ABOUT ROD >> Videography >> Promotional videos

It was Al Jolsen, one of Rod's major heroes, that starred in the 1927 film The Jazz Singer, which was the first movie to feature music and singing as well as sound. Decades later, the music industry was revolutionised by the "pop promo", with Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody in 1975 being a major turning point.

In fact, short films had been used by pop artists to promote their records years earlier and prime examples can be found by the likes of John Lennon (Imagine) and the Kinks (Apeman) to name just two major artists.

Rod's first promotional video was 1973's Oh No Not My Baby, the first of three promos shot to push his final two Mercury singles. The original purpose of these musical films was to allow artists on tour or otherwise engaged to receive publicity for a record and save them the time and effort from making personal appearances. It is no coincidence that as soon as Rod started making his own promotional films, he stopped bothering to appear on Top Of The Pops.

What follows is a complete list of Rod's promotional videos:
