Post your favorite 80's music videos

I haven't been able to get this one out of my head for 20 years.

My favorite videos of the 80's have to be the ones from Men At Work.

Who Can It Be?
Down Under
Overkill
It's A Mistake
Dr. Heckyll and Mr. Jive

They have several more, but I couldn't find them.

EDIT: Ok, I found them. Click on "videos" in this link.

My favorite Numan video, for a song that was ludicrously never released as a single (the video was made for a TV program): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSMQuL8vtUA

Here are all of my videos on YouTube. I only post rare vids that no one else has posted (at least to that point): http://www.youtube.com/profile_videos?user=Numanoid

I'm actually in that video (in the crowd-shots anyways) - I was a junior in high school, and me and a few friends ditched, drove out to LA, because the radio station "leaked" that there would be a free show downtown.

Bronski Beat - Smalltown Boy

Yazoo - Don't Go

And even Better

I loved how the video's all told a story.

And a fun one which some of you may not have seen..

Tracy Ullman - They Don't Know with a cameo from Paul McCartney

I recently found a Rick Springfield song from the 80s.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_kNwi...elated&search=
I just love watching this video. I wonder if this drummer would like watching him too.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDYSrpcYvP8
He could be a better drummer if he actually watched another drummer play some good rock music. But why doesn't this puppet, Fash, not ahve a band? Then he'd have more girls screaming for him too.
