listen to, but with a video become more appealing. i.e. Girls Aloud ;)


    No problem, just read them again before posting.

    I see your point, and while I would tend to agree, it really only applies to quality music to begin with. 'Livin' La Vida Loca' will always be 'Livin' La Vida Loca', even with a good video to accompany the song :rolleyes:

    I think MTV is to blame for that. It was quite comon in the 80's for bad songs to become rather popular and hit the top of the charts due to that phenomena.

    ....oh well the good ole' days..... j/k

    I actually enjoy watching music videos. Sometimes but only Sometimes you can understand the song a little bit better. (but sometimes but only somtimes it will confuses a little bit more)
