I cant imagine how many popular songs or MTV videos from the 80s I have forgotten and just don't get the radio play much anymore. I know with your help we can relive some old memories just by them being listed here.

A couple I thought of today are
the salt in my tears by and Martin Briley, this song screams pure 80s and
Van Halens video for Pretty Woman which cracks me up. I listed it for video purposes.

Martin Briley is a genius. His whole discography just oozes talent.

Im gonna go with classic Saxon video Back on the Streets from Innocence Is No Excuse (1985) album.

I like pretty much everything hes done, even the 2006 "comeback" album It Comes in Waves was excellent.

Check out Put Your Hands on the Screen and A Rainy Day in New York City for starters.

This has to be one of the coolest album covers ever:

Remember Benjamin Orr from The Cars had a great solo album. The biggest song from it was "Stay the Night", but I loved the whole album.

That is a cool cover Atomik.

I think you should look up The Knacks My Sharona album cover, its pretty good.

Over the weekend I found a song I have been looking for 31 years! I only knew the chorus which was who's side are you on? By chance, I was looking at a Matt Bianco cd and I saw the chorus as a song title. So it turns out this was the long lost side! What really made it difficult was that the song had a high pitched female voice which I found out was Basia which I had no idea she was involved in. Matt Bianco has kind of a Joe Jackson vibe to him. Going to investigate his other stuff.

You should have just asked here - would have saved yourself some time!

Matt Bianco was a band not a guy (deceptive I know). They had some hits, but are most famous in the UK for this:
