Andrew Sullivan is running a series of "Best Worst 80s Videos" on his blog, and my suggestion, the cheesefest "Total Eclipse of the Heart," made the list! Thank ye! And really, this is probably one of the most emblematic videos of the time; every cliche in place and a few that seem kinda...creepy. Like Powder is creepy. Think carefully about it and you'll understand. Actually, you don't even have to think too much.
The completely pointless visuals...it's like one word from every other line became an image. Particularly I like the dancing Muslim(or Ninja--not really sure) and the fact that when "turn around bright eyes" is sung, we literally see someone with glowing eyes. That's imagination.
