Back in the 80's music videos exploded onto the scene. MTV and others featured a slew of new and innovative bands all redefining the music scene on a constant basis.

I remember recording dozens of Beta video cassettes when we actually had cable.

It was quite a time!

:eleph: The Ground Rules :eleph:

- Any music genre is acceptable.

- Don't knock somebody else's music, your taste may be crap also.

- Label your videos as PG or PG-13 as required.

- Add lyrics or screen shots as you see fit.

- Drink responsibly, use a glass.

- Runtimes are not required unless it is an exceptionally long video. (i.e. full concerts)

Funny how I find myself in love with you If I could buy my reasoning I'd pay to lose
One half won't do I've asked myself, how much do you Commit yourself It's my life, don't you forget It's my life, it never ends (It never ends)
Funny how I blind myself, I never knew If I was sometimes played upon, afraid to lose I'd tell myself, what good you do Convince myself It's my life, don't you forget It's my life, it never ends (It never ends) I've asked myself, how much do you Commit yourself?
It's my life, don't you forget Caught in the crowd, it never ends It's my life, don't you forget Caught in the crowd, it never ends It's my life, don't you forget Caught in the crowd, it never ends

An interesting Post-Punk Speed Metal kind of sound from St. Paul Minnesota,

Hüsker Dü - "These Important Years"

View: https://youtu.be/Knjh4K_QqUQ?list=PLiE2CJKxmY0cu_XbDNPrYEmlUnIPAPL4z


The new name originated during a rehearsal of the Talking Heads's "Psycho Killer." Unable to recall the French portions sung in the original (e.g., Qu'est-ce que c'est?), they instead started shouting any foreign-language words they could remember, including the title of the popular 1970s memory board game Hūsker Dū? (the phrase without diacritics meaning "do you remember?" in Danish and Norwegian). The name stuck,

Fischer-Z - "Cruise Missiles"

View: https://youtu.be/p_FoL8Wm_uw?list=PLiE2CJKxmY0cu_XbDNPrYEmlUnIPAPL4z


wiki,

Fischer-Z are a British rock group and main creative project of singer, guitarist and poet John Watts. In 1982 Watts temporarily dissolved Fischer-Z and started a solo career under his own name. John Watts has gone on to release both solo and Fischer-Z projects. The original line-up consisted of Watts (vocals, guitar), Steve Skolnik (keyboards), David Graham (bass) and Steve Liddle (drums).

The band's name is pronounced /fɪʃə ˈzɛd/ ("fisher zed"), a pun on "fish's head" with the "h" dropped, as is usual in many British regional accents. The pun also relies on leaving the "r" unpronounced as in common British non-rhotic accents.

Fischer-Z found success across Europe and sold more than two million albums. Joint recordings were made with Peter Gabriel, Steve Cropper and Dexys Midnight Runners. Fischer-Z performed alongside James Brown in East Berlin and toured with The Police and Dire Straits. They also toured the US and Canada and were on the bill with Bob Marley on his last festival tour of Europe. John Watts has released 20 albums and played around 3,000 concerts so far.
