Bitchin' 80s CanCon Videos

musicCBC Radio 3 just posted a blog entry entitled Bitchin’ 1980's Canadian Music Videos. Any product of the 80s who grew up watching Video Hits, Toronto Rocks and MuchMusic will appreciate the 24 YouTube videos linked to. Platinum Blonde is there, Lee Aaron is there, Martha and the Muffins are there... twice. It's a nice collection of 80s CanCon video staples.

This also gives me another opportunity to promote my YouTube favourites, a collection of videos soaked in Canadiana. CBC Radio 3 has me thinking I should add a section for Canadian music videos, in addition to Tears Are Not Enough, already on my list. Get over there and leave any suggestions in the comments.

Now that I think of it, black cars do look better in the shade.

I love how at one point in the video, as he pushes his worldly possessions along a sidewalk, he encounters an elderly woman who he gives money.
