Afternoons 2pm to 7pm

Can’t help but notice the VMAs are trending tonight on Twitter. I could be the typical 40 something and make the usual comment about how MTV doesn’t even play videos anymore. But that’d make me sound as old… as I am quite frankly.

Instead, let’s jump in the DeLorean and go back to the 80s and watch Hall & Oates, Run DMC, Eddie Murphy, Pat Benatar, Tears for Fears, John Mellencamp, Bryan Adams and Best New Artist Til Tuesday. Fast forward to 21 minutes in for a fun recap of the year.

Your nominees for Video of the Year in 1985:

  • Don Henley – The Boys of Summer
  • Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers – Don’t Come Around Here No More
  • David Lee Roth – California Girls
  • David Lee Roth – Just A Gigolo/I Ain’t Got Nobody
  • USA For Africa – We Are The World
