When I saw A-ha's video "Take On Me" on MTV in 1985, I knew I was seeing the future, when animation and live action would merge seamlessly.
And I again knew I was seeing the future the first time I saw Madonna's video "Ray of Light," which came out in 1998.
The cuts were so fast, so energetic, I felt myself set ablaze by the video's kinetic power.
Both were nominated for MTV's award, Video of the Year. "Ray of Light" won.
