Yazoo is one of my favorite bands of the early years. Too bad that they didn’t have much budget for music videos:

Yazoo – Situation (1982)

Some of you might remember this song featured in the movie Tango & Cash (1989):

Yazoo – Don’t Go (1982)

This next one has some personal significance to me:

Whitesnake – Here I Go Again (1982)

Here’s a girl with her very dodgy looking cheerleaders… 1982 style! (the song actually starts at 0:37 for the lazy):
