Five Funny 1980s Music Videos | They’re So Bad, They’re Good

Rubik's Cube

It’s the decade we all love to hate: the 1980s. Some call it the decade that taste forgot, and with good reason. Do you remember the fluro fashions, tragic dance moves, and bad haircuts?

They’re all here in all their glory, so step back in time with these fab five clips … if you dare.

“You Spin Me (Round Like a Record)” by Dead or Alive

I still remember the first time I saw this music video. I was playing SingStar and actually couldn’t sing because I was doubled over with laughter. I guess lead singer Pete Burns was attempting to be sexy here, but those dance moves, that extreme mullet, and the eye patch totally missed the mark.

“Safety Dance” by Men Without Hats

In this video Men Without Hats singer Ivan Doroschuk seems to inspire a village with his Safety Dance. The choreography looks pretty stupid if you ask me, but it’s enough to encourage a lute playing midget, a mad blonde woman, and assorted other medieval types to join in.

“Tarzan Boy” by Baltimora

The 80s were pretty camp, but Jimmy McShane of Baltimora takes it to a whole new level in this video. The dazzling eye make-up and jazz ballet dance moves made me giggle. But when he sexily lowered his pleather jacket to reveal that Tarzan sash I was in stitches.

“Break It Up” by Carl Lewis

Yes, this video stars that Carl Lewis. Although just in case you weren’t sure, he includes some of his greatest Olympic victories. It’s a good thing too, because it reminds us that he really is a talented guy. It’s just a shame he didn’t realize his skills don’t extend to singing, or making good music videos.

“The Warrior” by Scandal

This clip seems to have taken its inspiration from the X-Men comics. Some weird mutants dance around a guy that looks suspiciously like Wolverine. Then there’s some sort of love affair between Wolverine and lead singer Patty Smyth, because nothing’s as sexy as mutants and a smoke machine. God bless the 80s!

    Ms. Felipe Mathers I didn’t know Filipe was a girl’s name. What kind of man has a pic gallery for Dido? Do you collect Hello Kitty bags too? Do you pee sitting down Ms. Filipe? No wonder you like Eminem, you probably want to elope with him after humping a moose. March 2, 2007 at 4:03pm
