Perhaps it’s nostalgia.Â Perhaps it’s knowing that we’re about halfway through the year and 2010 is eventually upon us.Â The fact that 1980 will have been 30 years ago is pretty amazing.Â And the difference between now and anything thirty years ago is pretty astounding as well.Â Sowould the difference between 1980 and 1950 be, and so forth.
Not really sure where I was going with that but the point is I miss the 80s.Â I miss the music.Â I miss the weird hair and blazers in high school.Â I was only 5 or 6 when the real 80s music videos started to air, but I feel like I remember them.
It’s unfortunate I missed these gems though.
Check out these 10 obscure 80s videos that I doubt you’d know
Lady Pink’s “Minus Zero”
The bouncing in this video is Uncoached.
The Vel’s “Look my Way”
One of the happiest songs I’ve ever heard
Classic Nouveaux’s “Guilty”
I think the movie Powder was inspired by this video
Sparks and Jane Weidlin’s Cool Places
Is this pre or post Go Gos?Â I loved Jane Wiedlin in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure
Fad Gadget’s “Collapsing new People”
OK. Bird Feathers.
Freur’s “Doot Doot”
Thomas Dolby’s Hyperactivate
Cardiacs – R.E.S
Is this song catchy though? No, no it’s not.
Klaus Nomi’s “Lightning Strikes”
I think I just threw up in my mouth
