Once upon a time, if you wanted to watch a music video, you'd have to rush home, turn on MTV, and wait! Yes kids, the M from MTV used to stand for MUSIC. Ok, sorry, I sounds like a cranky old man. Since the advent of YouTube and other online streaming, people can watch their favorite videos over and over and over. Even so, only a handful of music videos have made it to the 1 BILLION views mark, including Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up...the whole "Rick Roll" thing helped that one along.
Sting and The Police just got into the club, surpassing the mark!
