There seems to be one extra that is missing from a lot of DVDs, especially for films that were released in the 80’s, the music videos. Even more than trailers (which are almost always included), music videos were a HUGE part in the promotion of films. While people saw the trailers a couple times, regular MTV viewers in the 80’s (back when they showed music videos) would often show music videos 3 or 4 times a day. And I’m not talking about songs that were popular and used in the movie, I’m talking about songs that originated in the film, appeared on the soundtrack, and the videos were made up of clips from the film. I often Tivo VH1 Classics, the “We are the 80’s” show especially. It seems every episode includes several movie music videos. Filled with scenes from the movies. Yet, when the DVD is released, the music video isn’t there. For example, the recent release of Madonna’s film WHO’S THAT GIRL. It didn’t have the music video for the theme song. The video has Madonna singing the theme, clips from the movie, even uses a bit of the story of the film in the video. Now, music rights shouldn’t be an issue for this, as it was a Warner film and a Warner song. The video didn’t even make the Madonna music video DVD. Yet, more people saw this video then saw the film. It would have seemed to be a perfect fit for the DVD. It isn't there, while the trailer is. Also the recent release of LICENSE TO DRIVE. It didn’t have the music video for “Drive My Car” which featured the cast singing the theme. I would have thought it might be a music rights issue, yet they use the song as background music for the menu screens. So, I don’t know. And does the DVD of THE JEWEL OF THE NILE have the great music video for “When the Going Gets Tough”, with Danny DeVito and the saxophone? More fun than the film it was promoting, yet I don’t think it is on the DVD. Even current films are missing the boat. The new DVD of RENT didn’t have the video for “Out Tonight” on it, a well edited video of clips from the film that, while I don’t think it aired on MTV, played on other music video outlets last year. Why wasn’t it on the DVD? Again, music rights may be an issue in some cases, but if some DVDs can have them, why can’t others? The DVD of the Andrew Dice Clay film THE ADVENTURES OF FORD FAIRLAINE, a film that bombed at the box office, still had the video for Billy Idol’s “Cradle of Love”. The video at first contained clips from the film. But, after the video became very popular, and the film bombed, they changed the video, removing the video clips. Yet, when the DVD was released, they managed to include it. A great extra. Why can’t more companies do that? And in other cases, we are seeing music videos released before the film. The theme song to the film ELECTRIC DREAMS (which features clips from the film along with Virginia Madsen and other actors interacting with the lead singer) is on the “Best of the Human League” DVD, even though MGM has yet to release the film. And again, music videos were a lot more popular than trailers. They have a lot more replay value, more nostalgia for them. It just seems that they should be included more than they are.
