I like some of the ones in this thread.

I'm not familiar with this remix, it may be post 80s, but cool vid.

OMg I loved Thompson Twins. I turned 10 in 1984 so I was too young to really enjoy the 80s, sigh.

My favourite 80s music is the "pop" music for the most part. I mean one of my favourites is 99 luft balloons. Yep, I have no taste and I'm proud of it.

Just a coincidence. You posted that while I was watching the videos. I was about to put "Aces High" but decided on "The Trooper"
