80s Music Videos

personal 0 comments suggest edit

Greg Duncan is now my hero for this find. This just proves that I am still unable to let go of the 80s.

Unfortunately, some of the flagship songs of certain groups are missing in place of other videos. For example, instead of Pour Some Sugar from Def Leppard we get Photograph. Likewise where is Loveshack from the B52s?

Some notable videos (both good and bad):

There are too many to list.

    Does anyone remember a video featuring mermaids? They had really cool costumes and clam shells for makeup compacts. I don't remember the song or group (!) but it was kind of New Orderish. It was from the early 80s - right around 1984.

    I am looking for a song that no one seems to remember. The lyrics start out like this:
    Monday morning and it feels too late, how can I deal with the hands of fate, running in circles, running down this empty town to you, I ain't give it all to you, too tired to think the whole thing through, forever the road to get to you...
    Chorus:
    walking on a thin line,
    walking on a thin line,

    If ANYONE knows who sings this song, please e-mail me. I have been searching since I first heard it in 1991.
    Thanks

    the song you are looking for is by a group called "InPursuit." It was played for a while but went away. I thought it was a very good song and I can;t find it either.

    The name of the "Walking on a thin line song" is an InPursuit song by the name of "Counting on Monday" off the 1986 album "Standing in Your Shadow" I believe that's the song, and because it seems like it disappeared off the face of the Earth, I can't google the lyrics. Tell me if it's right!

    Thanks for the comment on InPursuit. I actually have a tape that I used to record the songs of the radio and I have it to listen to, I just wanted to know who sang it and if was available on CD.
    Thanks to everyone who spent time looking.

    Please, anyone out there know where I can find the In Pursuit song "Counting on Monday"? I used to have this song on cassette tape as well but lost it. I have been looking for this song for close to eighteen years now and find nothing on the Internet. This is one of the few sites that even mention someone remembering it!!! This song is VERY important to me.
    PS willing to trade small children for it if need be ROTFL

    Me again.....Forgot to mention that this song aired regularly on the radio in the Spring/Summer of 1987. I did not even know the name of the artist until reading this page. I find it hard to believe that there is absolutely no information on the group (In Pursuit) or the album (Standing In Your Shadow) Is this a Canadian band? I have searched google U.K. as well as Canadian music charts and find nothing. This is a great song with special meaning for me. If anyone has any information on this song or band please email me.
    Much appreciation!!

    I was able to find Standing In Your Shadow by In Pursuit on vinyl and saw the track listing. The song I am looking for is not "Counting On Monday" but "Thin Line" So all you others looking for the song take note of this. Too bad it's on vinyl :-(

    This band was playing, in this great white house, and one by one, the walls collapsed... and at the end of the video they are standing outside this house, and the whole things just falls.
    Does anybody know what I'm talking about ???? please email me ck_dexter_haven@hotmail.com

    I'm looking for the name of an old (rare) 80's video that would appear on MTV--probably between 1982-84-ish. It was not "Pink Cadillac (everyone always wants to suggest that first--or the Cars, and it wasn't that, either).
    It was a video of, to my recollection, a group of about 3-4 guys (one was particulary ugly with gross teeth and hair) who were dressed in plaid and driving around in a convertible. The video used to play fairly regularly on MTV, but I cannot remember the name of the song nor the video.
    The video actually used to irritate me a bit, but now I want to see it for old times' sake. Seems like I remember them stopping at a stopsight or light or something in the video (I was maybe aged 10-12, at best, so my memory has faded.) I just remember the main guy in the video to be terribly ugly (in a bad hygiene, gross teeth kind of way).
    Ugh, any ideas?

    Christa, The group "In Pursuit" was the first band to sign the new MTM record label which Mary Tyler Moore. The album "Standing in your Shadow" had "Thin Line" on it. The video played on MTV and then left without a trace. Mainley because the record co went out of business. Why I dont know, it was a great tune and video. The Album can still be bought on various music sites.

    I'm looking for this song and having trouble finding it. I know it debuted in late Summer of 1985. I used to have a cassette called Steady Nerves by Graham Parker and The Shot. I love this song and I would play it over and over again on my boom box. You Tube has the video but I don't have a pc so I can't watch it. Can someone please help me find the video to this song so I can download it for free on my I phone. Thank you very much, I appreciate any input.
