D80sV #8: The Ramones (1981 Interview)

Daily 80's Video #8: Here's something a little different. An interview with the Ramones. Very nice insight in this interview. You get a real feel for their attitude. And some real honesty. The honesty is almost surprising, since it seems honesty can often fall to the wayside when it comes to a public figure. Enjoy Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee, and Marky! Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV

D80sV #7: Echo And The Bunnymen - Never Stop (Live)

Daily 80's Video #7: To help wash all the dorkiness off from the last D80sV (Mathew Wilder's Nobody's Gonna Break My Stride) here's something that is impervious to dorkiness. Echo and the Bunnymen's Never Stop is an incredible song from the 80's. I dare you to watch this video and NOT groove along with it. Impossible. Enjoy! And a great live performance here! Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV. 

D80sV #6: Mathew Wilder - Nobody's Gonna Break My Stride (On Solid Gold)

Daily 80's Video #6: Okay, in retrospect, this may be the dorkiest 3 minutes in all of the 80's. But the song popped into my head and so I'm sticking with it. In actuality, during the 80's, when you were in the midst of sheer 80's-ness, this song was actually cool, this show (Solid Gold) was actually cool, and those crazy clothes were actually cool. Then again, I've never been one to have his finger on the pulse of coolness. Enjoy the 80's synth groove, Mathew Wilder (who might be the possible lovechild of Michael Jeter and Horshack from Welcome Back Kotter), and white people dancing. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV. 

D80sV #5: Rush - Afterimage

Daily 80's Video #5: Rush's Afterimage is a great sampling of their classic 80's concept album Grace Under Pressure. This video is terrific, showing the incredible musicianship of the band, especially the the guitarist Alex Lifeson and drummer Neil Peart, who was the visionary for these futuristic Rush albums. Oddly, the lead singer, Geddy Lee's instrument is never shown in the video. On stage Lee switches flawlessly between bass guitar and synthesizer. In this video, he is playing an unpictured synthesizer. Enjoy the great 80's haircuts, Neil Peart's incredibly massive drum kit, and Geddy Lee's distinct high-pitched, almost munchkin voice. Love the Rush. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV. 

D80sV #4: Tracey Ullman - They Don't Know

Daily 80's Video #4: Here's one of my favorite songs from the 80's. I remember when I was a kid I was a little thrown by the 60's style of the song, thinking it was an actual oldies song (well now it's an oldies song regardless). Tracey Ullman, a future TV star, gives us a taste of these talents throughout the video with her acting as well as her chameleon-like costume changes in this video, playing a cute teenager and a frumpy housewife quite effectively. Enjoy the the retro 60's style, the patented 80's storyline video, and of course Tracey Ullman. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV

D80sV #3: The Cars - Since You're Gone

Daily 80's Video #3: The Cars' Since You're Gone is Daily 80's Video #3. The Cars had a distinct and unforgettable sound and that's certainly apparent in this classic 1981 video. Enjoy the band's playful storyline concept, as movers come to move the jettisoned girlfriend's furniture out from underneath band, while Ric Ocasek and the boys play the song. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV.

D80sV #2: Madness - Baggy Trousers

Daily 80's Video #2: Madness with Baggy Trousers. This song wasn't a hit in America, but I think that says more about America than it does about this infectiously fun tune. Enjoy the ska sounds, the chaotic madness, and the 80's haircuts and clothes styles. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV
