Movie Reviews

Wish there were a couple more titles
terip | Cadiz, Ohio USA | 01/16/2004

"Nice, small selection of popular 80's hits. Collection seems a little short with only 6 videos.Titles included in this set are:"Take on Me" a-ha (1985)
"Love Shack" B-52's (1989)
"Drive" The Cars (1984)
"Whip It" Devo (1980)
"Keep Your Hands To Yourself" Georgia Satelites (1986)
"New Sensation" INXS (1987)"
Great videos at a decent price!

"Buy a DVD of videos from the 80s? What? Am I nuts? Sure, I taped huge numbers of the videos years ago, but this is DVD, right?


I'll confess that the main reason I bought this DVD is for a-ha's "Take on Me" video. It won top honors in its year of release as video of the year. Time has been kind to it. The video and the music hold up well.

The B-52's "Love Shack" holds up well too. If you'll look, you'll see a pre-Superstar Ru Paul dancing in the video (Ru and the 52's are from the Atlanta/Athens, GA area).

Devo's "Whip it" is still one of the oddest and guiltiest pleasures to come around.

The Georgia Satellites' "Keep your hands to yourself" is a hillbilly rock song worthy of praise and one I'd forgotten.

"Drive" by the Cars and "New Sensation" are probably the two best produced videos on the DVD. They both show off the groups and are more "classy" than the others.

All in all, I sure yearn for the days when MTV played videos all day and night long and allowed us to enjoy music in a whole new way. I also yearn for videos where the people in them seemed to be having fun....

Worth the 8 bucks it costs!
Another deceptive title

"Hits of the 80's sounds like a lot of videos from the 80's, not true, there are just 6 videos. Reading the description on the item when I bought it that info was kept a secret."
Nice way to start a collection

"This is not a bad deal for $8, not a whole lot of selections some may feel but Overall a fairly decent deal. Got to get your feet wet eventually and this seems a safe way to go."
