The 1990s were a huge time for music videos. Labels were basically minting money by selling $18 CDs, and giving bands a budget of $1 million to make a crazy video didn't seem like a huge expense. Gone were the days when a band took four hours to shoot a video at their rehearsal space. Suddenly, Axl Rose was swimming with dolphins and Michael Jackson was dancing with Janet on a spaceship. The more high-concept, the more plays it got on MTV.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
