PAgent’s Progress

Words Are My Favorite Toys

May 18th, 2006

Remember when MTV played videos?

Maybe it’s my recent hissy fits about the quality of popular music, maybe it’s nostalgia, or maybe it’s the treasure trove of links to 80’s music videos I just found, but I’m thinking of making 80’s videos a recurring feature here. Sort of like Bizarre Album Saturday in Pezland.

I still enjoy these videos, even the ones that are so cheesy you feel like reaching for a fondue fork. So, take a stroll down memory lane with me. Remember folks, these are now officially ‘oldies’.

Murray Head - One Night in Bangkok

Night Ranger - Sister Christian

Toni Basil - Mickey

and last but not least, one of my favorite 80’s bands:

Big Country - In A Big Country

Certainly not their best song, but definitely their best-known, at least in the US.
