I don't know, is this a consensus pick for one of the best music videos of the 80s? If it's just me, then let me properly introduce you. This is a song and video by George Harrison, the lead guitarist of the Beatles, the guy who wrote "Something" and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," and it's more than a little unexpected. Apparently everyone was drugged by whatever was in the air back then, because "Got My Mind Set On You" is what George Harrison was into making post-Beatles. This video is good - Harrison plays an unplugged electric guitar while items in the room move cartoonishly - until it gets great. Harrison sets down his axe, backflips off his chair, and busts into some sort of jazz ballet. Reminder: This is a Beatle.
