As I mentioned in my last post, my older siblings used to tape videos off Video One (with Richard Blade) back in the day... This period lasted between '83 and '85 (I was born in '77 just so you know). We had volumes and volumes of Betamaxx tapes full of the hottest new wave, pop and rock videos of the day. I used to watch these when I had nothing else to do. Watching the Cure sing "Let's Go To Bed" was just as entertaining to me as watching Bert and Ernie or the Great Space Coaster.
So with the magic of YouTube I decided to compile a playlist of every video I could remember that we had on tap. This isn't an exhaustive list by any means. I'm sure I'm forgetting tons (Parka? any suggestions?), and there were a few I couldn't find ("Ride The White Pony" or "State of Shock" by the Jacksons for example). But I figure 150 videos ain't too bad.
Keep in mind, for every great video in this list, there's a real stinker. A few I didn't even want to put on here, but I had no choice. :) So if you have time and want to peek into my childhood musical tastes, check it out!!
