80s ‘Video Hits’ memories

When I think of the 80s, I realize more and more that I think of the videos I used to watch on Video Hits (the video show that was on CBC when I got home from school). I have piles of video tapes filled with videos I recorded off the TV, although I don’t think I’ve looked at any in years.

Thinking about all those videos that shaped my childhood, I decided I wanted to post a few here… but either my blogging software is too fragile or the cheese factor is just intense because I can’t seem to get them to work right!

For now here’s one of my favorite videos – and more links are on the way.

A-Ha – Take On Me
