ON MUSIC ~ Video Killed The Radio Star...


The Music Memoirs asks us to name the best music video's from the '80's...

  1. "Sledgehammer" - Peter Gabriel
  2. "Hot For Teacher" - Van Halen
  3. "Take On Me" - a-ha
  4. "Walk This Way" - Aerosmith & Run DMC
  5. "We're Not Gonna Take It" & "I Wanna Rock" - Twisted Sister (we know - sneaking in a double shot here - but Molly chose one and Andy preferred the other)

We decided to leave off "Money for Nothing" with the assumption that it would appear on everyone else's list.

Funnily enough Money For Nothing hasn't been on a single list yet! OMG LOL!

Oh yeah, Money For Nothing goes without saying! Some other ones that popped into mind was "Land of Confusion" by Genesis and "Magic" by the Cars. There are alot of them stuck in my brain from Friday Night Videos, and even though they made a huge impression on me, in hindsight they weren't all that good!

Oh yeah, Hot For Teacher ROCKED, as did the video. Have you seen Junior's grades?

Janet reminds that Come On Eileen was awesome, too. It was tough to pick just 5!

(yeah, I know "Have you seen junior's grades" was from another song, but I wanted to use it!)

So many 80s videos to choose from it seems. Can't argue with any of your choices (although have to confess I've never seen the Twisted Sister ones).

See? I just keep lovin' youse more n more. Take On Me would be my very #1, though! Then maybe 2) Walk Like an Egyptian- Bangles
3) Relax- Frankie Goes to Hollywood
4) Shit, what was the name of that Men Without Hats song?
5) Like a Virgin (I coulda ate-er-up back then)

We matched on 'Sledgehammer', and I have a Dire Straits video and a Run-DMC video on my list as well. Great minds think alike, I guess.

Nice list this week!
