the above link 404'd on me so I thought this thread was worth reviving
would love to see more obscure awesome 80's! rather than the well known ones
sorry to see a lot of songs on page 1 are dead links also.... I'm going to link to page 2 ♥
that intro is just epic! While looking up the year, I see people saying Family Guy helped to make it more popular - I had no idea.. I must have
missed that episode
I'm happy to say I remember it when it was fairly new
Nice selections! Oh boy Asia...trying to get some in the basement to that...lol I agree there is something so 80's in ALL of these videos...here are
a couple more obscure ones I can clearly remember: also to note: Great how they "act" in the videos
Edit to add: Just saw the above post - both great and both very, very 80's...and thanks for the plug!!

I love OMD and Berlin! the others are new to me - you so can't beat that "synth" style though
does this count?
1983 - Thompson Twins: Hold Me Now
That song has some of the most awesome lyrics
and then we got the fashion, the hair, and the sound!
1981 - Go Go's: Our Lips Are Sealed
in 1980 the following song was released - I forgot about it - probably because I didn't pay as much attention to music when I was 6 - I
remembered its existance about 20 years later - took me another year to find someone else to tell me who sang it - this song has the BEST line ever
written in any song IMHO
1980 - Benny Mardones: Into the Night
and I would wait till the end - of time for you - and do it again its true
I can't measure my love - there's nothing to compare it to
no wait - here's another incredibly memorable line (except its not 80's.... but it was popular in the 80's!!!)
1977 - Billy Joel: Only The Good Die Young
Some say there's a heaven, for those who will wait
some say its better, but I say it ain't
I'd rather laugh with the sinners, than cry with the saints
The sinners are much more fun!!!
You know that only the good die young
