    I grew up watching ’80s videos too. I think that one of my favourites was Alan Parson’s Project “Don’t Answer Me” from Ammonia Avenue, with its cheezy comic book animation. It’s also a great song, with a very cool sax solo.

    I also dug “Thriller”!! And, from Canada, we had the Killer Dwarfs’ “Keep The Spirit Alive”. Of course, there’s also Genesis’ “Land Of Confusion” was pretty cool, as was “When Doves Cry”, Motley Crue’s “Looks That Kill”, “Rio”, “King Of Pain” (all those candles!!), and all the DJ Jazzy Jeff videos. And the Bon Jovi videos with the shower of sparks…

    Back then when videos were silly or meaningless, at least they were NEW to the senses. Nowadays, if a video is silly or meaningless, the only reaction can be “they should know better than to give us this crap…”
