[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fx7GqfQCZeg  again...YIKES!!!

...is it me...or did people actually think this was cool...? I dunno,I always thought it was some kinda goof back then, but it is kinda fun, in a real lamebrain way.  Anybody remeber any oddball 80's stuff?

 EDIT: in fact...this about sums it up! BounceGiggle

the first song "Obsession" was the theme song for Saturday Night's Main Event for a long time back in the day.

Man, that brings back some memories!
I remember roller skating at the local roller rink to that Obsession song when I was a kid.

I also remember skating to these songs too...

These are all great 80's videos and music (except for the Weird Al  Smile) Obssession, I Ran, and One Night In Bankok. New Wave was the pinnacle of all forms of music. It was the perfect blend of all things. The very apex of all music. Even better than 80's Rock/Heavy Metal. When I have more time I'll add many of my own New Wave favorites, but for now I'll leave you with

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

BLASPHEMER!
There is a reason why New Wave faded out and Rock hasn't.
That's not to say I don't like some New Wave...I do.
But to say it was better than rock/metal...no way!

BERLIN!  Damn, I'm old . . . I saw them live, opening for THE THOMPSON TWINS at the Garden State Arts Center I guess 1985 (the TWINS had "Hold Me Now" as a hit record at the time -- I left the concert hating that record.) BERLIN was quite absurd onstage, including a crotch-grab lead singer twirl . . . but to their credit, memorable! 
Scott, if your examples of this New Wave pinnacle are these acts, I'm concerned....  Lookingup where are THE TALKING HEADS, U2, BLONDIE, JOY DIVISION or NEW ORDER, ULTRAVOX, THE FIXX, CULTURE CLUB, INXS, THE CURE, COCTEAU TWINS, DEPECHE MODE, ELVIS COSTELLO . . . ? 
WANG CHUNG?   BounceGiggle  Thanks for the memories! 
I do think WEIRD AL YANKOVIC is underrated (though I don't claim to be a fan).  And I think the pinnacle of 20th century western Pop, or at least its logical conclusion, is BECK's "Odelay." 

Ash, the HERBIE HANCOCK video of "Rock it" was a delight to see again after a long time.  Great record.

 Crimeny...now I gat "Talk Talk" stuck in my head! The thing about New Wave is,in my case at least,is ,wheteher your a fan or not,the songs tend to stick in your head...and the images are oddly compelling...just weird self ...dare I say...abuse? Kinda like...BAD MOVIES?
 
Is it just me,or do chicks who speak German somehow hot? I mean,German is such a clunky,robotic type of language...yet Nena makes it sound...sexy!

In about '84,I went to NY..and my brother Mike got me turned on to this stuff.....

[youtube=425,350]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLahs7yCprQ

Iusta listen to alotta Punk like BLACK FLAG,too...but it's not really good,laying around on a Sunday morning kinda music... but some punk(ie.the RAMONES,is just timeless,and (GASP!) happy and fun!!! What happened to bands that smiled and were happy? And FUN?

Joan Jett-saw her at the Hartford County Fair(!?!) in '86....god...she's soooo beautiful...and she was nice and loved the fans,and they loved her...I still listen to her music!

Your right RCMerchant how did NENA do it with the language, she must be a national heroine.

Scott, if your examples of this New Wave pinnacle are these acts, I'm concerned....   where are THE TALKING HEADS, U2, BLONDIE, JOY DIVISION or NEW ORDER, ULTRAVOX, THE FIXX, CULTURE CLUB, INXS, THE CURE, COCTEAU TWINS, DEPECHE MODE, ELVIS COSTELLO . . . ?


It was just a quick list. I had to go to bed last night. There were no bad New Wave songs  Smile. I'll post some better ones like you said with THE TALKING HEADS, BLONDIE, U2, B52'S, THE FIXX, and more. Right now I have to go to the gym.

New Wave was the pinnacle of all forms of music. It was the perfect blend of all things. The very apex of all music. Even better than 80's Rock/Heavy Metal.

It took decades for music to become New Wave and after that it's been all down hill ever since.  Smile

I have yet to figure out if I should thank Andrew for the youtube mod or curse him.   Smile

The 80s was a great time for music.  The bands didn't care, and were experimenting with everything.  Here are some of my favorites from then:
