Music Videos 7

88 Nine Inch Nails: “Closer”
I like this one. It's an excellent example of video, music, and lyrics combining perfectly. The crucified monkey is very unsettling. Definitely not safe for work.

87 Duran Duran: “Hungry Like the Wolf”
As Stylus put it, this is "the most colonial video ever". I'm not sure a band could get away with this nowadays: it is at the least patronising. 80's videos have to work hard to please me, and this is nowhere near good enough. Plus it comes from the band that gave us the atrocity that is "Rio".

Another couple of good'uns are next.
