Search for an Eighties Music Video
A warm welcome to our video page. Here you can access the many hundreds of video pages here at simplyeighties.com. Whether you're an ABBA fan or you prefer ZZ Top, you'll find them all here. The 1980s was bubbling with creativity and innovation, and no one can ever accuse the great decade of ever being boring. With the arrival of MTV, this was very much the video age, and pop artists embraced it enthusiastically to bring us a very diverse range of videos. Some spent a fortune on filming in exotic locations (Duran Duran's Rio video is one such example) while others experimented with outlandish hair and fashion styles. All of them were vying for attention on our TV screens in this new and highly competitive market, with some artists pushing the boundaries of taste and decency. Indeed, getting your video banned was a sure-fire way of having a massive hit on your hands! It's unlikely that anyone will ever experience anything quite like the 80s ever again. We can all feel privileged to have been part of something very unique indeed.
