How about we post some of or favourite and most entertaining videos/performances here? It's been a while since we've had a dose of fun.

I'll kick things off with The Human League on Top of the Pops Christmas 1981: back when men were men and so were women - and vice versa:

Looking forward to watching yours...

think we're from the same era Eska! What about Adam Ant and Prince Charming? I even remember the moves:$ and I knew a girl who wore Adam Ant-type make-up - not me, honest!!

Ok I'm another one from the same era. I grew up loving the music of the 80s. But for something slightly early for me, but had my mouth wide open in sheer bogglement, here's Kate Bush:

25 years ago I saw Queen at St. James's Park. Status Quo were the support.

WOW, can't beat a bit of bushy...

Adam Ant was never my thing really, although he is beautiful.

Here's David Bowie doing the best standing in a smokey room with a torch of all time. My main thing as a kid.

This is one of my favourite songs from my era, don't know why but it is catchy and the video is quite good, the glorious Spice Girls:

Great idea! Love all the videos posted so far - never get enough of Bowie. Heres my contribution of videos I enjoy watching recently to take mind of PhD:

A song from Talking Heads 'Stop Making Sense' concert - its hard to pick one as the whole concert is brilliant!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsksSWOxq2Y

Ukuleles doing Ernio Morriconne
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLgJ7pk0X-s

I think the recent Cadbury advert is brilliant, both the video and the song choice!:

And on the subject of Kate Bush love this!:

For those into the 80s, this parody of Total Eclipse of the Heart might hit the spot:

I am a fan of Korean pop and sometimes there are some AMAZING videos:

A very, urm, colourful, video called "Lollipop"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIRW_elc-rY

Love the dance co-ordination of a boyband with (far too?) many members:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RePjMjmKtqI

And finally, an insane k-pop Alice in Wonderland theme :)

Love this one so much. The eagle-eyed of you will recognise the lead singer from the first video...

Hah, oh I love those Korean pop songs! Not seen any of them before.

For some reason, they (or the first one, anyway) reminded me of this song from my youth... Shampoo singing 'Trouble'. Always makes me smile.
