Totally Awful Videos from the 80s. Totally.

As musical accompaniment while working at home we played a DVD of 80s videos. Now we both have musical iron stomachs and can put up with some awful music, like Starship’s ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now’ and Culture Club’s ‘Karma Chameleon’. However three videos were simply too much to take and got skipped within the first minute. This terrible trio are worthy of mention:

  • Mel and Kim – Showing Out (Get Fresh at the Weekend)
  • T’Pau – China in your Hand
  • Cutting Crew – (I just) Died in Your Arms Tonight

We’re not at the end of the DVD yet. I think I can stand Katrina and the Waves singing ‘Walking on Sunshine’ since the song is so upbeat but it is going to take an effort greater than saving the Seattle Monorail to watch UB40 and Chrissie Hynde singing “I Got You Babe’.

Postscript: Jean is having big trouble watching Cliff Richard’s ‘Wired for Sound’. I, on the other hand, think it would make a great cover for Sturgeon General, played instrumental with a dub beat.
