I've been listening to lots of oldies in my car and thought a favorite music videos thead might be fun...then I realized that one of my favorite videos is not a "real" video. Oh well, enjoy, this one is great.

A favorite from the 80s. I always thought Thomas Dolby had a very sexy vibe going. I also like the idea that a woman could drive a man crazy with her smell of chemicals ;)

I don't remember the title or artist, but I loved that video where the girl is reading a comic book and then the guy comes to life. Does anyone know the name of that song?

A-Ha. Thanks for posting the video, Elijsha. I love that one, too. It's considered one of the best of the 80s.

Wow! On the first page of the thread you have already mentioned two of my all-time favorites - Take on Me and Come on Eileen. Of course, I am stuck in the 80s musically. I even got a satellite radio a few years ago and that's almost all that I listen to in the car.
Here's another one: Modern Day Delilah by Van Stephenson who was considered mostly a one-hit wonder as a single artist, but went on to be part of the country group Blackhawk. Van lost his battle with cancer in 2001.

oooo - good thread Leslie!

You've already mentioned one of my favorite artists - Thomas Dolby.

Here is one of my favorites - The Buggles - and first video aired on MTV.


Melody Gardot is amazing - google her if you want to learn about her - her story is inspiring as is her music



The Romantics


and last but not least, one of my very favorites - Kermit singing The Rainbow Connection

Great choices, everyone! I love these old videos!

I had a huge crush on Adam Ant...I loved his androgynous sexuality. Here he is in Goody Two Shoes, a classic and favorite...

When I became aware of music and listening to the radio... circa 1966, Elvis was turning into a ghost of his former self and I didn't understand what all the whoop-de-do was about. Then, somewhere along the line, I saw Jailhouse Rock and suddenly my sox were knocked. Talk about androgynous sexuality! LOL. Those legs, those hips! Watch this carefully. About the time the heat gets too hot, they have two old fat guys come in to dance, I think to turn the thermostat down....

I don't know if this really counts as a music video per se but our friends son is in the group, he's also our son's friend if that makes any sense.

I love this video, and the entire album is one of my current favorites.

I love this song but the video is surprisingly unimaginative and -- dare I say? -- tacky?

Just watching this again...talk about a video that was ahead of its time...or at least pushing the envelope! LOL

That was really beautiful, Forster. Thank you for posting.

I wish I could say one of my son's friends was in this group, or a friend of mine, but alas, no. Of course, I have a crush on the lead singer in the linen jacket! LOL (as well as a few of the other guys).


These very talented young men are from Bates College in Lewiston, Maine.
