I really loved this video. Be honest guys. You clicked to see Jim. Don't lie. What do you think should be the future of the German Grand Prix? Even if Hockenheim replaces Miami in 2019 the future of F1 will probably be one without a race in Germany. It would be easy to blame the Formula One business model with anually increasing, astronomically high hosting fees, but the history of F1 in Germany of the past 20 years is one of greed and mismanagement, ultimately making most major events impossible to finance. Consequently high ticket prices caused steadily decreasing attendences, raising the question: Should there even be another German Grand Prix? Apparantly no track can handle it, eventough with every complaint from Hockenheimring and Nürburgring there come the same rumours about other venues having an eye on hosting one for the first time. Even if Liberty Media reworks FOM's business model and the hosting fees would be decreased, the question which track should host the GP isn't answered easily. The Nürburgring could never draw huge crowds and doesn't offer many overtaking opportunities, but is overall a nice oldschool track. The Hockenheimring offers numerous overtaking opportunities but is overall a fairly dull track. There are three other permanent race tracks which are FIA Grade 2 and could be upgraded to F1 standards. So what do you think should be the future of the German Grand Prix? Is there one? Here is an overview over the suitable race tracks in Germany: The Hockenheimring has been the latest track to host the German Grand Prix. Even though there are rumours that the historic venue will return to host the 2019 GP as a replacement for Miami, the 2018 race was most likely the last race in Hockenheim for a long time due to the huge financial risk that the track owners have to take. High hosting fees and high depts from the redesign in 2002 resulted in high ticket prices which then resulted in a lack of attendence making the Grand Prix uneconomical. Situated in the Rhine valley near the town of Hockenheim the track saw its first F1 race in 1970, which was won by Jochen Rindt in a Lotus 72. The circuit is also the annual host to the first and last races of the DTM season. Hockenheimring Stats Opened 29th May 1932 (redesigned in 2002) Owner/Operator Hockenheimring GmbH Capacity 120, 000 Length 4, 574 m Width Min. 15 m Turns 17 Elevation Change nope Longest Straight n/a FIA Grade 1 Fastest Lap (current layout) 1:13. 780 Kimi Raikkönen (2004) Formula 1 Possible modern F1 lap time 1:11. 212 Sebastian Vettel 2018 Ferrari SF71H Laps 67 laps (306. 458 km) The Nürburgring Grand Prix track was built as a reaction to the loss of its F1 license in 1977 when the infamous Nordschleife was deemed too unsafe to host another Grand Prix. The new Grand Prix course was opened in 1984, but hosted only the 1984 and 1985 GP before the F1 circus returned to Hockenheim. Following the Schuhmacher hype of the mid 90s F1 retuned in 1995 to the track in the Eifel mountains for a second Grand Prix in Germany, called the Grand Prix of Europe, which was held there until 2006 (with the exeption of 97 and 98, when the track hosted the Grand Prix of Luxemburg. From the 2007 season onwards the Nürburgring and the Hockenheimring alternated for hosting the German GP. The last Grand Prix was held in 2013. The venue refused to host the planned 2015 GP due to non-financability of a modern GP. In 2012 the circuit filed bankruptcy and was sold in 2014. The current biggest share holder is a russian billionaire. Nürburgring Stats Opened 18th June, 1927 (Grand Prix track on 12th May 1984; last change in 2002) Owner/Operator Russian billionaire Viktor Kharotin; Nürburgring 1927 GmbH & Co.

Originally planned by the GDR government in the 80s as a replacement for the infamous AVUS in Berlin it wasn't until 1998 that construction started. Amidst the Schuhmacher hype the track, which is located near Klettwitz, in the state of Brandenburg, was specifically designed to host Formula One Grand Prixs. However, unsuccessful negotiations with Bernie Eccleston and the modernisations of the Hockenheimring and the Nürburgring resulted in the venue never seeing one. The track is a Tri-Oval with different track configurations in the infield. In 2001 100, 000 visitors saw the German 500 from the american CART series, in which Alessandro Zanardi, a former F1 driver, lost both his lower legs in a crash. The track hosts annual races of DTM and ADAC GT Masters. In 2014 there were plans to bring the venue back to modern F1 standards and redesign the infield section. In 2017, however, the venue was sold to DEKRA planning to use it as a test track. With the exception of DTM no race events are being held there as DEKRA doesn't want to organize events themselves. Mildly interesting: With the right configuration you get a 11. 3 km long-distance track (29 turns, 0. 9 km long straight, not used. Lausitzring Stats Opened 20th August, 2000; closed in 2017 except for DTM Owner/Operator Förderverein Lausitzring e. V.

It is a fast, smooth course which has hosted numerous WTCC, DTM, FIA-GT, F3-Euro and ADAC GT Masters races. The venue was renamed to Motorsport Arena in 2005 after it was sold to the contractor that built the facility, following the bankrupty of the original operating company in 2002. Motorsport Arena Oschersleben Stats Opened 25th July, 1997 (last change in 2007) Owner/Operator Motorsport Arena Oschersleben GmbH Capacity 88, 000 Length 3, 696 m Turns 14 (7 left-handed; 7 right-handed) Width 11 – 13 m Elevation Change 23 m Longest Straight Start/Finish – 700 m FIA Grade 2 Fastest Lap (current layout) 1:17. 084 Fabrizio Crestani (2011) WTCC [1:11. 09 Robert Kubica (inofficial) Formula Renault] Possible modern F1 lap time ca. 1:05 Laps 83 laps (306. 786 km) Once a classic roadcourse, the modern Sachsenring is one of the most popular races of the MotoGP calendar. Situated near the town of Hohenstein-Ernstthal in the state of Saxony the old course was a popular and dangerous road racing venue. Racing continued despite numerous fatal accidents until 1990. After the fall of the Iron Curtain and the availability of more powerful racing machines from the west the track was finally deemed too unsafe for racing. The opening of a ADAC driver training facility including small portions of the old course in 1995 started momentum to make it the new Sachsenring, which opened in 1996. A redesign of the last section, including a dramatic plunging downhill right-hander nicknamed "The Waterfall" aswell as the pit and paddock by Hermann Tilke ahead of the 2001 season meant the track was for the first time fully enclosed and now the fifth and so far last major permanent race track in Germany. The MotoGP race is one of the most popular racing events in Germany. The 2011 race weekend drew a record crowd of 230, 133.

This naturally fueled new speculations around a return of F1 cars to the legendary track. Rumours say that Mercedes is thinking about the feasability of modifying one of their vehicles to take on the Green Hell. As for a Gran Prix Niki Lauda already declined the possibility. The track would need major safety upgrades. The cost of such a rework of the 20 kilometer monstrum was the reason for the construction of the Grand Prix course in the first place. However, Mirco Markfort, head of the Nürburgring operating company, has already approached Liberty media - unsuccessfully. But still, interviews showed that a race on the full Nürburgring would probably be widely supported of the current grid. It would most likely be the biggest racing event in modern Formula One history.

Yes, I have already made a list for listmas. But as i am in a merry mood (I can put off studying until monday:DD) I felt the sudden urge to overshare my own musical taste again. This time Ill put the focus on another genre that was pretty big for me in 2018, jazz. I will also keep up my pretentious act of not ranking these releases. Just know that I claim these ten (technically eleven) releases are better than any dumb jazz you liked from this year (Im joking, I missed a ton of stuff. Tigran Hamasyan - For Gyumri (Folk, Chamber) Tigrans tribute to his hometown in Armenia strays from the standard sounds of American jazz. Its closer to the minimal and atmospheric sounds from Europe like Bugge Wesseltoft and Jan Johansson, but also very reminiscant of the emotional, nostalgic music from Anouar Brahem and (the Israeli) Avishai Cohen. Like Cohen, Hamasyan lets the melody take full control of the music, not being overshadowed by rhythm or complicated contra-points. The melodies themselves are not really simple, but the warmth at which they are played, sung or hummed gives them an inviting and fulfilling feeling. Hamasyan lets the emotional depth of his compositions fully show. One of the years most beautiful releases clocking in at 29 minutes. A relatively long length for an EP (for this year) that is worth checking out for anyone into worldly jazz with a real depth to it. Chosen cut: Self - Portrait Maisha - There is a Place (Spiritual, Fusion) If Im going to take any mainpoint from the few jazz pieces Ive read about last year, it is that 2018 was the year of the London jazz scene. Sons of Kemet got a ton of attention for the brass heavy “afrobeatian” take on modern jazz that was Your Queen is a Reptile. The other big London release was the comp We Out Here, a true show of force (with Maisha delivering the first cut) for the British capitol. My favorite of the London releases was There is a Place. If there is one thing the London scene has done great its making good accessible jazz, this album is no exception. Like their peers Maisha draws heavily from the 70s. In this case from the spiritual jazz of Alice Coltrane and Pharaoh Sanders (in addition to a hefty amount of good old fusion and jazz rock. The music is far from as weird or heavy on the Indian influences as Journey in Satchidananda or Karma, but there is a clear lineage to this album. The same strength and openness to the whole musical world shows, maybe even drawing from musical inspiration even more east than India (I wanna say hear some Japan in here. The album is still modern and has an atmospheric feel more at home today than in 1971, its also recommended for anyone into jazz that takes you somewhere. Chosen cut: Kaa Frode Haltli - Avant Folk (Folk, Chamber, Blues) Hubro has consistently been one of Norways best labels for new and exciting jazz. This year releasing great albums by Moskus, Skadedyr, Skydive Trio and Møster. Haltlis Avant Folk was for me the best of the bunch. Its an album that sticks out on basis of its instrumentation alone, the accordion and a Hardanger fiddle are prominent throughout. As these instruments might imply, Norwegian folk is a huge part of the albums sound, but it never dominates throughout. The music is a mix of influences, and is somewhere between chamber, jazz and folk, with Norwegian in addition to North African, Middle-Eastern and European gypsy sounds showing up. Its truly something youl fall into while listening to it. Without a single spoken word you get to hear a whole story in the music. Two thumbs up. Chosen cut: Neid Thumbscrew - Ours / Theirs (Avant-garde) Thumbscrew are a trio consisting of bassist Michael Formanek, drummer Tomas Fujiwara and guitarist Mary Halvorson. They are all accomplished players in the American avant-garde jazz circuit, Halvorson a former collaborator (and student. of Anthony Braxton. In addition to being a trio they are also all talented as all heck, releasing not one, but two great albums this year. The concept is simple, Ours consists of cuts written by the trios members and Theirs consists of compositions written by others, most of them relatively unknown. Youll find no “Autumn Leaves” or “All Blues”, but rather underappreciated compositions from Stanley Cowell and Julio De Caro. Listening to this something is made clear almost at once, these are three performers that know each other pretty well and the cohesion must be heard to be believed. Creative playing that never goes for something cheap and easy, and a clear statement from three musicians that deserve to become household names in the global jazz community. Chosen cuts: Saturn Way / Effi Angelika Niescier, Christopher Tordini & Tyshawn Sorey - The Berlin Concert (Avant-garde, Free Jazz) Another trio performance. This one a live recording from 2017. This is muscular European jazz in the vein of Niesciers fellow german Peter Brötzmann. She shows an outstanding endurance, not giving any room for you to miss a pianist or guitarist. There is no need for anything more than a bassist and a drummer backing her up. The conversation between the instruments in rhythm and melody makes it impossible to be bored by this album, one of the years most exciting listens. Chosen cut: 5. 8 Andrew Cyrille, Wadada Leo Smith & Bill Frisell - Lebroba (Avant-garde, Spiritual) Three legends of avant-garde jazz banding together to record an immense album. Cyrille, a member of the Cecil Taylor Unit and collaborator with big names like David Murray and Carla Bley to name a few, mans the drums. Wadada Leo Smith, a big name in adventurous jazz since the 70s, plays the trumpet and ECM legend Bill Frisell is on guitar. These are all three experienced musicians that have done their fair part of notable recordings in the past. Getting their breakthrough in separate decades; Cyrille in the 60s with Cecil Taylor, Smith in the 70s and Frisell in the 80s. But what they all have in common is an eternally adventurous approach to jazz. This album is an ECM release, and you can hear the atmospheric approach that you would expect from the german label, but in addition to this you have a great spiritual aspect to it. They even do their own version of an Alice Coltrane number, but it sounds so much more naked and intimate than the fusion-flirting works you might find from the late 60s. There is nothing added to this album beside the three musicians, who still are at the top of their game. Chosen cut: Pretty Beauty The Necks - Body (Avant-garde, Post-Rock) The Necks are a hard band to define. Their music is definitely atmospheric with a heavy focus on rhythm and timbre, but they are still far from the sort ECM product that also could be described as such. The music is closer to some of the more exciting post-rock bands from the 90s with its repetition and building. There even is a section on the track (its a one track album) where they straight up go for electric guitar, making the similarity even more obvious. Calling this album “jazz” might not be totally fitting, but I think the musicianship and improvisation makes it deserving to be on this list. Chris Corsano & Bill Orcutt - Brace Up! Free Rock, Noise Rock) A duo performance from drummer Chris Corsano and guitarist Bill Orcutt. Two exciting and unique players. Orcutt a member of experimental noise rockers Harry Pussy in the 90s and Corsano an experienced improvisator having worked with Evan Parker, Björk and Jim ORourke to name some. The music is exciting, improvised rock with Orcutt fully utilizing distortion, bringing to mind fun noise rock like that of fellow duos Lightning Bolt and Hella. Besides the distortion there isnt much done to make the music more accessible, giving it a naked feeling like that of Albert Ayler. This is free jazz as done by a noise rock duo, highly recommended! Chosen cut: Double Bind The End - Svårmod och vemod är värdesinnen (Avant-garde, Jazz-Rock) This is an album that brings together a great group of different musicians. Kjetil Møster, a baritone saxophonist that has worked with every living Norwegian musician (only barely hyperbolic, he has worked with Sondre Lerche, Enslaved and Röyksopp in just the last years) joins forces with fellow reedist Mats Gustafsson, another baritone saxophonist and also current free jazz superstar. With them is experimental rock guitarist Anders Hana and drummer Greg Saunier from Deerhoof. The most unknown member of the group is singer Sofia Jernberg who trust me, also has her jazz credentials in order. The music itself is entertaining and adventurous bringing to mind influences from free jazz, krautrock and noise in just the first minute alone. Jernberg takes the music to the next level with her showstopping performance, being able to sound like shes dying before going into beautiful phrasing like that of Julie Andrews. There is also a decent amount of noise and industrial elements making it all even more diverse. Possibly the years most daring album. Chosen cut: Dont Wait Mary Halvorson - Code Girl (Avant-garde, Indie) An epic album that still manages to sound small and personal. One and a half hours of groundbreaking, modern jazz fitting for our indie-focused years of rock music. Joining her is her accomplices in Thumbscrew, Michael Formanek and Tomas Fujiwara. But adding to the already big pool of talent is trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire and singer Amirtha Kidambi. Halvorson and crew does not go for the obvious, there are no simple melodies dominating, but also nothing so determined at being abrasive that it gets grating. Theres a good balance, and they stay on the line for the entire run time. Amazingly the album does not get boring or tiring, its a true statement of excellence for the quintet. Chosen cut: Thunderhead Honorable mentions: Kris Davis & Craig Taborn - Octopus Møster. States of Minds Jachna, Mazurkiewicz & Buhl - Gods Body Full Blast - Rio Chris Pitsiokos Unit - Silver Bullet in the Autumn Thank you for reading. Im happy to talk about any jazz album I have missed, or that you are angry for not being on my list. As I said there is a ton of stuff from the year i did not get to hear and im always happy to talk more about this great kind of music.
He did say come in though.

The tour began in Phoenix, Arizona on March 1, 2018, at the Talking Stick Resort Arena, and concluded on November 2, 2019, in Austin, Texas at the Circuit of the Americas. It became the second highest-grossing tour of all time by a female solo artist and the tenth highest-grossing tour of all time, earning 397. 3 million and selling over 3 million tickets.  Development [ edit] A second promotional poster for the tour was used to promote the 2019 shows in North America, Europe, and South America. After the end of the successful The Truth About Love Tour (which was the third best-selling tour of 2013 with 147. 9 million in ticket revenue) 5] and the release of the album rose ave. with Canadian singer-songwriter Dallas Green under the name You+Me, 6] Pink took a break. However, during this time, she released some songs, including " Today's the Day " on September 10, 2015, used as a theme song for season 13 of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and " Just like Fire " on April 15, 2016, for the soundtrack to the 2016 film Alice Through the Looking Glass.  8] On August 10, 2017, the lead single " What About Us " was released.  On October 4, 2017, Pink announced she would release an Apple Music documentary about the recording of her anticipated seventh studio album Beautiful Trauma, later released on October 13. The following day, she announced the tour, revealing tour dates in North America. Originally, the singer has planned to play 40 shows, but due to high demand, second dates in Chicago, Toronto, New York City, Boston, Washington, D. C., Houston, Dallas and Oakland were later added.  On October 9, 2017, she announced 17 dates in Australia and New Zealand.  However, due to overwhelming demand, new shows were added, bringing the total number to 42 shows in Oceania. On May 3, 2018, after incredible success and demand, Pink announced a second North American leg starting in 2019, including rescheduled shows for Detroit and Montreal, following previous postponements, due to illness.  On October 16, 2018, Pink revealed the European dates, which are scheduled between June and August 2019.  These shows will take place in stadiums instead of arenas like the previous dates on this tour.  Second dates were added in Cologne, Munich and Glasgow, due to high demand; additional dates in Oslo, Horsens, Gelsenkirchen and The Hague were later announced. She announced a show in Rio de Janeiro, as part of 2019 Rock in Rio festival; this concert will be her first performance in Brazil.  On April 18, 2019, it was announced that Pink will headline the 2019 Formula One United States Grand Prix Concert Series in Austin.  Pink later announced that she had to reschedule her May 2019 Toronto shows due to illness. The new dates are set to take place in August after the European leg of the tour. Along with the rescheduled dates, Pink announced a concert in Uniondale, New York at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum. Critical response [ edit] North America [ edit] Ed Masley from The Arizona Republic, who was at the first show of the tour which took place in Phoenix, wrote that "the whole thing was brilliantly staged, with bright colors, interpretive dancing and plenty of high-flying spectacle. If for some reason, you believe you've seen another artist put more time and effort into doing acrobatics high above the crowd, you may just be thinking of Cirque du Soleil. 17] Jimmie Tramel of Tulsa World reviewed positively the concert on March 5, 2018, in Tulsa. He said "Wow. That's really the only word necessary to describe Pink's concert Monday night at the BOK Center. 18] Omaha World-Herald staff writer Kevin Coffey attended and reviewed the concert in Lincoln, stating that Pink has "set the bar very, very high" and that "her contemporaries should buy a ticket, sit in the back and take notes. That's how it should be done. 19] Also L. Kent Wolgamott attended the same show and wrote another positive review for Journal Star, saying that "More than years ago, she delivered the best show in the first year of Pinnacle Bank Arena. On Tuesday night, she did it again with another singing/dancing/flying spectacle that. not only sets the bar for concerts, it is the bar. He also praised Pink's stage presence: When she wasn't flying around, Pink was in constant motion on the stage, joining her 10 dancers in tightly choreographed routines, slapping hands with audience members and basking in the spotlights. 20] Kirstine Walton of National Rock Review reviewed the first show in Chicago, stating that "Each time you see P! nk you wonder what new elements she can bring to the performance, but each time she raises the bar yet again. Not only does she make the entire performance appear to be effortless, she truly looks like she is having the time of her life on the stage. She also noticed the connection between Pink and her tour crew, adding that "the respect and camaraderie for her band and dancers is clearly evident throughout, taking the time to name everyone individually, providing each of them their moment in the spotlight in turn. 21] The second show at Madison Square Garden in New York City was reviewed positively by Bobby Olivier of, who defined the Beautiful Trauma World tour "the tour to beat in 2018. He also wrote that Pink is "a terrific live vocalist with a list of radio hits so long that she cannot fit them all into a single set while still giving space to songs from a new album. 22] After the show in Boston on April 9, Marc Hirsh from Boston Globe, about Pink's performances, stated that "None of this is new, of course. But the fact remains that no other pop star is even attempting this sort of thing, so to watch Pink do it and keep singing remains as astonishing as when she first added literal acrobatics without a harness or net to her arsenal years ago. 23] The concert in Atlanta was reviewed positively by Melissa Ruggieri from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, who defined it "nearly two hours of unabashed fun. She also praised Pink as a person as well as an entertainer: The fact that Pink does it all with a sly smile and potent, husky vocals is a tribute to her stamina, dedication and obvious joy at being onstage. She's also a down-to-earth presence to her fans, spending plenty of time laying on the catwalk floor to take selfies, acknowledging signs and accepting a gift for her 16-month-old son, Jameson. Pink has all the right moves. She's genuine, she's entertaining, she's a fantastic singer. And she's already the front-runner for the best concert of 2018. 24] Matthew Keever wrote a positive review for Houston Press about the show which took place on April 27, stating that "For nearly two hours, P! NK entertained a throng of enthusiastic fans with her soaring vocals, catchy choruses and high-flying acrobatics. 25] Another positive review was written by Jim Harrington from Mercury News, who attended the show in Oakland. He said that "the pop superstar basically hits the crowd with everything she's got, and then some, for roughly two hours. There's pyrotechnics, aerial stunts, dance routines, hit songs, catchy banter and, yes, one giant, inflatable Eminem. He also added that Pink is. all about exceeding expectations, pleasing the fans and delivering an equally encompassing and entertaining concert experience. And she definitely achieves her mission with her latest road show. 26] Mikael Wood, regarding the show that took place in Anaheim, wrote a positive review for Los Angeles Times. In particular, he praised Pink's choice about the setlist: yet for all Pink's razzle-dazzle — and let me be clear in saying that this new aerial stunt was truly astounding — the primary effect of Friday's production wasn't practical or technological but emotional. You left the gig feeling as if you had been spoken to from the heart, which in a room as big as this one might be the more impressive feat. her hit singles from the last two decades put across an idea of timelessness; she's still taking a broadly universal approach. 27] Oceania [ edit] The first show in Oceania was reviewed positively by Ross McRae, who defined Pink's tour "her best yet" due to "the perfect mix of choreography, visuals, aerial acrobatics, pyrotechnics, novelty, sass and yes, that soaring voice that rises above any notion that she is just a robot on autopilot. 28] Aziz Al-Sa'afin from Newshub attended one of the shows in Sydney and ended his review stating that "when it was over, I wanted more. I could have happily sat through another two hours of what I had just experienced. He also wrote that "P! nk is not just a singer-song writer - she's also a dancer, trapeze artist and comedian. 29] The first show in Brisbane was reviewed by Daniel Johnson of Courier-Mail, who stated that "with an eight-piece backing band and ten dancers, and several set changes, the Beautiful Trauma tour is a musical, visual and theatrical extravaganza that redefines what can be done with an arena pop show. 30] Another positive review was made by Bridget Jones for: up, down, front, back, left and right, Pink was everywhere, doing everything. Every move, every comment, and every song her fans wanted to hear - she performed about 20 of them throughout the spectacular performance - she took the audience on a wee journey from her early days as the bad girl of pop. through to her more recent hits. In addition, Pink's charisma was defined "unmatched. 31] Commercial performance [ edit] The first official boxscore from the tour was published on March 14, 2018, denoting superior numbers to The Truth About Love Tour. The show in Wichita at Intrust Bank Arena grossed 1, 647, 788 with 11, 894 attendees, numbers superior to any single concert revenue of her previous tours in the country.  The first leg of the North American part of the tour grossed 95, 657, 338 with an attendance of 691, 247 over the first 46 dates of the tour.  Pink was the top earning artist for March 2019, grossing 30, 082, 031 with 207, 979 attendees from 15 shows in her second leg of North America.  Set list [ edit] This set list is from the show in Chicago on March 9, 2018. It may not represent all concerts for the duration of the tour.  Notes [ edit] During the March 20, 2018, show in Toronto, Pink was joined by Dallas Green onstage to perform "You and Me" from their joint album, rose ave. (2014. 36] During the May 31, 2018, show in Los Angeles, Pink was joined by Gwen Stefani onstage in a joint surprise performance of "Just a Girl. 37] For Now" was not performed at selected dates.

The michaels take on europe watch full length without. Michael Jackson, one of the most, if not the most influential, pop star of all time, was also the king when talking about music videos. Referred by him as ‘short films ever since 1983, his work transformed the music video into an art form and a promotional tool through complex story lines, dance routines, special effects and famous cameo appearances, simultaneously breaking down racial barriers. His videos became some of the most acclaimed, awarded and recognized of all time, however his legacy has been somewhat diluted by the accusations against his persona (please lets not go there) or because hes been dead for almost 10 years… however he doesnt deserve to have his video output being referred to as just ‘pop videos while Lady Gagas (who I love) videos gets to be considered as ‘art films as some people in here seems to believe. This is why I decided to do this write-up, which would take a look at 20 highlights of the King of Pops videography, which is so iconic that MTV didnt have other choice than to call their Video Vanguard Award after Michael, as it should be. If youre a Moonwalker you might not learn anything new from this post, but this is instead dedicated to those who might only know Jackson for a couple of songs or even superficially, and I hope it can help them to appreciate the King of Pops musical output and gigantic influence all around. Can You Feel It (1980. Short Version) by The Jacksons 5 directed by Bruce Gowers and Robert Abel (Let the Good Times Roll, Elvis on Tour) The video concept, conceived by Michael, featuring remarkable special effect by Robert Abel and Associates (Tron, The Andromeda Strain) is more of a short film than a video per se, and as such if you hate those videos in which the sound effects and dialogues happens to be mixed louder than the music (which also gets interrupted by the narrative) then youre going to hate this video… but I would recommend watching it because its pure post-Star Wars sci-fi cheese. Titled The Triumph, the short film features narration by Ken Nordine and a plot that includes the brothers as a group of super-powered neon aliens arriving in earth and using their psychedelic glitter powers to enlighten the world and something about peacock feathers inside a floating bubble… I dont know what this video is about but its really nice to look at and the instrumental works surprisingly well as part of the score. Billie Jean (1982. Motown 25 performance, Pepsi Generation commercial) directed by Steve Barron (Totos Africa, A-has Take on Me, 1990s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie) Two years after the creation of MTV, the channel was mostly known to play rock music videos, leaving aside several of the black performers of the time. Walter Yetnikoff, the president of Jackson's record company CBS Records, approached MTV about playing the short film (Michael started to refer to music videos as that) which MTV had not ever played in spite of Jackson's success as a musical artist. Yetnikoff became enraged when MTV refused to play the short, and he threatened to go public with MTV's stance on racial discrimination. MTV relented and played the short in heavy rotation, leading the parent album Thriller to sell an additional 10 million copies, and brought MTV into the mainstream, as they switched to more pop and R&B in order to accompany their newfound success. The short film features Jackson followed by a paparazzo while on his way to Billie Jeans place, in a setting that includes glowing tiles, surreal-looking sets and dance moves for an eternity. Billie Jean ‘s short film has been ranked among the best of the decade and all time, including placing at 35th in a list compiled by MTV and Time Magazine at the turn of the millennium. The performance in Motown 25 earned Michael an Emmy nomination and was complimented by the likes of Fred Astaire and Sam Davis Jr., while also being considered one of the most iconic TV moments of all time for a number of publications. Beat It (1983) directed by Bob Giraldi (Pat Benatars Love is a Battlefield, Lionel Richies Hello) starring Michael Peters, Vincent Paterson (both lead choreographers) with Michael DeLorenzo and Guns N Roses Tracii Guns Financed by Michael himself for 150, 000 (315, 144 in current dollars) after CBS Records refused to make more video releases for the album, the short film helped to establish Michael as an international pop star, and established several of the motifs that his later releases would delve into, like massive choreographies and treatment/inclusion of his blackness as an essential element of the release. The short film was filmed on Los Angeles' Skid Row and features actual members of the LA gangs Crips and the Bloods, both in order to add authenticity and to foster peace among them; in addition to around 80 gang members, 18 professional dancers and 4 break-dancers, opening several opportunities for dancers across the US. Director Bob Giraldi came up with the concept of the video, which is not based on West Side Story (although it takes some cues from the fight scenes) but rather in Giraldis growing up in Paterson, New Jersey. The short film, in which Jackson establishe speace among the gangs through the power of dance, had its world premiere on MTV and was NBC's Friday Night Videos first video ever shown. The American Music Awards named the short film their Favorite Pop/Rock Video and their Favorite Soul Video. The Black Gold Awards honored Jackson with the Best Video Performance award. The Billboard Video Awards recognized the video with 7 awards; Best Overall Video Clip, Best Performance by a Male Artist, Best Use of Video to Enhance a Song, Best Use of Video to Enhance an Artist's Image, Best Choreography, Best Overall Video and Best Dance/Disco 12. Thriller (1983. shortened version, making of) directed by John Landis (The Blues Brothers, An American Werewolf in London) featuring Ola Ray and Vincent Price This is it chief! The G. O. A. T. of music videos… anyone who denies that is a delusional stan. After the albums sales started to fall in sales, Jackson contacted Landis and conceived a short film more elaborated than usual, with his record label refusing to finance it considering the album had already peaked. Using a making-of documentary as a hook to grab financing, both MTV and Showtime agree to finance a big portion of the million dollars budget (2, 515, 536 in current dollars) with Jackson loaning the remainder of the budget of the short, in which Jackson and his girlfriend are confronted by zombies while walking home from a movie theater, with a dance routine, a meta narrative and a twist ending that would made Shyamalan proud. Academy Award winner Rick Baker designed the make up with fellow winner Elmer Bernstein (The Magninicent Seven, Cape Fear) doing the score; the iconic red jacket worn by Michael was created by costume designer and Landis wife Deborah Nadoolman (Raiders of the Lost Ark. The disclaimer at the beginning was added as a way to dissuade Michael into releasing the project, as he feared the short film would put him in a bad standing with his religious group, the Jehovahs Witness. The short film premiered in MTV on December of 1983, and it played, in its peak, once per hour, with advertisements before each airing aiding to the channel to register 10 times as much audience as normal; the short film was sold on VHS and its currently the bestselling music video of all time with over 9 million units, while also doubling the sales of the album Thriller, helping it become history's bestselling album; It is credited for transforming music videos into a serious art form, breaking down racial barriers in popular entertainment, and popularizing the making-of documentary format. Normally considered the best video of all time in almost every list or compilation, Thriller was the first music video to be selected for the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress. Thriller also won two Grammys (Best Long Form Video and Best Video Album) and 3 VMAs (it somehow lost Best Video) out of 6 nominations. Bad (1987. shortened version) directed by Martin Scorsese (do I really need to tell you who is this. featuring Wesley Snipes A short film 18 minutes in length, the first single of the same-titled album was shot in a 6-week period over 8 months before its release and was heavily inspired by West Side Story, telling the story of a teenager (Jackson) trying to prove to the gang he once used to belong that he is still “bad” after he comes back from a stay in a private school. The full version of the short film premiered in a CBS special in August 1987 with a shortened version playing normally in video shows and channels. The short film received a nomination for choreography at the 1988 MTV Video Music Awards Ceremony, but it lost against The Pleasure Principle by his sister Janet. With a budget of 2, 200, 000 (4, 851, 728 in current dollars) it certainly kick started the era in a high note. The Way You Make Me Feel (1987. shortened version) directed by Joe Pitka (The Beatles Free as a Bird, Space Jam) featuring Tatiana Thumbtzen, Joe Seneca and LaToya Jackson A very sexual short film, it features Jackson as man that tries to be “himself” in order to win the attention of a good-looking lady, and it happens to be that being “himself” implicates dancing as only Michael could do it. Any video with features a fire hydrant spraying out water as a sexual metaphor is immediately a highlight in anyones videography, as in Michaels case it was designed to show off a more flirtatious and romantic yet still edgy side of him. With a very slick cinematography and some impressive choreography, its a shame the video is not as rewarded, considering it shared a VMA nomination with Bad and it lost against a Janet Jackson video. Man in the Mirror (1988) directed by Don Wilson Notable for not featuring Michael himself (a first for his short films) for most of its running time, Man in the Mirror features a montage of footage of various major news events and famous people, from children in Africa, Martin Luther King Jr., Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, kids in graduation, and others. In contrast to Michael's other short films of the Bad era, Man of the Mirror tells a story not through performance, but through powerful images of oppression, homelessness, hunger, police brutality and other ills of the world, as well as events and leaders of the 20th century whose work is reflective of the song's message to " make that change. Smooth Criminal (1988. shortened version) directed by Colin Chilvers featuring Joe Pesci, Sean Lennon and Brandon Adams Smooth Criminal is the centerpiece of the short film compilation Moonwalker and it focuses on Michael fighting against a drug dealer who wants to make everyone in the world addicted (it was the 80s for crying out loud. with the full 40-minutes version including a scene in which Michael transforms into a spaceship. Oh, and also theres a couple of children who are Michaels friends and get in the way of the drug dealer for some reason. The crazy and over-the-top video features Jackson wearing a Fred Astaire-esque suit and a Godfather-inspired dance scene which includes an anti-gravity lean (co-patented by Jackson) which has become one of Jacksons signature moves and one of the most imitated dance moves of all time. The short film won Best Music Video at the 1989 Brit Awards and the Critic's Choice awarded Jackson the "Best Video" award and the People's Choice Awards for Favorite Music Video for that same year. Moonwalker (1988) directed by Jerry Kramer A short film anthology compilation, Moonwalker is an exercise in surrealness and, to be honest, vanity, featuring a series of segments that also doubles as Bads promotional short films, that are meant to represent the different stages in Jackson's career, based on his own view of how his fans idolized him rather than listening to the messages he wanted to say with his music. It starts with a live version of Man in the Mirror live from Wembley Stadium, followed by a 10-minutes long Retrospective documentary about Michaels life and a parody video called Badder. The interesting segments, outside of the 40-minutes version of Smooth Criminal, are: Speed Demon: a continuation of the Badder segment, in which an adult Jackson tried to hide from a group of overzealous fans in a ridiculous chase that ends with everyone turning into Claymation and Jackson having a dance-off with a bunny costume. Leave Me Alone: An animated video in which Michael criticizes the way the media has turned his life into an spectacle, portraying it as an amusement park; it is meant to point out, in a mocking tone, the way the media and his fans have unnecessarily sensationalized his life, with the former being portrayed with dog heads in order to drive the point further. The legendary chimpanzee Bubbles has a cameo in the video. Come Together: The short film is a coda of Smooth Criminal, in which Jackson comes back to the club featured in the previous short and performs the Beatles cover for the kids that previously joined him in his adventure to stop Pablo Escobar Joe Pesci from drugging the world. The song would not be officially released until 4 years later as a B-Side and until 1995 as an album cut. With a combined budget of 22, 000, 000 (46, 697, 836 in current dollars) the anthology was given a limited theatrical release (although a wider international release gathered over 67 million dollars) in the US with a wider VHS/Laserdisc following after, but it hasnt been officially released on DVD/Blu-ray ever since due to complicated film and music licensing, although a region-free version exists overseas. The Leave Me Alone short film aired as a separate entity and won a Grammy in 1990 for Breakthrough Animated Video, which is the only Grammy Award Jackson received for the album Bad. Leave Me Alone video also won the Cannes Gold Lion Award for Best Special Effects. Liberian Girl (1989) directed by Jim Yukich featuring 30+ celebrities, most likely to be recognized by r/Popheads are Brigitte Nielsen, Paula Abdul, Whoopi Goldberg, Quincy Jones, Rosanna Arquette, Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta, Steven Spielberg, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Don King, Dan Aykroyd, David Copperfield, Richard Dreyfuss, Danny Glover and, of course, Bubbles. One of the greatest examples of a celebrity-laden video, Liberian Girl features over 30 celebrities gathered together on a soundstage at Michaels request to shot the music video of the song, only for them getting a little bit desperate that Michael himself hasnt showed up… until the plot twist reveals that Michael was behind the camera all along filming them. Also, even up to this day, no one knows who the guy who plays the mummy is… a more interesting mystery than Corbin Bleus Wikipedia page count. Black or White (1991. shortened version, original ending) directed by John Landis featuring Macaulay Culkin, Tess Harper, George Wendt, Tyra Banks, Khrystyne Haje, Glen Chin, Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter, Cree Summer and Bart and Homer Simpson (uncensored version only) Michaels return featured one of his most extravagant and controversial short films ever. The first part features a kid (Culkin) who decides to take revenge against his father for forbidding him to play his guitar aloud and for damaging his Michael Jackson poster by using said guitars maximum volume to send him flying far away through the sheer power of rock music; the second portion features said father arriving in Africa and seeing Michael dancing around the world and close to multiples landmarks and cultures, with the ending using the morphing techniqueto a group of floating heads to showcase how were not so different after all; the last segment, which was censored after release, includes a black panther morphing back into Michael, who dances provocatively and smashes everything around him, with Homer and Bart Simpson having a quick cameo at the end of the short film to chill out the mood a little bit. The short film premiered on MTV, BET, VH1, and Fox (giving them their highest Nielsen ratings ever at the time) as well as the BBC's Top of the Pops in the UK and other 25 countries on November 14, 1991, gathering an audience of 500 million people, the most ever for a music video. The last four minutes of the short were heavily controversial, and were the subject of edition and censorship all over the world, with the availability of the original video being a little bit scarce as two uncensored version exists, including one that adds racist graffitis to justify the senseless destruction at the end. Arguably one of Jacksons most surreal short films (and one of his most expensive, with a budget of 4, 000, 000, or 7, 357, 928 in current dollars) Black or White is still one of the most unfairly maligned and most botched Jackson releases of all time. Remember the Time (1992. shortened version, More Dangerous Than Ever behind the scenes) directed by John Singleton (Boyz n the Hood, Poetic Justice) featuring Eddie Murphy, Iman, The Pharcyde, Magic Johnson and Tom Lister Jr. Another ambitious big-budget short film, this time with a more concise storyline but still the same impressive visual effects work. In Remember the Time, Jackson plays a mysterious magician in the Ancient Egypt who tries to impress and entertain the bored Pharaohs wife… however, Michaels actions leads to the Pharaoh to ask for his death and for Jackson to run for his life. Made with a budget of 2, 000, 000 (3, 570, 785 in current dollars) the boundaries-pushing short film was hailed as a "gorgeous ancient Egyptian extravaganza" by Entertainment Weekly. Who Is It (1993) directed by David Fincher (Madonnas Vogue, Fight Club, The Social Network) Executed with millimetric precision and the usual visual flair you can get to expect from the Oscar nominated filmmaker, the short film for Who Is It features a slick storyline in which Michael discovers that his lover, who is moonlighting as a call girl, is not who might seems to be. Although the short film didnt get that much attention in the US, the songs international success ensured that this video didnt get buried among the plethora of Dangerous short films, which would be a shame because this is among my favorite Jackson short films. Scream (1995) with Janet Jackson directed by Mark Romanek (Johnny Cashs Hurt, Madonnas Bedtime Stories, Jay-Zs 99 Problems) With a budget of 7, 000, 000 (11, 533, 786 in current dollars) the largest for any music video, the lead single for HIStory started with a strong foot. Featuring his sister Janet in their first collaboration since 1982, the short film of Scream was meant to complement the songs message against the media who misrepresented and unfairly attacked Jackson, with both of the Jackson sibling inhabiting a spaceship thats getting away from earth, and then playing with the bizarre gravity around them, dancing their asses off and toying with the technology around them, among other things, in order to distract themselves and release all of the tension they accumulated back on earth. The concept, conceived by Romanek instead of Jackson as usual for his short films, give us one of the most influential Michaels releases of his already illustrious career, with the likes of Chris Brown, Tyga and Ciara (among others) heavily borrowing from the choreography style and/or the black-and-white aesthetics at some point in their careers. The short film premiered on MTV on the summer of 1995 and the day after its release was included in Diane Sawyers Primetime interview with Jackson, which was seen by over 64 million people in the US. Scream remains the most nominated video at the VMAs, when it was nominated for 11 categories (including Video of the Year, Best R&B Video, Breakthrough Video, Best Direction, Best Special Effects, Best Editing, Best Editing and Viewers Choice) winning for Best Dance Video, Best Choreography and Best Art Direction, losing most of its big nominations against TLCs Waterfalls (something that Michael was OK with) the short film also won the Billboard Music Award for Best Pop/Rock video and the Grammy for Best Music Video, Short Form. Earth Song (1995) directed by Nick Brandt (Mobys Porcelain, Jewels Hands) Another expensive short film, Earth Song portrays Michael as his most conscious, showing images of animal cruelty, deforestation, pollution, poaching, poverty and war, ending with Jackson and the world's people uniting in a spiritual chant which summons a force that heals the world, reversing time so that life returns, war ends and the forests regrow. The short film, which closes with a request for donations to Jackson's Heal the World Foundation, was shown infrequently in the United States, probably because it hit way too close to home. Shot on four locations around the globe (the Amazon rainforests, a Croatians war zone, Tanzania and New York) the short incorporates intricate locations, cinema verite elements and strong imagery, which might not be too subtle but it accomplishes what its trying to do. The short film won the 1995 Doris Day Music Award at the Genesis Awards and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Music Video, Short Form in 1997. They Don't Care About Us (1996. Brazil version, Prison version) directed by Spike Lee (Malcolm X, BlacKkKlansman) featuring Olodum (in the Brazil version) For the first time in his career, Jackson made two short films for the same track, both directed by the same person: The Brazil version was shot in a historic neighbor in Salvador and a favela in Rio de Janeiro against the protest of local officers and politicians, who feared that Michael would bring unwanted negative perception of Brazils economic status and hurt both their tourism and future Olympics hosting chances. After some resilience, Jackson was allowed to shot on the area, with the short film showing Jackson among a crowd of local Brazilians performing the track. This is the most widely known short film of the song. The Prison version was filmed in a prison with cell mates, with footage of Jackson performing the track intercepted with real footage of police attacking African Americans, the military crackdown of the protest in the Tiananmen Square, the Ku Klux Klan, war crimes, genocide, execution, martial law, and other human rights abuses. This version rarely to never play on television but, in my opinion, is the superior version because it drives the message of the song better. Stranger in Moscow (1996) directed by Nick Brandt The short film used to accompany this tender ballad was shot in Los Angeles, and features six unrelated persons who lives in isolation while everything else around them moves at a different speed: a bald man looking down at the city from his apartment window, a middle-aged woman sitting alone in a coffee shop, a homeless man lying on the damp street, a well-dressed man feeding pigeons, a teenage boy ostracized from a street game of baseball, and Jackson himself; when rain strikes upon, the strangers see how everyone tries unsuccessfully to run from it before they themselves decide to embrace it. Following the tracks themes of alienation and loneliness, the short film features a visual technique that predicts and precedes by three years the legendary bullet time effect used in the Matrix saga. Jackson's biographer J. Randy Taraborrelli, has stated that the video is based on Jackson's real life. “ He used to walk alone at night looking for new friends, even at the peak of his musical popularity. The 1980s saw him become deeply unhappy; Jackson explained, ‘Even at home, I'm lonely. I sit in my room sometimes and cry. It's so hard to make friends. I sometimes walk around the neighborhood at night, just hoping to find someone to talk to. But I just end up coming home. Ghosts (1996. short version) directed by Stan Winston Special effects guru Stan Winston (Terminator, Jurassic Park, Aliens, and Predator) directed this short film, the longest music video of all time, with a script which includes collaborations by horror maestro Stephen King and Mick Garris (Hocus Pocus) with a long gestating production history and a budget of 15, 000, 000 (24, 006, 405 in current dollars) making it unofficially the most expensive video of all time, all coming from Jacksons own pockets. Using the songs 2 Bad (from HIStory) and Is It Scary (alongside the title track, both from the Blood on the Dance Floor remix album) the 39-minutes long short film tells the story of a scary Maestro with supernatural powers, who is being forced out of a small town by its mayor, with dialogue and plot elements that mirrors Jacksons own persecution by the media and the unknowing public. The short film premiered on the Cannes Festival of 1996 in an unfinished version and was given screening in select showings of the film Thinner (based on Kings novel) and in Australian cinemas before the local leg of Michaels tour on the region. Unfortunately, the film remains quite obscure, as it was given a small release as part of a box set (in Europe) at the end of the promotional campaign for the remix album Blood on the Dance Floor with the exclusive single On the Line, and as a Laserdisc/VHS/Video CD with limited availability elsewhere, without a release in DVD/Blu-ray on sight. You Rock my World (2001. shortened version) directed by Paul Hunter (Britney Spears Me Against the Music, Christina Aguileras Lady Marmalade, Mariah Careys Honey) featuring Marlon Brando, Chris Tucker, Michael Madsen and Billy Drago Another comeback, another extravagant short film. Lasting for 13 minutes in the full version, the short focuses on two men (Jackson and Tucker) who tries to attract the attention of a woman by following her into her neighborhood, before they realized theyre getting into unwanted territory. Reusing choreography from the discarded Dangerous video, You Rock my World features some of the most insane cinematic values you could expect from a “music video”, with the video style and visual recalling such classics as Smooth Criminal, Bad and The Way You Make Me Feel, although feeling modern and current while also keeping a timeless aesthetic in it. The video won an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Music Video at the award shows 2002 ceremony. This is It (2009) directed by Spike Lee From all of Jacksons posthumous “videos”, this is the most powerful and the only one that doesnt feel like fan pandering, so I decided to include it. Made as a tie-in to the concert documentary of the same name about Jacksons tour that was cut short for obvious reasons. The video, almost five-minutes long, features various scenes of Jackson's hometown and former residence in Gary, Indiana, along with archival footage from him, tributes from his fans around the world and original footage (more interestingly, a road sign close to Jacksons home with the phrase ‘stop hatin written over it) serving as a poignant tribute to the performer and as a nice substitute as Jackson himself never performed the song. This is It is the perfect coda for Jacksons career and nothing can change my mind about it. WHAT TO WATCH NEXT If you wanna get more involved in Jacksons videography, here are a couple of recommendations that YouTube might not be able to properly satisfy: Dangerous – The Short Films: A DVD featuring all of 9 short films from the Dangerous era, alongside televised performances and appearances from the era and behind the scenes. Michael Jackson's This Is It: If you havent watched the documentary about the rehearsals and behind the scenes of the cancelled tour then youre really missing out… anyone who have ever doubted of Jacksons talent should watch this film as soon as possible. Michael Jackson's Vision: Although it might not have the greatest of the qualities, most of Jacksons videos are included here, including a couple of rarities. Bad 25: A documentary directed by Spike Lee for the 25th anniversary of the album, featuring making of footage from the albums production and interviews with people involved in the process and other artists influenced by Jackson. Two things: if a missed a video you might like, Im truly sorry… also, if you try to argue [insert r/Popheads fave] has a better videography than Jackson, Im also sorry for you but if this post didnt changed you mind nothing will cure you from the delusion.
