80s…. MusicbySaje

The other day I heard this song playing at work and was reminded of my childhood. My dad had a really close friend who use to find great music and movies and make duplicates for us. Back in the 80s and 90s, those friends were as good as GOLD when it came to entertainment. Well, at least in Iran! Finally I asked around and found out the song I was humming to was Self Control by Laura Branigan. I got home that day, and started YouTube-ing. I think I actually found most of the songs from my childhood, amazing how this thingamajig (read internet!) works. Here are some of the videos I found, consider yourselves warned, these videos are tipping the cheese-o-meter on the red side. I LOVE IT!!!! One Night in Bangkok – Murray Head

a-ha – Take On Me

Take on me is one of the first few music videos I remember watching back in my “mother land”. I didn’t speak that much English back then so I was just all about the drawings and the cute guys with awesome 80s hair; Morten Harket was super hot!!!! So every time I hear this song it reminds me of watching music videos on Betamax tapes over the weekends from when I was maybe 6 or 7. Enjoy! sa
