I chose Heartbeat b/c the video was just as stupid as the song. However, Dancing in the Streets is 2nd, but I have to admit that one gives me a chuckle anytime I see it.  :D

My pick was "Dancing in the Street" but it was tough to choose.  They are all pretty awlful, but at least some are fun (at least to me), especially "Rock me tonight".

And my write-in pick would be Tears for Fears - Shout.  I don't like the video, song or group!

Sorry folks. I went for 'other'. One of the worst is Cutting Crew's 'I just died in your arms tonight' video with the wierd interlacing pictures - it went on through the whole song!

What I consider bad videos is that stylised black and white video thing they did in the late 80s. Dollar's 'Oh L'amour', Bangles 'Eternal Flame' and Boy meets girl's 'Waiting for a star to fall' were videos I was bitterly dissapointed in considering I love the songs so much.

Out of the choices I had I picked Cher's If I could turn back time. Not to say I don't Love Cher, cause I do. But her outfit freaked me out.

I definitley think there are worse vid's...just can't think of any right now.

If I recall correctly, I believe I'd heard that the video for "Rock Me Tonight" ruined Billy Squier's career because of the pink tank top he wore in it. Not exactly the colour to wear if you want to be a serious rocker, is it! :D Serious MALE rocker, that is!

Cher "If I Could Turn Back Time"

I can't stand Cher anyway, but this video and song (and I tried to think of others not on the list) are absolutely horrible!  >:(

I went with Rock Me Tonight.  I love the song and Billy Squier...but someone forgot to tell the boy he can't dance.  I was embarassed for him.

Taco - "Puttin' on the Ritz"

Poor Taco, everybody picks on Taco! :'(

I picked Bowie and Jagger 'coz it was so annoying.  They showed it at the Cinema, and I used to go to the movies A LOT back then.

Cher: If I Could Turn Back Time.  More like "If I Could Turn BACKSIDE! :D

Oh, here's one I despised: Steve Winwood -- "Valerie."  Maybe that's because I despise Steve Winwood.  "Valer-eeeee, call on meeee, I'm the same boy I used to beeeee"
:P
