Certain hairstyles become so specific to an era, and they become Samuel Jackson catchphrases. As parachute pants, Members Only jackets, and South Beach activewear hit the dustbins of history, so too must we cart our beta recordings of these gems into their final resting place, VH Artistic Statement : Rudimentary music videos and performance clips go back to the origins of rock music, in many instances low budget films that Straight Ahead - Various - Best Of The 80s - 1984 (CD) extended live performances for plot or dialogue, or home videos dubbed to a soundtrack.
Artists were also given free rein to conceive their own work. Some of the most dated attempts can be found where musicians themselves engage in ham-fisted attempts at acting or directing and in the earliest attempts at conceptual art, where without adult supervision, they took flight and never really ever returned to Earth.
The qualifier is when certain styles or themes recur. War and pestilence. Videos that have the hindsight to cast the artists Straight Ahead - Various - Best Of The 80s - 1984 (CD) situations that they might envision their grandchildren themselves in, or anything that say, Kathleen Hanna touches, will live on.
Expressionless, minimalist models, presenting a nightmarish specter of mimes that appear to come to life. And yet timeless. The video to this synthpop classic was shot crisply, with Straight Ahead - Various - Best Of The 80s - 1984 (CD), measured movements that seemingly take weeks to develop. Add in that the music anticipated the electroclash fad that rocked turn-of-the-century Brooklyn, and this video has a reasonably indefinite shelf life, longer than, say, the revivalists who brought renewed attention to synthpop Oh where, oh where are you Fischerspooner?
At the time, this cheesy, over-the-top production number had shark jumping all over it. Roller skates? Olivia Newton-John, paired with screen icon Gene Kelly?
So in a major upset, I took a look at this for a certain top-five spot of old and decrepit, and lo and behold, this video looks timeless. As with Straight Ahead - Various - Best Of The 80s - 1984 (CD) Visage clip, when executed as well as this, it achieves iconic stature, as the model for unhinged overstimulated show numbers, with all eyes mugging for the camera. That sounds a lot like a certain darling TV musical show on the air featuring kids who like to mug for the camera.
You could imagine this breaking out in Grand Central Terminal. A young hipster ad executive might conceive of a piece like this, digitally inserting the screen legends. The director back in the day had the foresight to film these legends.
For being such an iconic song about kids living in America, Kim was a Brit. Weaving in at least four different scenes — including a black and white external shot wrapped around Europa, a shot of him playing with his wireless and telecomputer, Straight Ahead - Various - Best Of The 80s - 1984 (CD) shot of burning stuff, and some black and white stock footage of Ziegfried Follies — this video zips along. Showing off his belief in the brave new world of technology through his characters, Dolby himself would remain ahead of the game, starting Headspace, creating a new downloadable file format, and then later, writing ringtones for phones.

It's the total indifference of the London public just trying to stay out of it, pretending nothing out of the ordinary is going on and a drunk pop legend isn't really serenading them on the train that makes it so amazing.
Anywhere else in the world people would have immediately joined in or crowded round but the passengers just keeping to themselves, staring straight ahead and not Straight Ahead - Various - Best Of The 80s - 1984 (CD) to be the first to draw attention to what's happening is just so sterotypically 'London' it's hilarious.
Also the fact that she's so drunk she can barely remember how her own songs. Whilst wearing reindeer horns. Which she keep losing. The woman you hear say 'Is it really her'.
The man with the beard who just wants ground to open up and swallow him. He doesn't crack a smile once. I do wonder about just how spontaneous the whole thing was though.
The fact the video starts just as they do seems slightly suspicious to me. Deleted membersfmartinidratherjack and 8 others like this. Many years ago on a tube station in London I went up to a busker and kissed him as he was playing "Weather with you" as it's a song I love. He didn't flinch at all so I put a fiver into his "money pot"! He stopped singing immediately and said "Thank you very much" - everyone wondered what was going on
