Which Side of the Atlantic?

On a taxi ride to the Exeter Airport from the train station in 2007, the driver talked about great 80’s songs. I joined in, thinking that he was speaking of the New Romantic movement. Imagine my surprise when I finally cottoned on to the fact he was talking about American groups.

Here is a sampling from both sides, now:

Duran Duran: Is There Something I Should Know?

 

 

Peter Gabriel: Don’t Give Up (ft. Kate Bush)

 

 

Mike & The Mechanics: The Living Years

 

 

Roxy Music: More Than This

 

 

Spandau Ballet: True

 

 

Phil Collins: In The Air Tonight

 

 

Foreigner: I Want To Know What Love Is

 

 

Journey: Faithfully

 

 

Toto: Africa

 

 

Fleetwood Mac: Little Lies

 

 

Cyndi Lauper: Time After Time

 

 

Richard Marx: Right Here Waiting

 

 

Conclusion

Twelve videos, six from each side. Which are your favourites? I like them all.
