Recently, I found myself down a rabbit hole of 1980s music videos. Most bands featured I remembered as clearly as yesterday, complete with the outrageous fashions the world may rightly never let see the light of day again. And dang, was that ever a fun way to burn a half hour.
Music Television, or commonly known as MTV, became the intersection of culture, fashion and music in the ’80s. And for those who witnessed it, the world was never the same. In days before online video games or social media feeds, we hung with friends on a sofa watching music move from the radio to our television screens.
