Holy cow, the whole skating rink used to get up when this one came on....it was an awesome bounce skate!
Party Train- Gap Band
A few that have stuck in my brain over the decades:
Spanish Eddie by Laura Branigan.
(Notice the Datsun pickup when Eddie jumps the wall...that's a throwback!)
And because one good fictitious Eddie deserves another:
On The Dark Side by Eddie And The Cruisers.
(or the "real" version, which is the exact same audio but you get to see John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band, who actually wrote and performed it. You may notice that the real sax player also showed up in the movie. After having seen the film so many times, though, this one just looks like a bunch of guys doing a really good cover version.)
And lastly, never let it be said that I don't give good Murray:
One Night In Bangkok by Murray Head. A great one to listen to on headphones (the dreadful pun was not intentional).
If you recognize lyrics like:
and (my personal favorite)
you'll know they're from:
I'm An Adult Now* by The Pursuit Of Happiness (written by lead vocalist Moe Berg).
Whilst digging that one up, I found this version.**
I remember the first video more, but is was the re-release (the Love Junk version) that I seem to remember hearing on the radio.
That song just gets more and more funny as I realize it becomes more and more true.
*the original 1986 video, shot in Toronto by The Pursuit Of Happiness
**from the 1998 re-recording of the song that appeared on the album Love Junk.
Have always loved On the Dark Side
What, you didn't mean this one?
In the mid-80s I spent my last couple of years of high school living in France. They were just discovering music videos, so most of the videos from French bands was them playing on the same sound-stage at the one cable television station that was showing vidoes (they had a bunch of big, coloured, blocks that they’d re-arrange for each band to make it look a little different). I loved this song from the first time I heard it, and then it came out with a real video
..which is makes me laugh, because it so completely captures a lot of French attitudes of the time. Even if you don't understand french, it is a hoot to watch.
I must have been posting in my sleep again. That's exactly what I meant.
Thank you CleverBomb! :bow:
