MAX LIST: Top 10 Throwback Music Videos of All Time

This was a tough list to put together. Many worthy videos didn’t make the cut. Here are the top 10 throwback videos of all time…

10. Madonna – Like a Prayer

In 1989 this was a controversial video. Not so much today.

 

 

9. Twisted Sister – We’re Not Gonna Take It

Dad has anger issues.

 

 

8. Dire Straits – Money for Nothin’

Mark Knopfler wrote the song after overhearing a worker at an appliance store in New York City commenting on a music video. Sting sings “I Want my MTV”.

 

7. Cyndi Lauper – Girls Just Want to Have Fun

That’s WWF(E) legend “Captain” Lou Albano playing the role of Cyndi’s father.

 

6. David Lee Roth – Just A Gigolo

The funniest video on the list…it makes fun of some of the biggest music stars of the 80’s.

 

5. Michael Jackson – Smooth Criminal

This video is so…smooth.

 

4. The Cars – You Might Think

This was the coolest video ever when it came out.

Cutting edge for 1986.

Still one of the most unique videos ever made.
