Anyone here want to see 80's music videos on DVD?

I know some of the bands like the Police are putting out video anthologies, but I'd like to see a lot of the one - hit wonder videos such as:

Twilight Zone - Golden Earring
Mexican Radio - Wall of Voodoo
Turning Japanese - The Vapors
I don't Like Mondays - Boomtown Rats
Talk Talk - Talk Talk
Big Country - Big Country

and some of the other big 80's bands or stars as well:
INXS
The Fixx
Devo
Talking heads
Billy Idol
Duran Duran
Naked Eyes

Golden Earing isn't a one hit wonder, Radar Love was a much bigger hit than Twilight Zone. Didn't they have another hit too?

I would love it if there was a channel devoted to showing videos and then I wouldn't have to buy them on DVD. Too bad MTV and VH1 have turned into the game show network.

Amen, brother.
I wish there was a "retro" MTV-style channel that just showed music videos, circa the early-to-mid '80s.

Both of the above mentioned releases seem decent, but very limited in their selection. They should put out a box-set or something.

As for the above comment about Golden Earring- I know White Lion did a remake of Radar Love in '89 that was pretty popular. But as far as the 80's go, Golden Earring's only hit was Twilight Zone in 1982. Golden Earring's version of Radar Love was released in 1973. As for that, the rest of their music was pretty crappy. I made the mistake of buying their greatest hits - which was let's see, oh yeah, Twilight Zone and Radar Love.

dont forget EBN-OZN's "A.E.I.O.U." and "Baglady". or the first few videos from IceHouse. and ya gotta have Clash. Madness and Haircut 100 bring back a few memories too. I got the pleasure of being about 20 years old during the first year of MTV....and they've been crap since 1986, for me. those early years when they would show "Ashes to Ashes" every hour.

Only one video, this video only, warrants a DVD release.

It's on digital cable too. They also show 60s videos. They have specific hours of certain decades (We are the 80's, Super 70s, '60s - I can't remember the name of the 60s show). On Tuesdays they play twofers all day.

I agree 100% with all of these! I believe I read something about DM's 101 will be released this year.

U2's Live Under a Blood Red Sky is a must have.

Love to see The Cure In Orange, too.

Our gang after roller skating went a friends house to see the beginning of MTV. First song was "Video Killed the Radio Star by the one hit wonder "The Bugles".


I have Prince, Madonna, Micheal Jackson (including Thriller), Def Leppard, ABBA, The Carpenters, Stevie Nicks on DVD.


Couple of vhs tapes crammed full like Dennis De Young, John Cougar Mellencamp, Bon Jovi etc.. I have tons of music, I recorded on 'line' on Vhs T-200 good for 10 hours. My TV was busted but the audio still came thru, and I recorded just the music on 'line' with no video signal; talk about 'workarounds'. Man what a workout using the hackers drink cola to stay up recording all night! YO

I have that, along with Devo and B52s, on VHS, but would love to upgrade to DVD. I'd like some of those others, as well, although overall, where available, I prefer DVDs that feature all the videos from one (or a few if necessary) groups to one video per group.
