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 WINGER and their very first music video/single, "Madalaine", off their '88 self-titled debut.
DIO from 1983's Holy Diver with "Rainbow In The Dark."
The first of two L.A. GUNS videos from this week's playlist, "Never Enough" from 1989's Cocked & Loaded. (Apologies - for some stupid reason it's stretched and cropped to fit widescreen. But it's the best quality video, apart from that, I could find.)
KIK TRACEE with "Don't Need Rules" from their 1991 album "No Rules."
The single and video that introduced the world to ZAKK WYLDE, "Miracle Man" from the 1988 OZZY OSBOURNE album No Rest For The Wicked.
CINDERELLA off '90's Heartbreak Station with "The More Things Change."
Featuring the incredible pipes of Lenny Wolf, here's KINGDOM COME with "What Love Can Be" from their '88 self-titled debut.
And we end with another L.A. GUNS tune, "Speed" from their excellent 2017 album The Missing Peace. Oooooo... pretty colors.
Again, to check out the full playlist from last 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/
