6. “We Don’t Talk Anymore”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Cliff Richard[/lastfm]

This video has all the most commonly used effects in music videos of the early ’80s: clone silhouettes, fog machine, bad hair, lonely dude in a tight v-neck t-shirt singing in the middle of it all.

We wonder if Cliff Richard knew that, as the sixth video ever played on MTV, his video would be the grandfather video to all the rest of the pop ballad music videos ever made ever. EVER.
