In celebration, I bring - while it lasts - this find of a website with 80s music videos. I found it by way of quaxo. I'm not sure how long that site will survive as such, but as long as its there it looks fun - it has such things as ABBA, Bangles ("walking like an Egyptian", along with Lady Di and Colonel Ghadaffi), and others. Some band-names are slightly intimidating - I don't think I've ever heard of a band called "Butthole Surfers" before, nor one called "Revolting Cocks".... Note that the site requires Flash - it works well with Flash 7 in Opera.
There are some oldish ESC-entries, too - like Bobbysocks (with "La Det Svinge"), Celine Dion (for Switzerland with "Ne Partez Pas Sans Moi") and Carola Häggkvist (sp?) (with "Främling", while wearing something looking like a variation of an old Soviet Red Army field uniform?).
Speaking of Soviets, anyone ever heard of a band called CCCP, with a song called "American Soviets"? It was slightly peculiar, but seemed centred on Glasnost and Perestrojka - oddly, it also included footage of RMS Carpathia, the Cunard steamer that rescued the Titanic survivors.
Now, to bed - I just need to watch a couple more videos first....
