So I was bored and on YouTube, so I decided that I would search for cheesy 80’s videos. I found some, and now I will share a few with you. They are not all that great in terms of songs or videos, but they are freakin’ hilarious, and I needed a good laugh. And in the interest of sharing a good laugh with everyone, here they are.
Ronnie James Dio Holy Diver–man Dio is so awesome. I think he shoulda been Conan, screw Arnold.
This one is from Kill Switch Engage…it’s not from the 80’s but it’s a cover of Dio. It’s not nearly as good as the original, but it does have its moments, and it’s campy as hell so I can appreciate that it’s a total mockery of the seriousness Dio lent to his work.
More Metal. This video from Iron Maiden–Run to the Hills is truly awful, but the song rocks. Not a hige Maiden fan, but this is definitely one of my faves.
The Cure Close to Me I especially enjoy the finger puppets and the clapping.
Another one from The Cure Love Cats there’s no denying this one.
Last one from The Cure, I promise. This one is a classic too. Let’s Go to Bed I wonder what happens at 3.
The Talking Heads Burning Down the House
Road To Nowhere more Talking Heads
Wild Wild Life for Talking Heads. Check out the cameos.
Duran Duran Hungry Like the Wolf
Duran Duran Wild Boys (the long version) I love the Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome styling in this one, with some undertones of Spacehunter Beyond they Forbidden Zone, Molly Ringwald’s first movie.
Rockwell Somebody’s Watching Me. I couldn’t find the original video, but at least this one has Rockwell and is without a doubt a product of the 80’s.
Human League Fascination. Yeah, I coulda gone with Don’t You Want Me, but that’s just too obvious.
And last, but not least, Thomas Dolby She Blinded Me With Science. I just love that old scientist dude, he cracks me up.
