Friday Music – 1982 Edition

In 1982 MTV was in full swing and a LOT of songs really made a splash because of the whole video thing – Enjoy!

Keep scrolling – Bonus stuff at the bottom for YOU! . . .

And from Joan Jett – featuring Tommy James . . .

And this from 1983 – Sweet Dreams ( Are Made of This ) from The Eurythmics is what most people today think of when you reference the song Sweet Dreams . . .

Number 42 on Billboard’s Top 100 for 1982 – Trivia for YOU! – in 1982 1 out of 4 quarters in circulation were in the coin boxes of video games – You’re Welcome . . .

Believe or Not – Charted #56 in 1982 – from The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra . . .

This short clip of an interview and the live performance are from 1982 – Bonus points question – do you recognize the guy at the keyboard at the beginning and the white piano during the performance ??

A Hint at the insistence of my Blushing Bride – and it’s kind of a give away but here you go – Go ahead – guess who it could be . . .

Few hits achieved the international magnitude of “Runaway” – May God bless you Del – there is no depression in Heaven . . .

And I’ll get out of here with this one – I know – it’s from 1983 – the audio track has been stuck in a loop in my head for just about a week – even the damn video has been leaking out around the edges – LMAO! – that’s why MTV WAS so successful . . .

Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
