BOTB Results: Who "Worked It" Best?


Friends, we definitely worked the rock and roll tributes to vocational responsibilities...it was oh sooooo close, but I'm not a bit surprised that our winner!  

Donna Summer: "She Works Hard for the Money"
Lee, Debra, Janet, Mirka, Birgit

Huey Lewis and the News: "Working for a Livin'"
Mike, John

***Dire Straits: "Money for Nothing"***
Mary, Alex, Stephen, Chris, Debbie, Mike

In my humble opinion, Dire Straits is more than than the "sultans of swing," they are rock and roll gods (little g gods, people...little g) and deserve any and all praise! And "Money for Nothing" has to be in their top three. In the age of MTV glory, this song surely was played to death, but I'm okay with it.

To the victors! Spin it one more time, boys:

  2. It was played to death but it nailed music videos so well.

  3. We have to move these 'color' tvs. When did we switch to just saying tvs? I wonder if Amazon sells black and white TVs?

  4. Agree that Dire Straits deserved the win, but I still like Donna Summer and it was good to see that I am not the only one. Nice race between Donna and Dire, but no tears from me for Huey.

  5. Terrific Battle, DOC CHERDO! And I'm pleased to see the outcome turned out srait.

    One of the truly classic MTV music videos which would certainly be in my Top 5, and more likely Top 3. Let's see...

    1) 'The Old Man Down The Road' - John Fogerty

    2) 'Come On, Eileen' - Dexy's Midnight Runners

    3) 'Money For Nothing' - Dire Straits

    Yip! Top 3.
