If MTV was to the 80s what pseudo reality television is to the current generation, then I must confess I REALLY miss the 80s.
That said, there is still MTV, VH-1 and music videos, but let’s face it… today’s music videos simply lack the impact and influence (and overwhelming cultural significance than all the videos that came out of the 80s.
Well, I could be wrong, but that is my general feeling. If anything, there was a certain magic about music videos in the 80s, perhaps because it was a new frontier in the way musical artists were featured. And also perhaps due to the nostalgic effect that 80s music videos have on today’s culture.
So, that said, I post my first music playlist that covers my favorite music from the 1980s.
