* Justice has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=49esza4eiK4 "D.A.N.C.E."]] which plays around with various t-shirt design tropes, and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=50BBNZ-ejjU "DVNO"]] which uses various [[VanityPlate broadcasting logo styles]] (mostly from TheEighties) to animate the songs lyrics. [=DVNO=] could probably fill a large trope page simply based on the references it makes.

** Their films ''Film/AHardDaysNight'', ''Film/{{Help}}'', and to a lesser degree, ''Film/MagicalMysteryTour'' and ''Film/YellowSubmarine'', went a long way towards codifying a lot of the visual techniques and tropes of music videos that dominated TheEighties music scene.

Added DiffLines:

* Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, that perfect example of '60s kitsch, had two of their songs set to animation in ''WesternAnimation/AHerbAlpertAndTheTijuanaBrassDoubleFeature''. This largely forgotten little cartoon was a TropeMaker for the AnimatedMusicVideo, being made at the same time that acts like Dylan and the Beatles were making them in live-action.

* The film ''Blackboard Jungle'' (1955) became a huge success when Bill Haley and his Comets' hit "Rock Around The Clock" was used as the opening theme. Teenagers just went to the film theaters to listen to this hit blasting out of the speakers at top volume.
** Music/ElvisPresley's films, especially ''Jailhouse Rock'', had the same effect.

* Music/AdamAndTheAnts' "Stand and Deliver" and "Prince Charming" were early big-budget, glamorous, film-like videos with a heavy emphasis on image, all of which predicted the MTV era.

** And it doesn’t end there! Former Monkees member Creator/MichaelNesmith had created and produced music videos since the 1970’s, even winning the first ever Video UsefulNotes/GrammyAward for his Creator/{{PBS}} television special ''Elephant Parts''. Nesmith, along with longtime partner William Dear, created the first music video program, ''[=PopClips=]'', which aired on {{Creator/Nickelodeon}} from 1979-1981. As the series gained popularity, ExecutiveMeddling soon took over, and warped Nesmith’s concept into what is now known as [[{{MTV}} MTV and MTV Networks]].
