I bring you… The 80’s music video. I vaguely recall hearing about the rise of MTV throughout the 80s. My parents only had cable for a brief period, but I remember visiting friends and always being disappointed when the TV sat on the “music” station. Boring.
Of course now, I don’t know that calling it a “music” station even remotely works. 80s music videos had some crazy production values. And, I bring you 3 samples.
– Welcome to the 80s, says Judas Priest. Great song for air guitar says local police.
– Random Ninjas, what’s not to like?
– Before Miley… Madonna did controversy with a lot more class.
Of course, no discussion of the 80s is complete without the one and only…. Mind you, it’s a bit more viewing than listening given the length of the exposition…
