The link is wrong. I'd watch Blondie read the phone book. \:\)

Here is the right link:

I play this and all of Queens hits for Henry. They're his favorite band. But I don't show him this video with all the cross dressing. Don't want to confuse a 2 year old.

The Cars were a hit machine in those early days of MTV. They had some innovative videos. I love Ric Ocasek's voice. Not typical rocker, but as individual as the band itself. I wonder if he ever accidentally stepped of the platform during filming?




This was a big hit. I remember the video very well.




Everyone loved this song in the summer of '82. It still holds up well, if you're into New Wave. Brings back memories.




This was never one of my favorite Blondie songs, but I like it. Like PPP said, the link is wrong.




I remember this song. I would've been around 11 or 12 when it was popular, so it's tough for me to break the feelings that a 12 year old boy would have for a song like this. Not a favorite.




Wow! Freddie must workout to maintain that figure. How'd he film that without cracking up? I don't remember this song at all. According to wiki, it was banned by MTV. That explains it.

This Queen song didn't get any airplay here in St. Louis. I don't know when MTV lifted the ban on this video, but I saw it during an "Original Vee-Jays" weekend back in '91 on MTV, then SEVERAL times on VH-1 after that. I think this video's been on VH-1 Classic a few times, too.

Could we see 68 Guns by The Alarm next week? They have that typical 80's look but I think their sound transcends their era.

One of my favorites by the Cars. Then again they don't really have a song I dislike. One of my favorite 80s groups.




Just a great 80s song.




I've always liked this ok.




Never been a big Blondie fan.







Don't think I know any 80s Queen really so this was new for me.

I'd like to make a request for Shut Out the Light by Bruce Springsteen. It's a phenomenal tune that for whatever reason never made it on an album but was a B-side for Born in the USA from 1984! I'm a Springsteen fanatic so that would be awesome if you could get that in at some point.

All except the last two are favorites. I do like Queen this one just is not one of their best though I think one of the better ones to the critics. I listen to The Cars and liked their cross genre sound. This is the only Ritchie song I can think of that I liked. Simple ballads got old to me pretty fast. R.E.O. knew how to turn a ballad into a R&R song! This is also the only Wilde song I remember enjoying. Ingram&Austin didnt do it for me either. Almost forgot-loved Blondie the band-lusted after Debbie Harry. They were in that group that were to good to be punk and helped launch the new wave era.
