Our I Want My MGK Weekend celebrates the end of summer with an indulgent weekend full 80’s era MTV tunes!  This weekend inspired us to look back at 80’s rock songs that had some incredibly cheesy dancing.  Elton, Billy Squire, Journey, Styx & REO made the cut. Here’s our faves….

Mick and David’s dance moves are elevated to another level of funny in this special version of the video.

 

Dancing in the Street // Silent Music Video

A "silent" music video for David Bowie and Mick Jagger's "Dancing in the Street." By Strack Azar. Voices by Oliver Zaciu and Michael Stevantoni. Bowie-scream by Keon Ali.

 

 

Billy Squire is a cool guy. He should stick to the guitar and leave the dancing to the cast of ‘Fame’ or ‘Footloose’.

 

 

 

Elton is ‘Still Standing’ and we are still laughing.  The guests at his beach party have some interesting attire & dramatic dance moves.

 

Elton John - I'm Still Standing

The video for "I'm Still Standing" was directed by Russell Mulcahy and filmed in Cannes and Nice, France. It is the second single from Elton's 1983 album Too Low For Zero, which reunited Elton with his classic band of the 1970s.

‘The Robot’ dance move is so 80’s.   This video is full of that move & some very unspecial lighting effects.

 

Styx - Mr. Roboto (Music Video)

Lyrics to Mr. Roboto: Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto Mata ahoo Hima de Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto Himitsu wo Shiri tai You're wondering who I am (Secret secret, I've got a secret) Machine or mannequin (Secret secret, I've got a secret) With parts made in Japan (Secret secret, I've got a

 

 

There’s no 80’s dancing in this one, but with the sound off, this video takes on the vibe of a Sceintology recruitment video.
