I was watching an tape this morning of some '80s videos i had recored a few years ago. And on this tape is a show of some sorts called... Vh1's(Top 80 Of The '80s). It is VH1's choices/picks of what they thought was the Top 80 songs of The '80s . So that had me thinking....I wonder if any of the Rewind Fam. would be able to guess what Videos made the cut. And also get some feedback, on what are some of you guys choices/picks of the Top 80 Of The '80s . Here are a couple of songs that made the list:

"She Blinded Me With Science" by Thomas Dolby & "Can't Touch This" by M.C. Hammer (yuck) [Roll Eyes]


(you)Guess Who Else Made The List????????

I was saying YUCK to M.C. Hammer's song not Thomas Dolby's...I like his song [Smile]

Hey M.G.P.(meaning ModGod Paul) I did see a couple of videos for the songs you listed.

Cher & Adam & The Ants...I'm not sure about the other two.

Starship's "we Built This City" was voted worst song by Blender magazine. Don't know if I'd say it's the absolute worst but it is very cringeworthy and deserved to get serious consideration for the worst ever.

let's see as far as the list goes

I'm Guessing

Modern English-"Melt With You"
Duran Duran-"Hungry Like The wolf"
Joan Jett-"I Love Rock N Roll"

Michael got several for sure. I think Billie Jean might have been number 1. Beat It was pretty high up too, and I think We Are the World jsut snuck in. If I remember correctly, Don't You Forget About Me and Video Kiled the Radio Star were back to back about halfway through.
