One of the funny things about getting older, is that you can no longer distinguish music that was actually good from nostalgia for songs that were good at the time. For me, these four songs are all smothered with nostalgia. I still think they're all fun, some genuinely good (#1), some catchy (#3 & #4), and one probably not so good (#2, but it was my favorite at the time!).
One thing nostalgia cannot conquer though, is the atrociousness of the videos. Strange imagery, storylines that seem like the "non-sex" footage from a bad porno, hideous hair and makeup, hysterical wardrobes. . . All four of these videos are a visual assault, quite distinct from each other, but very 80s.
#1 - The Warrior - Scandal (Featuring Patty Smythe)
#2 - Obsession - Animotion
