Thread Name: Michael Jackson's Impact On Music Videos
Subject: RE: Michael Jackson's Impact On Music Videos
I think he was very, very bright. Maybe didn't have much emotional intelligence. His videos, which I have been "wasting time" watching today are quite brilliant productions. I don't much care for music videos in general, and from what I have seen, I prefer the stage productions to the videos. But if film musicals had made a comeback during his career and he had the interest in doing them, they would all have been winners.

I don't really have anything to contribute to this thread, Azzizi, because I have never much cared for music videos and so have seen very few. That being the case I don't have any first hand appreciation of his impact. But from what I am reading and hearing, he definitely kicked the production and expectation up several notches.
