[Comments] (3) Music Video Roundup: Since our concentration is sometimes fragmented these days, Sumana and I will sometimes watch old music videos instead of something more demanding like a movie. By mutual agreement, we've been focusing on the 1980s, especially pop and new wave music. It's amazing how accessible most of this stuff is these days; we've basically been going through the Billboard charts and almost all of it is on Youtube, gated only by geolocation gates and stupid commercials. (We did get some "not available in your country" for some of the British videos, so presumably mutatis mutandis elsewhere.)

Here are some of our favorites from the past few months, in an easy-to-click list format. Share your favorites in the comments!

You're not familiar with Hall and Oates? How can you be so out of touch?

Men At Work but no Split Enz?

We watched some Split Enz videos on your recommendation and thought they were all right but not amazing. This sent us down an Oceania Youtube recommendation path, where we discovered the cool cinema-verite video for Cold Chisel's "Flame Trees".
