- 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.

Great Ballad, great footage.

I don't know what's going on...but I like it.

Probably the most original video ever made...still makes me happy to this day (scary motorcyclists aside).

I would STILL love to see videos that showed baseball highlights.

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.

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 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.
