Good stuff :) The first U2 video I ever saw was this one, from 1980, still a favourite:



"War" was my first U2 album (tape), listened a lot to that one.

Moroder! Limahl! I listened to the Never Ending Story all the time (the instrumental version too). Big fan of Giorgio Moroder.

There's a lot of wonderful cheese from the 80s, it's hard to pick just one favourite, really...guilty pleasure, I suppose the Police Academy 4 soundtrack counts - I had that on tape and actually bought the LP from ebay a couple days ago... :)



Another lovely tune by Michael Winslow (aka Motor Mouth Jones from the Police Academy films):

This glorious piece of cheese from 1983 is pretty high on my list, both because of the fantastic video and the fab italo disco track!

Rock Steady Crew! This makes me want to finish my breakdance game.

Wanted to post the official video for Uprock as well (also by the Rock Steady Crew) but it seems it's no longer available on YouTube. :(
