Best music videos of the 80s: Help us



To honor MTV's 25th anniversary, we've begun compiling a list of the best music videos of the 80s. And as always: We want your help and participation.

Sure, some are obvious picks: Michael Jackson's "Thriller," a-Ha's "Take On Me," and just about anything by Madonna. But try thinking outside the box. Think of maybe the best video from your favorite artist. Maybe the best video from Talking Heads? (I'm thinking "Once In A Lifetime") or favorite video from ZZ Top, Van Halen, Phil Collins, Frankie Goes To Hollywood. And don't forget the hair bands and rap bands. And ask yourself questions like, "Is "Every Breath You Take" really a good video?" And if you had to pick only a couple U2 or Madonna videos, which ones would it be?

Drop us a comment with as many picks as you want and we'll compile a list to debut later this week. And don't forget VH1 Classic is replaying the first 24 hours of MTV beginning midnight on Monday.
