Music Video Monday: TMNT

Yep, that’s right.  We’re kicking off another theme week here at PopRewind.com.  This one will probably hit home with the majority of our readers (based on your user icons): Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Week.  So, let’s take a look at the musical side of the four green heroes. “Turtle Power” by Partners in Kryme: Some bits of this are borderline...

Music Video Monday: “Weird Al” Yankovic

In celebration of a new album, we’re kicking of “Weird Al” Week here at PopRewind with another round of Music Video Monday dedicated to the music that’s been keeping us laughing all these years. First up, it’s the song that sold me on “Weird Al”:  “Amish Paradise”.  It’s also the biggest controversy from Yankovic’s career, spawning a feud with rapper...

Music Video Monday: Ghostbusters

In celebration of the movie’s 30th anniversary, we’re kicking off Ghostbusters week a week late here at PopRewind.com! Did you grow up on the first movie?  Lose your mind when the second movie trailer dropped?  Had every episode of The Real Ghostbusters cartoon memorized?  Did I just describe my own childhood? Anyway, here are some slime inducing music videos to...

Music Video Monday: Michael Jackson

With the release of a new album last week and an appearance of a hologram over the weekend, it seemed appropriate to kick-off Monday morning with a round of Michael Jackson music videos.  Let’s face it, you heard “Billie Jean” at two weddings this weekend and you still aren’t tired of it. “Leave Me Alone” doesn’t get as much radio...

Let’s change our approach toward Mondays.  Instead of being the boring drudge day of the week we dread, let’s start getting excited for another round of music video fun!  Okay, fine.  I confess, even I’m not that cheery on a Monday morning, but attitude is everything (Garfield, I’m looking at you). If you grew up watching Nickelodeon in the early...

Music Video Monday: Tears For Fears

Ugh. It’s a Monday morning. I don’t want to be up this early. You don’t want to be getting ready for work. Yet, here we are. Let’s take a few moments to make our Monday morning a little better with 80s hit makers Tears For Fears. Put me down in the category of not realizing “Everybody Wants To Rule The...

Music Video Mondays: Thomas Dolby

If you own ten 80s compilations, there is a good chance Thomas Dolby appears on at least 75% of them.  He’s best known for his charged up electronic funk tunes with offbeat lyrics and memorable music videos.  This time, we will be taking a look at his two songs that often end up on those mega-hits collections. First up, it’s...

Music Video Mondays: Wham!

Somewhere between 1998 and 2001, record stores were officially flushing their remaining cassette stock.  I’ll never forget the time I walked in with $2.00 and left with 16 new and sealed tapes.  If it looked even remotely interesting, I grabbed a copy. My scores ranged from the obscure such as Brian Brain’s Time Flies When You’re Having Toast to “your...
