With the launch in 1981 of MTV, music videos entered into the fabric of the lives of all of us that came of age in this totally amazing decade. Some of the videos were amazing, some were ground-breaking, some were funny, and some were downright weird. We love the Literal Videos series on Funny or Die, with its fresh look at some of our favorite music videos from the 80s. Enjoy the clever lyrics that reflect what’s happening in the videos – you know, like it’s literal. Here are some of our favorites.
