MAX LIST: Top 10 80’s Throwback Music Videos


This was a tough list to put together. Many worthy videos didn’t make the cut. Here are the top 10 80’s throwback videos.

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.


3. Peter Gabriel – Sledgehammer

Cutting edge for 1986.


2. a-ha – Take on Me

Still one of the most unique videos ever made.


1. Michael Jackson – Thriller

The most influential pop music video of all time.
