Stranger Fruit

There goes Saturday …

If, like me, your teenage years were spent listening to 80’s music, (and you thus remember when MTV used to play music) this site will probably bring back memories – a listing of 80’s videos available on YouTube. Prepare to walk down Amnesia Avenue.

    How sad. We lived way out in the boonies and couldn’t get cable until I was in high school; I’ve never seen the videos for most of the 80s songs I know. That site could keep me busy for weeks…

    Professor, were you in Ireland then or already in the States? Did MTV differ in offerings across the pond?

    In a related issue, Janet’s colleague, Julie, clued me in to a similar site just before 4th of July weekend. Here were my picks from that one.

    Thanks for assisting with my further procrastination and nostalgia.

    I was in Ireland for the 80’s … only came here in 94. We had MTV Europe … similar but different. Much of the music the same, all the VJs different.
