Yeah, this goes along with my point that videos aren't generally 
good enough to leave a lasting impression.  Thus the teenyboppers 
vote for the songs they like to hear, rather than the vids they like 
to see.  Apart from Primus, who have written a dozen better songs 
than "Wynonna" but just because they dressed up in Energizer toy 
suits the vid made the single sell.  Creative maybe but obviously a 
marketing tool for a perhaps weaker album musically. (c) 1996 Ron

Any ideas why people who make good musical art can't also make good 
visual art?

Or is it just because pop musicians don't make good musical art 
either? <sarcasm>
