Playing on YouTube today, I came across several classic 80’s videos. It reminded me of a time when MTV programming was actually about music. Yeah, I know. Pine for your lost youth someplace else.
Here are some of the wonderful songs and videos I rediscovered.
A-Ha-Take on Me: So cutting edge at the time…plus, such a pretty band.
Alphaville-Forever Young: 80’s prom gold!
John Waite-Missing You: Dangling earrings and payphones.
Cindi Lauper-Time After Time: Awwww, tears.
Rick Springfield-Jessie’s Girl:Leather jackets AND suits? Say it ain’t so.
T’pau-Heart and Soul: Star Trek themed band name…one hit wonder.
Pat Benatar-Love is a Battlefield: What could be hotter than dancing hookers? Not much.
Richard Marx-Right Here Waiting:Mullet power!
J Geils Band-Centerfold: Lots of blank faces in this one.
Human League-Don’t You Want Me: This is a serious video!
There are certainly more and better videos out there. Find any?
