During the s, music videos had become de rigueur for most recording artists. In this period, directors and the acts they worked with began to explore and expand the form and style of the genre, using more sophisticated effects in their videos, mixing film and video, and adding a storyline or plot to the music video. Occasionally videos were made in a non-representational form, in which the musical artist was not shown.
One notable later example of the non-representational style is Bill Konersman's innovative video for Prince 's " Sign o' the Times "  — influenced by Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" clip, it featured only the text of the song's lyrics. In the early s, music videos also began to discover political and social themes.
