80s Month: 80s Music Videos

Taking a break from the 80s cartoons (awesome as they are), let's take a look at some cool 80s music videos. 80s and music videos go hand in hand for two reasons: they were awesome, and you had outlets for seeing them (thanks for nothing, modern day MTV!). Here are just a tiny few out of the hundreds of great ones:

The one that introduced the medium to most of America, here is "Video Killed the Radio Star," by the Buggles (technically released in 1979, but let's not nitpick, shall we?):

Here is one of my absolute favorite bands from the 80s, the adorable Go-Gos with "We Got The Beat:"

Next up, the little ol' band from Texas, ZZ Top, with "Sharp Dressed Man."

A great song that both fits well among other 80s pop and also blends well with today's AC pop, Joe Jackson and "Steppin' Out."

This song has had renewed fan interest thanks to "The Sopranos." It was a great song in 1981, it's a great song today. Here's arena rock favorites Journey with "Don't Stop Believing."

Finally, to add a bit of hip hop in the mix, here is Run/DMC with their Aerosmith team-up, "Walk This Way."

I realize this is an eclectic bag, and there are so many iconic 80s vids I can feature. If you have any requests, let me know and I'll do my best to post them. Tubular!
