Top Five Cheesy 80’s Videos
On August 1st of 1981 when MTV launched, you could not just put out a song anymore, you had to have a video…. no matter what it looked like. Here’s 5 of my favorite cheesy videos from the 80s.
- “Video Killed The Radio Star” The first video played on MTV
2. “Safety Dance” Men Without Hats
Men in tights dancing in a field with short people and a parade and I’m not sure what’s happening here.
3. “RIO” Duran Duran
Girls and paint and bouncing balls with crabs biting your feet and oh yeah, sailing!
4. “Whip It” Devo
Plunger hats with a wooden spoon lady, cowboys and whips, what more could you ask for?
5. “Physical” Olivia Newton John
