1984: The Year in Videos
ENTER THE VIDEO TIME MACHINE…and see the best music videos from 1984.
When a generation turned on MTV and fell in love with a cross dressing
new waver named Boy George, an eccentric siren named Cyndi Lauper, five
fashionable Brits with super high production values, an androgynous soul
singer who played guitar like Jimi Hendrix, a crucifix adorned Marilyn
Monroe like crooner and down home working class all American rockers…
let’s go back and spend a few hours in a simpler era that seemed so
outrageous at the time. The Music Video Jockeys responsible for the
weekly Eye Candy VJ series playing all around town have wrung their
hands and picked through their vast collection to bring you the very
best music videos from 1984. The undeniable hits, the underground gems
which evolved into classics and even a few of the forgotten numbers
which now make us chuckle.
This show will be organized into two
segments…at 7 when people are being seated we’ll play a few of the more
forgotten curios released during that time…at 7:30 we pull out the big
guns. Throughout the show will be ads, MTV spots and even a News clip
or two from that very same year. It literally will be like going back
in time to 1984.
