The Tube

Postby Coppermine » Fri Dec 01, 2006 11:40 pm

OK, so my digital cable has this music video channel called The Tube. It's all music videos with about 2 commercials every hour. I'm obsessed with it; they play everything. It's not like VH1 Classic which plays old video's from semi-popular bands but of crappy songs that never quite became hits, or MTV2 which now shows nothing but reruns of "Wild Boys."

The Tube is awesome, and even though they play a lot of music I'm not really into, the variety alone, plus my pre-adolescent obsession with music videos makes for non-stop viewing pleasure.

Sounds like a slice of heaven.

I don't think I've actually seen a music video in a good five years, but every now and again I pull out an old mix VHS of MTV's glory days in the early '90s (with a healthy dose of 120 minutes). It's a shame Music Television plays no music...but then, when they do play music, it's craptacular anyway. So maybe it's for the best.

Who are some of the bands they play on the Tube?

Let's just say it takes MTV's "glory days" and bottles it for your enjoyment. As I'm typing this, the Gin Blossoms "Hey Jealousy" is on The Tube.

What's great is it plays new stuff, old stuff and live concerts in a nice mix. It's doesn't really play anything obscure, but it doesn't play anything too mainstream either. I mean it doesn't play country, rap, R&B, or bubble gum pop... there's plenty of that. It's pretty much everything else.

As "Hey Jealousy" ended, a live Eric Clapton (recent) song just came on.
