3rd Best Video Ever
Only 3 more videos remain in the top 10 video countdown. I have been releasing the top 10 music videos ever and now we come to the 3rd spot in the countdown. This video really rocks and is one of the best videos I have ever seen. This is my 2nd favorite group with only the guys from Guns N’ Roses getting a slight nod over these guys.
Now imagine this, what if you were blind, deaf, had no arms and legs and you couldn’t even speak? You could just imagine how that might feel and just how lost you would be to the rest of the world. This video shows you how that person might feel.
3rd Best Video Ever
This is the song One by Metallica. Metallica’s One is one of the most popular songs they play when the band is on tour. It was the 4th track on the album And Justice For All. The song was written by James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich in November of 1987. The song made it’s way on their 1989 album and has been a big hit every since.
All the fans of Metallica and the music world got to see the debut of this video on MTV. It was shown on January 20, 1989 and the video had raving reviews right from the start. There is parts of a book and movie that you see in the video and the name of that movie is Johnny Got His Gun, which was also the name of the book too. Metallica bought the rights of the movie, so they could use it in their video for the song One. 3 videos were made for One and the one above is the best version. The other versions were shorter and one of them didn’t even have any scenes of the movie in it.
The band didn’t have any of the bright colors and flash like a lot of the heavy metal bands did in the late 80’s. They chose to do this video mainly in black and white and the band was just at a warehouse performing. You can see two of the band members playing ESP Guitars. The bass player is seen early in the video plucking the strings with his fingers and near the end of the video the bass player has a pick. Not sure if that was an error in the video or just the way Metallica wanted to shoot the bass scenes. This was a typical Metallica video in the way it was shot and had that “Metallica feel” to it.
The video was ranked 38th on MTV’s Greatest Videos Ever and finished number 7 on the greatest guitar solos in a song by Guitar World’s Greatest Guitar Songs. I have to give this video much more respect than just a 38th spot and this is definitely one of the top 3 videos of all time!
Congratulations to James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Jason Newsted, and the drummer Lars Ulrich for making it to the 3rd spot in this video countdown! A song that was written 20 years ago is still going strong.Click here for reuse options!
