  1. Mike & the Mechanics tried it with their “Rewired” album in 2004 which came out in a CD+DVD edition that had at least one video to each of the album’s songs. Sadly, the trend didn’t catch on. A few years later, the hype was low-cost viral videos for key songs from an album to be vuewable for free on video portals. I think the latter was great for listening to full length songs instead of just 30 sec samples.
