    Although this song is a bit bleaker than what's usually played on 80's Music Fun, I think Dirty Blvd by Lou Reed is a great 80's song. Any chance of playing it on the video jukebox?

    Sorry, Nose! There's absolutely NO way I'll ever play THAT song on Music Fun! I've gotta have SOME standards!

Thanks again, Gernot. This is a great song. Lou Reed can pack more into a minute song than some can put in volumes.

    Well, that's THIS week's long distance dedication! Let's get back to the countdown! In at Numbers One thru Six are these little numbers. Let's listen to each one, shall we? There'll be a test afterwards, so pay attention! ;\)

This is a great video. One of the classics of the 80's. Great guitar by Eddie Van Halen.

    Eat It


This might be Al's best video parody. He's so in tune with the Michael Jackson video, scene for scene. Actually, when I was watching Beat It, I could visualize the jokes from Eat It! He must've used the same sets and same actors.
Your link is wrong, though. Both videos are Beat It.




I don't remember this video, but I do the song. The video is not very imaginative.




This is my favorite Mellencamp song. It's a real toe tapper. Great lyrics and driving guitar. Very cool video, too.




I don't remember this one, but I never got into Cyndi Lauper.




I was wondering if you'd play some Def Leppard. They were one of the biggest bands of the 80's, and this was a good song. This video was hugely popular.

I have a song that I've wanted to request for a few weeks, but with the announcement of the death of Scott Kalvert, director of The Basketball Diaries, on the Comcast homepage, I'm inspired to request People Who Died by the Jim Carroll Band. Jim Carroll wrote the Basketball Diaries, a collection of writings from his own diary entries from ages 13-16.
