Best John video clip

Postby Berkeleyan » Tue May 25, 2004 8:01 am

I guess I'm not repeating a thread.

My favorite clip: a tie between "Imagine" (I can bear Ono's prsence in it) and the posthumous " I'm stepping out" (nice parallelism between John's movement sequences and the rhythm of the track).

There aren't many John video clips, right ? I can recall a couple more only, both are posthumous.

Bluebird, the current video clips were called as PROMO FILMS in the 70s, because the VCRs started to appear only at the end of that decade...and the MTV had began in 1981 when the promos turned to VIDEO clips.
"Imagine" was a John´s classic one...did you already see "Stand By Me" and "Slippin´n´Sliddin´"??

With the DVDs now we can call all those promos as VIDEO clips.

The only thing this film miss, are that I think some of the songs could have been where you saw John play them. Example, live or something else.
