The Model for Music Videos

From comes this nice survey (complete with all the videos) on the Top 25 Music Videos that used models (super and otherwise) to the musical story. While we agree with most of the picks, we’re puzzled about why the ground-breaking Terence Donovan video of Robert Palmer’s “Addicted to Love” was left out of the survey. No problem…you can click on the frame above and watch it. It was one of three videos that Donovan directed (“Simply Irresistible” and “I Didn’t Mean To Turn You On” were the other two…) (and yes…this music survey is going to have to suffice for the Weekend Concert Series…at least until this coming weekend).
