Some were great. Some were embarrassing. But all left us wanting more, and drove us to the record stores to pick up the LPs, cassettes, or (for the rich kids) the CDs that the songs came from. They were music videos. And they ruled the world.
I've picked a few of the videos of songs from this past Saturday's METAL WORKS (to check out the full playlist just click here). You probably saw these back in the day on Miscellaneous Television or Much Music or Night Flight or Friday Night Videos, etc. etc.
**Some of the video quality on these aren't great, but I tried to find the best version of each for your trip down memory lane.**
Let's get things going with OZZY OSBOURNE. "Lightning Strikes" from 86's The Ultimate Sin.
QUEENSRYCHE with "I Don't Believe In Love" back from 1988's Operation: Mindcrime.
Off their 1991 album Tainted Angel, it's SOUTHGANG with "Boys Nite Out."
POISON, "Talk Dirty To Me" from 86's Look What The Cat Dragged In.
The quality of this recording is horrendous, and it's the only one I could find. But since most people aren't even aware that a video was made for this song, I'm including it here purely for historical purposes. SALTY DOG with "Come Along" 1990's Every Dog Has His Day.
FORBIDDEN off their 1990 album Twisted Into Form with "Step By Step."
And let's end things with a powerballad from KISS. "Forever" from 89's Hot In The Shade.
Again, to check out the full playlist from this week's show, just click here. And be sure to tune in every Saturday night at 9pm cst for two hours(ish) of Classic Metal and Hard Rock. OUR music. OUR show. METAL WORKS.
Play hard. \m/
