When all else fails -- lose yourself in nostalgia

Warning: you will lose a lot of time with this time suck.

That is my suggestion for the day and I make it thanks to the excellent spot by Jeff . Things not happy for you? Kill the day by flipping through over 400 80's music videos. Bear in mind, if you are looking for any Twisted Sister or any of the outstanding 80's metal, this collection will leave you cold. If, however, you are (and I realize I reveal too much about myself with my selections, buuuuuut) excited to see any of the following, then go forth and explore:

*Lloyd Cole and the Commotions

*Echo and the Bunnymen, not to be confused with Pseudoecho and the Bunnyrabbits, not that anyone would do that, right?

*Der Kommissar, by After the Fire

*99 luftballons, Live!, by Nena

*Sunglasses at Night, by Corey Hart

The fun will last for hours.

UPDATE: Found Falco's Der Kommissar and Rock me Amadeus, including a live version. I can't decide which one I like better, truthfully.

Would you believe, that guy has uploaded nearly 100 more videos since I wrote that post? And he's not the only one on YouTube doing it, either...

Holy smokes, The Honey Drippers! I'm having flashbacks.

What an amazing site! I'm watching Scritti Politti as I write this...

When I went there the other day the videos were running so slowly that it was more annoying than anything. I'll have to try it again though.
