Why do some bands and musicians even have videos? I mean, where do they play them? MTV doesnt really show anything, MTV2 shows what MTV shows only 24 hours a day... Do videos actually get played in other parts of the world? Sometimes it seems like a bunch of money is spent making a video, but who gets to see it? They play it once and thats it.
Considering your people never even heard of Kylie Minogue until last year, you should be aware that there is large market outside the US,. namely the UK, which spreads to germania and down to australia. sheesh. So to answer another one of your increasingly banal questions, some bands make videos cos they don't give a shit what you think.
actually, I was really surprised about music videos here in England. The british students are opsessed w/ american pop stars. They watch a program similar to MTV, but it has numbers you can call and request a certain video, which for a rather large charge, will be automatically played on your screen.
These students love talking about these annoying American pop stars like Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, etc. I got here, and was kind of upset, because no one really listens to the classic southern rock that I pretty much listen to. Doesn't anyone like CCR here? hehe...
