There is No Other Time Like The 80’s Decade

Are you one of the many people who seem to still be stuck in the 80's decade? OK, so it was something like "a big deal", but do you ever wonder what it is exactly that makes the eighties's so darn special? It seems like the 1980's has even made a lasting impression on the kids of this generation.

For instance, think of some of the things that only kids who grew up in that era know about. Do you notice how some things seem to be magically reappearing again? That is good, no, it's great!

My Bologna
Beat It
Another One Rides the Bus
Like a Surgeon

The titles alone make me laugh. But the strength of the songs lies in the humor in the videos. "Weird Al" Yankovic just wrapped up videos for the songs on the new album. [...]
