Wake up and smell the coffee, MTV!

"Attention MTV: Rap and hip hop are dying!!Solution : Bring MTV back to showing videos from all different genres. Also, great way to make a ton of money DVD's of classic 1980's videos. People like me who long for the days of big hair, british invasions will easily plop down 24.95 for a DVD compliation of these great videos (ie, Bryan Adams, The Cars,ect ect). I know MTV now is an advertisement machine designed to put on as many commercials as possible and 15 second video clips to make kids buy the record or mp3, but if i remember, MTV had a much larger following back in the 80's because it was better programming"

"With an impresssive track listing this compilation doesn't disappoint.The most valuable thing here is you get songs that are rarely (if ever) on 80's compilations (for example "Don't Put Another Dime in the Juxebox" or "Why Me".) Now if I had a dollar for every 80's compilation that "Too Shy" or "Come On Eileen"appears on,I'd have a wad of cash. It is understandable why they are on here since they were heavily rotated videos on MTV in 1983. My only compliant is that an accompanying video compilation DVD or VHS Tape is not made.Also why not more CD compilations for the Class of 1985,1985,1986 and so on...."

"Mtv was at it's best and pop was never better. This collection from 1983 has some of the best songs from that great year in music. I have many 80s collections for the various singles but this is the best. "Reap the Wild Wind" soars, "Lies" is rump moving joy, "In A Big Country", "Come on Eileen" and "Always Something There to Remind Me" are pop at their finest but some of the more obscure tracks are what make this so great: "Working Girl" and "Don't Put Another Dime in the Jukebox" are examples."
