I Can Think of 99 Better Ones

Who doesn't love the 80s? But do you love the 80s enough to watch the video for "99 Luftballons" (aka "99 Red Balloons") over and over for a solid hour? If so, tune in to VH1 Classic this Sunday at 2 p.m. EST and you will have your chance, thanks to a $35,000 donation by a viewer. Of all the videos in history — or even the 1980s — that's the best this person could choose? What about Michael Jackson's "Thriller?" Or Prince's "Purple Rain?" Still, for kitsch alone, that's a pretty good choice. I mean, at minimum, it's better than Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun."

(Hey, what do you want? It's been a slow and not particularly blog-worthy week.)
