Readers' Poll: The 10 Greatest Videos of the 1980s

This one is very similar with the other three have Michael Jackson's Thriller and Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer and a-ha Take Me On. But what I really like about this one is that it included Metallica's One, i really like that song and the music video, it was Metallic's first music video and the song was very well written and it was very smart to follow that up with very heavy and emotional clips that really catches your eye.

I think that Michael Jackson's Thriller should always take the number one spot fro top ten 80s music video because of how amazing it was the outcome turned out after so much time the making of it took, and the idea of it being a short film. A-Ha's video is very cool and out of the norm for the 80s with their comic inspired video but it cant compete with Thriller. This one and the Billboard top 10 80s music video has a lot of the same music videos but this one actually includes Eurthymics Sweet Dreams in the top 10 as it should be.

The 10 Best '80s Music Videos: Poll Results

I think this is a good top 10 rank of 80s music videos but i dont think madonna should be on it, instead of madonna they shouldve put sweet dreams by the eurythmics. Madonna's Like A Prayer is weird and not very appealing, i stopped watching it after 2 minutes because i found it boring. While Sweet Dreams by the Eurthymics has a more artistic weird thing going on, and a good weird like it makes you want to keep watching and its not boring. And i think the others are good, classic 80s music videos and musicians. i really like the diversity in them especially putting the video Walk This Way with run-D.M.C. and Aerosmith.
