Impressive four minute mash-up of 50 music videos from 1988

Originally published at:


MY GOD I miss THI’s regular mixtape releases.

These are cool and all, but it’s been forever since they churned out regular audio mashups like they used to. On to new projects.

I highly recommend downloading this entire directory:

My God, the Fine Young Cannibals really were young.


3 minute mashup, plus 1 minute message at end.

Too much Danzig face for too long. Other than that, well done.

As a kid in the 80s I didn’t like much pop music

Now I’m 40 and can’t get enough of it

Is it nostalgia if I didn’t like it at the time? The majority of stuff I liked in the 90s doesn’t do anything for me now


Disappointed this latest batch aren’t available to download.

I am still constantly surprised that I hear 80s stuff I hated and now I think it is actually really good. So many bands and artists I have a genuine new respect for.

Apart from Wham!, they’re still shit.


It’s been doing this for every year since 1979.

The 80’s in 60fps feels weird.

Just came to say, that opening AIWIY music video was the single reason I became such a big U2 fan; I was absolutely mesmerized by it. Seeing it completely mashed up into this remix oddly satisfying, in a choose your own adventure kind of way. Vive la remix culture; vive la music!

using Black Francis to play rhythm guitar for FYC was subtly brilliant.
I didn’t grow up with cable TV, so I knew the songs but not usually the videos. when I finally saw the Rob Base & Dj EZ Rock “It Takes Two” video in the late 90s, I remember remarking that it looked like the production budget was $100 and a case of Colt 45.

not that this is necessarily a bad thing.


Hey, thank you! Tried a few tracks to see what they were like and just added a nice collection to my running mix.

You’re very welcome. I really like these single downloads as the individual songs are a bit longer, but if you’re interested in a continuous, edited-together format for workouts, I’d also suggest taking a look at their mixtapes:

I’ve found I like a lot of 90’s stuff that I just flat out missed for various reasons at the time. I don’t know if I’d call it nostalgia, but I also know tastes can change for a variety of reasons. I’ve got music in my collection spanning well over a century for original recordings, and much longer than that if you consider modern recordings of older music, but obviously I can’t be nostalgic for anything much before 1970 as I didn’t live through it! (I guess I could claim some nostalgia for stuff my mom was listening to when I was a kid?)

I do keep getting hit with the realization that some songs I never thought of that much are simply anathema to my philosophy! There’s nothing like hearing a song I haven’t heard in a decade or so and starting to sing along and suddenly grinding to a halt as you realize how sexist / homophobic / racist / etc. the lyrics actually are. Ah well, one less song in the collection, I guess …
