Sorry, didn't mean to misinform anyone here - as far as I can tell, this link takes you to the 1981 video of "Video Killed the Radio Star" - the song itself is from 1979, however.

I'm not a gospel music fan in general, unless it's Amy Grant. I could listen to her sing for hours.

AMY GRANT - LEAD ME ON (1988)

The Mighty Wah??? Now that's a group I can say with 100% certainty that I've never heard of before until now. And that's a real shame because I like this song/video you posted. I'm definitely gonna have to check out more of their stuff. Great pick young warrior.

This was there biggest hit Pyro - https://youtu.be/FO5-w3540H8 - The Story Of The Blues which reached number 3 in the chart over here in the UK and was released back in late 1982.

E.G. Daily - Say It, Say It (1985)

I'm not a huge fan of this song (it's a bit too bubblegum pop for my taste.) But I do, however like this music video. It's a cool little homage to the 1962 Kubrick classic Lolita. And it's one of the reasons why I had a pretty big schoolboy crush on her as a kid.

Fun video pyro and I've always really liked E.G Daily as well!

Used to listen to these a fair old bit back in the day well there 1987 LP One Way Home anyway which featured the hit song Satellite, here's one of there earlier tracks Day By Day from there 1985 album Nervous Night.

I'm not sure how popular on the other side of the pond they were but here in the UK there only hit single I remember was Satellite but I didn't dislike them I thought they were alright with some pretty catchy tracks!

https://youtu.be/3NqtwAv57_A - Day By Day from the Hooters (1985).

The Hooters were quite popular over here in the U.S. in mid 80's because of hit songs like "And We Danced" and "All You Zombies". I remember they even appeared, and maybe even won, at an MTV music award show in the mid 80's too. But yes, I remember hearing them quite a bit as a youngster during those times. And I eventually got into them myself in my teen years in the early 90's. They are a fantastic band. Very nice pick. [Cool]

I´ve always liked The Hooters and remember that their fourth album Zig Zag was pretty big here.

And there´s of course this finnish connection because drummer David Uosikkinen's parents are both immigrants from Finland.

I'm not into 80s music.. at all !

The music i like is either too old or too obscure to have a music video that comes along with it..
so my first (and probably last) contribution to this thread is not from the 80s, but certainly worth seeing :

 -

Aphex Twin - Come To Daddy : www.youtube.com/watch?v=h-9UvrLyj3k

Enjoy ! [Big Grin]

Oh yeah, I'm pretty sure most 90's kids remember that Aphex Twin video. I know some people who said it gave them nightmares. It is an awesomely twisted video though so I've always dug it. He also has a music video for another song called "Windowlicker" that's almost just as bizarre.

This is another band I was a little too young to really get into during their biggest run in the 80's; but then got into them many years later in my early adult years. But I do remember liking this music video back in my younger years.

THE TUBES - SHE'S A BEAUTY (1983)

I love The Tubes and was also too young to get them back in the day but now i´ve collected all their cd´s plus the awesome Fee Waybill solo album Read My Lips.

Amazing band really and of course the excellent She´s a Beauty is from their more commercial David Foster era.

Don't think this band had mega success but I did like one or two of there tracks back in the day -

https://youtu.be/2m3C1K5b5VI - Monsters And Angels by Voice Of The Beehive from 1991.

Can't say I'm familiar with Voices of the Beehive at all. Reading up on them it seems they really didn't have a very long career. Just under a decade and only 3 albums. Listening to them right off I can definitely hear a strong similarity to other, more popular, 80's girl rock groups like The Bangles or The Go-Gos. So it's understandable how they were overshadowed. They're not too bad, but not quite the level of those other girl rock bands in my book. Nice share still though Warrior.

Thanks for the reminder of "Voice of the Beehive". I had completely forgotten about this group! I just listened to "Monsters and Angels" for the first time in 30+ years - great song. Very underrated band.

I like the "Monsters and Angels" video - especially the homage to the iconic Edward Hopper painting "Nighthawks":

Well spotted Nostalgic and a cool bit of info as I would have been none the wiser and I agree that there a pretty underatted band!

German band Munchener Freiheit had a big hit with the 1988 track Keeping The Dream Alive https://youtu.be/eH8T_r2uVvs but I also liked this track from the same year probably just as much -

https://youtu.be/TInay72kvM8 - Kissed You In The Rain by Munchener Freiheit from 1988.

Peter Gabriel's "So" (1986) is a masterpiece - it's one of my top five albums, and may even be my favorite '80's rock/pop album. Here's my favorite track:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zs35CBGOxbc

I remember first hearing Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car" on the radio in Summer '88 - excellent, somewhat dark, but still very inspiring song:

"So" was such an awesome album Nostalgic I liked near enough every track on it though Hear That Voice Again was one in particular that I used to listen to a lot - https://youtu.be/etvnUsZayFk .

The 1986 Disney movie Flight of the Navigator is directly responsible for introducing me to this U.K. New Wave band as a kid through bits n' pieces of this music video appearing in the movie.

Sorry, didn't mean to misinform anyone here - as far as I can tell, this link takes you to the 1981 video of "Video Killed the Radio Star" - the song itself is from 1979, however.

The video linked is from a performance on a German TV show. The actual Buggles video (and the one MTV played) was, as you correctly said, from 1979.

The guitar strum from Fast Car now reminds me too much of the verse-strum from 'Jack and Diane' and I can't ever un-hear it!

They weren't really in competition with the other groups, by the time they had their first hit Go-Go's were long gone - Belinda was on the tail end of solo album... 2? Bangles were still going strong though ('Eternal Flame' had yet to be released). They broke over here with the song 'Don't Call Me Baby' (still remember watching this performance):

Pop trivia: drummer is from Madness.

I remember vividly watching the video for this on the short lived weekend morning TV show 'On the Waterfront' back in 1988. I only now realise just how Beatles-ish the song is.
