The Real #1 MTV Video For The 1980’s Is…..

The number #1 video from MTV's 1980's not "Thriller" by Michael Jackson but the Australian act Inxs "With I Need You Tonight" from the late 80's.

The video was chosen by ones who won best video.  Since MTV did not have an awards show when "Thriller" was released, it was not eligible.

So, because of that, we are able to feature and highlight other videos.

We also included "Mediate" with "I Need You Tonight" because we really like the video as well.

Check out "I Need You Tonight" by Inxs and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB

The # 2 MTV Video Of The 1980’s Is……..

MTV asked the fans to vote for the top video of the 80's and it was NOT "Thriller" by Michael Jackson.  The number #2 video is "Take On Me" by A-Ha.

I dig the song and the video...and surprised P. Diddy and other hip-hop acts have not tried to sample the melody of the A-Ha smash.  As much as I like "Thriller" it was nice to see other video's get named for the top videos of the 1980's.

What do you think of MTV's choice of "Take On Me" by A-Ha as the number 2 video of the 80's?-Dr.FB

Coming To A Theatre Near You; “Thriller” The Movie

Michael Jackson

The day after it was announced that Michael Jackson made $275 million after his death, it looks like they found a way to make another quarter of a billion dollars; make a movie out of "Thriller" from MJ.

There is a bidding war for the movie and Kenny Ortega, the man behind "This Is It" is set to direct it.  The budget would be over $50 million dollars to cast the movie and for designs.  It will be set in the town Vincent Price grew up in and start from there. 

The Michael Jackson Estate has yet to sign off on it but it looks like they 100% percent will. 

What do YOU think of a Thriller movie?-Dr.FB

Michael Jackson's "This Is It" will be released on DVD & Blu-Ray January 26th.  I am surprised they did not try to get it out before Christmas, but they did say all along it would be released in early 2010.

Both the DVD and high-def versions of "This Is It" will include several mini-documentaries and other special features. The Blu-ray Disc also will include two versions each of the Jackson music videos "Smooth Criminal" and "Thriller."

with more than 60 minutes of never-before-seen bonuses for the DVD, 90 minutes for the Blu-ray, including two documentaries, “Staging the Return: Beyond the Show” and “Staging the Return: The Adventure Begins;” a costume featurette called “The Gloved One”; a cast and crew tribute dubbed “Memories of Michael”; and “Auditions: Searching for the World’s Best Dancers”.

 The Blu-ray will also feature Sony’s BD Live movieIQ feature that can create a This Is It play list and offer trivia and cast and crew background.

The regular version will be priced around $26.99 and the Blu-Ray $39.99.
