Gerry Rafferty's Bring It All Home. I loved the animation and imagery. Finding it now (almost) forty years later I still think it's very cool.

"Take On Me" is still the best video ever!  

First time I saw the video was the first time I ever heard the song, and it was at a theater, on a big screen, like a preview before the movie.  I'll never forget seeing its ending that way, slamming against the walls and going back and forth between penciled animation and live action...

I used to love A-ha and had a real thing for that lead singer.  :cool: :lol:

How do I post videos :)
It used to be easy, just deleting the "s" in https:  But now that doesn't work for me.

Try clicking share and then highlighting and copying the https, then coming back here and pasting it without the "s".

The cuts from Stop Making Sense were great, too.

My dad used to always remind me how much I loved the Burning Down The House video when I was 2 or 3.  I especially love Road To Nowhere and the two from True Stories.  You can’t get away with Love For Sale being made today because the product placements would be blocked out.  Neil Young learned the hard way a year later...for a video that mocked commercials.

Satire went over MTV’s heads. :facepalm:

One of the best concert movies.  Saw it on Showtime recently.  Love how it uses the stage as if it’s a set of a play or movie to tell the story of the songs.

"Video Killed The Radio Star."  I saw it with my own young eyes.  First video ever.  The best.

Now it's....
