Video Ga Ga
So what's going on with music channels these days? Channel [v] only plays hindi music. MTV has started showing hindi films, reality shows, more reality shows, and if you're lucky, a rerun of one of those reality shows. And Vh1, the only saving grace for international music lovers at one time, is now showing films, America's Got Talent and promos for every forthcoming hindi blockbuster. Is this really the death of the international music video? Is You Tube our only option to catch Lady Gaga hard-selling everything from Diet Coke to Wonderbread and Miracle Whip? Must we go through Alka, Sonu and Bappi to get to Goldfrapp? I used to be in love with music channels. We had a great relationship. But sadly, it's all over now cause they're just not playing my song.
