80s Music Video of the Week

This week's video is Glass Tiger's 1986 hit "Dont' Forget Me (When I'm Gone)."

The first great thing is this band is Canadian, which is a plus for awesome 80's videos.

The U.S. video for this single is a lot less exciting. It's basically just a mock live performance. It doesn't compare to this Canadian version.

The awful hair, singing in his bedroom, keyboard player on two keyboards at once while being way into the singing the song, and the creepy ass 80's wedding make this version a standard of awesomely bad 80's videos.

The song title would also have been a good phrase for AJ to say to Arizona State, since I'm sure they're happy to never see him again.
