D80sV #55: The Go-Go's - Head Over Heels

Daily 80's Video #55: The Go-Go's "Head Over Heels" is easily one of the greatest 80's songs/video of all-time. The video is fun and very stylish for back then. The song is IMO their best. Enjoy the great music, the informative subtitles added by the uploader, and the funky bassline solo especially as the drummer sneaks a peek at the camera-love it!

D80sV: De La Soul - Me, Myself, And I

Daily 80's Video: The first Daily 80's Rap Video is gonna go to my favorite rap group of all-time, De La Soul. These guys busted on the scene and I was like, "Okay, maybe this rap stuff is for me." De La Soul's 1989 album Three Feet High and Rising was easily one of the best albums of the decade. Enjoy EVERYTHING! It's a Daisy Age! Unfortunately, it would appear De La Soul isn't into MP3s or digital music, so the only way to grab some De La is through their album. Get album on Amazon. Or get t-shirt. Or get mousepad. Or get any song anywhere by trying Amazon Music Unlimited 30-Day Free Trial or iTunes For 90-Day Free Trial

D80sV #53: Level 42 - Something About You

Daily 80's Video #53: Level 42 are one of my favorite artists from the 80's. There music is moving and funky, behind Mark King's voice and incredible bass playing, followed by Mike Lindup's falsetto parts and keyboard playing. Level 42 has always been regarded as a particularly talented group, as far as musicianship, and to bass players, Mark King has got to be one of their gods. Enjoy the funky groove, the silly effects, and the lead guitarists apparent disinterest.

D80sV #52: Musical Youth - Pass The Duchie

Daily 80's Video #52: Here's a cute little song about herb, I mean food. The song is so catchy it's no wonder that it would eventually go onto sell over 5 million copies. I hope these kids saved some of that money. Here's another tidbit, "Pass The Duchie" was the first video on MTV by a black artist. Enjoy the great reggae sounds, the kids singing and dancing and attitude, and everything else that goes along with this fun little song.

D80sV #51: Bow Wow Wow - Do You Wanna Hold Me

Daily 80's Video #51: Here's a fun video from 1983. I've always loved this song. Bow Wow Wow were a very interesting, fresh, different band. Like the Sex Pistols before them, they were an invention of Malcolm McClaren. Their signature sound was a mixture of retro surfer music and African drum beats forming some sort of New Wave sound. And you just can't take your eyes of that spunky little singer, Annabelle Lwin, then only about 16 years old. Enjoy the utter randomness of this video, the playful bandmembers, and that great sound.

D80sV #50: Madonna - Open Your Heart

Daily 80's Video #50: Always loved this video. It's strange too, cuz I didn't think it was all that sexy when I was kid, go figure. Now, well, I think it's sexier than most modern videos, and that's without showing all that much skin compared to musical artists today. Enjoy the signature Madonna dance moves, the playfulness of the patrons, and the veiled references to Rita Hayworth, Marlene Dietrich, and Charlie Chaplin.
