  1. 1. Iconic Music Video Stills By Jasmine
  2. 2. Elvis Presley-Hound Dog (1956) <ul><li>This shot was taken from Elvis Presley's Hound Dog music video on the Ed Sullivan Show. His dance moves, quiff and guitar playing are world-renowned even today. </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Beatles-Hey Jude (1968) This music video was released at a very important time during the career of The Beatles. It was just after John Lennon had split from his first wife Cynthia. Not many people know but the song was actually written for Lennon’s son Julian, in comfort, by Paul McCartney and was originally called Hey Jules
  4. 4. Michael Jackson-Thriller (1984) <ul><li>This was such a long music video (14 minutes) that it was considered a short film. Michael Jackson’s Thriller has been such a huge influence on the media industry that many inter-textual references have been made towards it the most recent of which was seen in Britney Spears’ I wanna Go music video. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Michael Jackson Smooth Criminal (1988) <ul><li>This song is most famous for this scene where Michael Jackson tips to the side on his toes and for the gangster style costumes. It was, in fact, the theme tune for Jackson’s Moonwalker film and appeared in its fifth segment. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Whitney Houston-I will always love you (1992) <ul><li>This song was one of the biggest hits of Whitney Houston’s career and was sung for her film The Bodyguard. It spent 14 weeks at the top of the Single charts which at the time, was a record both for her and the Music Industry. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Celine Dion-My Heart will go on (1997) <ul><li>This song was the theme tune for Titanic and is recognised all over the world and is probably the biggest hit song of Dion’s career. Not to mention that it was also the biggest selling single of 1998. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Britney Spears-…Baby one more time (1998) <ul><li>This song and video are hugely iconic in the Pop genre therefore it’s no wonder Spears has been crowned as the Princess of Pop. In 2010 this video was voted as the third most influential Pop Music Video of all time. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Kylie Minogue- Can’t get you out of my head (2001) <ul><li>The red and white colour scheme of this music video, the iconic dress she wore here and the head movement within this song are well remembered as famous Kylie symbols. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Destiny’s Child-Bootylicious (2001) <ul><li>The suggestive lyrics and dancing teamed with provocative outfits led this song to create modern controversy in a time where female sexuality was not so overtly displayed or discussed within the media. Eyebrows were raised even more however when the song’s title ‘Bootylicious’ made its way into the dictionary as an official word. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Usher-Yeah (2004) <ul><li>This song was one of the biggest hits of 2004 and is now recognised as a Club classic. Critics recognise the music video and song to be a turning point in usher’s career calling it a show of his ‘newfound maturity’. </li></ul>
