Remakes are popular in movies but making new (official) music videos aren’t so common. Paul McCartney is re releasing two albums from the eighties and also releases new music video for the song “Say Say Say” featuring Michael Jackson. In the new video there is no appearance from Paul and Michael but the pictures is much more connected to the music. The song sounds fresh with the new video and might find a new audience. The old video is funny but you might as well watch it without the music. The new one is on the other hand nothing without the music.
Halloween is here and the music video that comes to mind is of course “Thriller”. Michael Jackson’s video is perhaps the most famous music video ever and has a strong place in popular culture. The video was made by film director John Landis and the screenplay was done by him together with Michael. With its 13 min-length and storyline it opened up the concept of music videos.
What ever happened to Bubbles? On June 25th 2009 Michael Jackson died. The Swedish group Teddybears pay attation to it by releasing a new video for their song “No More Michael Jackson”. The video gives a picture of how Bubbles’ life is now. Like a metaphor of the emptiness after Michel’s death.
