    I make no distinction between schlock and quality. With videos, it's all the same. If you're entertained by it, that's what matters.

    Nominations welcome on this thread. I'll decide the process later as I am making this up as I go along.

    Some nominations from me ...

    Take On Me -- aha
    Hello -- Lionel Richie
    Shadows Of The Night -- Pat Benatar
    Rock Me Tonight -- Billy Squier
    Looks That Kill -- Motley Crue
    Material Girl -- Madonna
    Yankee Rose (intro) -- David Lee Roth

    I'm sure I'll think of many, many more.

    For some reason I thought Cronin at the shrink was In My Dreams. Is that the one where he's staring at fruit or something? Or is that I Can't Fight This Feeling?

    Dennis De Young ... yikes. I might have to check that out. I've burned it out of my mental rolodex.

    Any number of Rick Springfield videos apply too. Particularly Human Touch and Bop Till You Drop.

    The homoeroticism exhibit at the SJ Hall of Fame will need its own wing. Physical by Olivia Newton-John is right there with Total Eclipse of the Heart.
