Today, I first began researching websites to look for information about the history of music videos. A few useful websites I referred to were:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_video
http://www.history.com/news/2011/08/01/the-music-video-before-music-television/
http://www.myspace.com/pages/the_history_of_music_videos

I have not written anything 'official' yet, but have taken lots of notes from the websites of things relevant and interesting regarding the history of music videos. I have already found out lots of information, which before taking this course I had never even considered. Personally, one of the most influential bits of research I have read so far, is the impact of the huge company MTV. It's importance in terms of music videos over time can easily be determined as it is and always has been known as the 'heart' of music videos; once you make it onto MTV, you've made it as an artist.
