Movie Reviews

Technically not totally
Jeffrey Thames | Houston, TX | 04/26/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"What keeps this collection from being a 5-star package (apart from the grainy quality of some clips which probably can't be helped) is the substitution of the original "Tainted Love" video with a 90s-era remix (as also found on Alternative '80s: 20th Century Masters - The DVD Collection, also reviewed by this author). Beyond that, it's an authentic line-up of original clips as seen on MTV and the like (with one exception) in the golden age of music video.

Here's the program:

1. The Buggles - Video Killed the Radio Star
2. Devo - Whip It [I'm guessing this was taken straight from either We're All Devo or The Complete Truth About De-Evolution given the abrupt cutoff]
3. Blondie - Rapture
4. Duran Duran - Hungry Like the Wolf
5. Joe Jackson - Steppin' Out
6. Soft Cell - Tainted Love [remix; see opening paragraph]
7. The Plimsouls - A Million Miles Away
8. The Fixx - One Thing Leads to Another
9. Madness - Our House
10. Men Without Hats - The Safety Dance
11. Big Country - In a Big Country
12. Bananarama - Cruel Summer
13. Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Relax [the original "allegedly banned" (per Wikipedia) S&M-themed version not shown on MTV]
14. a-ha - Take on Me [the audio track has been replaced by the original LP mix but it only makes a difference at the very end]
15. ABC - When Smokey Sings"
