How did you post it?

If you click on the video (not on the Play icon) it takes you to the YouTube page for it. On the right, grab the contents of the 'Embed' box and post that. LJ understands video posts from YouTube, Google Video, and some others. They convert it into some funky LJ-markup automatically when you post it.

This is one of my most favorite albums of all time. *sigh* :)

that's awesome. so those guys were always cheesy, huh? they weren't, like, cool when they first came out and then got dated.

Oh yeah, they were always cheesy - but that was popular in the 80s. :-)

Ahhh one of my favorite 80s tunes, and yet I had never seen the video (Cable TV/MTv was a rare treat... except for the periods my father managed to steal cable).

A bit overdone on the mouth sync, but not too bad. I prefer this genre' of music video over some others that have, say, the band pretending to be firemen - here they are playing music, but in an unlikely setting.

Oh, Happy Thanksgiving! I am Thankful I have so many interesting people to connect and communicate with! Now, to prep a turkey. Yay, Turkey!
