80s Greatness

Combining the greatness of Pop Up Videos with my favorite song of 1985 "Aint Gonna Play Sun City".
It is funny though, Joey Ramone's line criticizing Ronald Reagan's policy of constructive engagement rang a bell with me. It is the same policy that Bill Clinton employed when he was pushed to demand human rights in China. Look here



My favorite part: David Ruffin, Eddie Kendricks, Bruce Springsteen and Pat Benatar. Daryl Hall was great for the whole decade. Missing from this shortened video: Miles Davis, Zak Starkey and his dad (Ringo Starr), Kool Moe Dee, the Fat Boys, the Big Man, Herbie Hancock, Charlie Wilson from the Gap Band

Never seen Bono with the goat-tee.
Excellent blast from your past. My past? I had no idea this was going on...was probably in a heated (and politically correct) game of Chinese Freeze Tag.

I remember the song, but never knew what Sun City was until now. I'm also surprised that you didn't appear in the video like you did in the We Are the World video that you edited.

When will the song Dubai City come out?
