Most Awesome Music Videos From the Awesome 80’s [VIDEO]

The year was 1981. The date, August 1st. Music Television was turned on and the rest is history. Since MTV, an artists’ video can either make (Madonna) or break (Billy Squire) a solo artist or band!I remember sitting inside on beautiful summer days in Buffalo waiting to see THE WORLD PREMIRE of Van Halen’s Panama.

The Buggles’ ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’ was the first video to air. Do you know what the second one was? Pat Benatar’s ‘You Better Run’. After that videos came and went, some great, most god and a few just bad. Here is my list of cutting edge videos of the time in no particular order.
What videos blew you big hair back in the 80’s?

This video changed the way videos were made forever. It was a mini movie with big budget, big name director, John Landis, big cast with one of the biggest talents of of time.

Peter Gabriel’s ‘Sledge Hammer’ took stop motion to the next level. Even Wang Chung said ‘whoa’.

The Cars ‘You Might Think’ fun song, hot model really weird and creative special effects.

A-Ha’s ‘Take On Me’ used real time animation. Even The Family Guy paid homage to the style.

Look out Roger Rabbit, MC Skat Cat used Paula Abdule as his Jessica Rabbit-
