  • 10. Cool It Now by Neew Edition
    A fun song but not a good video. What should I expect from a bunch of kids. Their solo videos as well as the Heartbreak videos were awesome.
  • 9. Kissing The Fool by George Michael
    George Michael performing in a cocktail lounge. Was that kd Lang in the audience?
  • 8. Blood And Roses by Smithereens
    The lead singer looks like satan. The video is filmed in black and white and makes me physically ill.
  • 7. Alphabet Street by Prince
    Sorry but I learned my ABC's when I was a kid. This video features Prince with the alphabet flying by. The song is boring and I still can't figure out why this video (or the movie it is from) was even made.
  • 6. New York New York by Nina Hagen
    This woman sounds like a screeching cat and looks like something the same cat would drag in. Take a valium and let someone else do the acting.
  • 5. I Eat Cannibals by Total Conelo
    Stupid song even stupider video. Enough said.
  • 4. Addicted To Love by Robert Palmer
    I love the song! But the video reminds me of a 75 year old guy with eighteen year olds on his arm. I never listen to this song during meals due to the revolting feeling I get when I think about it.
  • 3. Super Freak by Rick James
    It looks like a slow day on the Hooker's street corner. Rick is the pimp surrounded by his ladies. The visual isn't pretty.
  • 2. Me And My Wine by Def Leppard
    This came out in the early 1980's when they could play their instruments but couldn't sing. The result are scary!
  • 1. Kiss by Prince
    Watching Prince jump around in his underwear isn't something that anyone should have to see. This is cruel and unusual punishment.

    A video that just clears your mind of problems....and fills it with Christie Brinkly

    Great Ballad, great footage.
  • 8. Been Caught Stealin by Jane's Addiction
    I don't know what's going on...but I like it.

    This is the video i think of whenever a song comes on from madonna.
  • 6. Smooth Criminal by Michael Jackson
    Amazing work...and a somewhat forgotten song.
  • 5. Boys of Summer by Don Henley
    There's something about the two-tone color of this video that sticks with you...
  • 4. Take on Me by A-Ha
    Probably the most original video ever made...still makes me happy to this day (scary motorcyclists aside).
  • 3. Centerfield by John Fogerty
    I would STILL love to see videos that showed baseball highlights.
  • 2. Land of Confusion by Genesis
    Ronald Reagan accidentally nuking the world in the morning? I had that very same nightmare all the time i was growing up.
  • 1. Addicted to Love by Robert Palmer
    A guy in a 3-piece suit rocking with scantily clad women around? You just had to love it.
"smells like teen spirit" was the death of the music video.

    Every time I hear this song, it brings back some painful memories of the 80's. However, I enjoy torturing myself like this.
  • 8. Everything She Wants by Wham!
    Ever since I heard this song, I now try to make myself looke like George Michael. People even say that I look like him.

    THis is a slow song. I enjoyed what George was saying. After hearing this song, I become a new person.

    Here is a third song done by Rockwell. I also loved this one.
  • 2. Obscene Phone Caller by Rockwell
    This is another excellent song done by Rockwell.
  • 1. Somebody's Watching Me by Rockwell
    I would just like to say that this is best sone of the 80s! Rockwell is the best.
When I hear the song "Somebody's Watching Me" by Rockwell, I become a different person. This is my favourite scary song of the 80s. I love the music video. It's like a reflection on my own life. After I hear the song, I always feel like someone is watching me! Even the song "Peeping tom" by Rockwell makes me crazy. The video is something that I never expected. I love Rockwell.
