    'Time Won't Let Me' by The Smithereens. From the "Timecop" film soundtrack. Jean-Claude Van Damme stars in the film and also in the music video appearing with The Smithereens which is neat.

    Whoa! I never even knew that video existed! I watched MTV a lot at the time, and I don't even remember them playing it.

    Rio by Duran Duran is my #1--the first video I really went--yow, some thought went into this.
    The shots from the mountain overlooking the sea are also crazy good.

    Is This Love by Whitesnake. :p

    Also Elected by Alice Cooper (1972). Way before videos were "videos". And still arguably the greatest, or at least most humorous one ever made. Leave it to Alice to be on the cutting edge of satire way before it became passe. :)

    None; that's a young mans' game... without judgement or further comment. Do kinescopes count?
