Animotion - Obsession

Very '80s song and video. The very fun throwaway hit from Animotion, "Obsession." I'm not exactly sure of everything going on in this video.

Devo "That's Good"

Here's another Devo song, "That's Good" from their synth-heavy 1982 album Oh No, Its Devo!  This video caused a bit of controversy at MTV. Check it out and see if you can guess why.  "Oh no" indeed!!

Devo "Whip It"

On the very cusp on the '80s, the seminal new wave band Devo released this groundbreaking and zany song and video. This was prelude of much more colorful '80s culture to come, and a sign that individualistic new wave culture was penetrating into the mainstream. "Whip It" became a hit for Devo in 1980.

Tom Petty (1950-2017)

Tom Petty (R.I.P.)

A sad loss of a classic musician who died too young. We'll miss you Tom.
