The Lyrics

I'm too young to remember the '80s, back when MTV played actual music videos instead of the tragic reality shows on now, but I love '80s music videos. This offers a synopsis of three '80s videos that I consider classics. In this order, the videos described are: "Rio" by Duran Duran, "Material Girl" by Madonna, and "Fantasy" by Aldo Nova. The latter may be less familiar, but it's a great video. Note: This could also be considered a parody of Weird Al's "Headline News". Don't comment reminding me of that.
Once there was this band who
Took a trip to Antigua and brought along their spray paint
And when they finally got there
There were these girls all over the island
They said they were all named Rio
But who names their kid that?
Mmm mmm mmm mmm, mmm mmm mmm mmm

Once there was this girl who
Swore that one day she would be the biggest pop star ever
And when she finally made it
She saw some guys who offered her jewelry
And so she got it and waved it
Like she just didn't care
Mmm mmm mmm mmm, mmm mmm mmm mmm

When MTV played music
Instead of crap that makes me sick

And then there was this guy who
Wore a leopard suit so tight that it outlined his wiener
And when he finally came to
He broke a door with his laser guitar
He couldn't quite explain it
It'd always just be there

Mmm mmm mmm mmm, mmm mmm mmm mmm (repeat for a while)

Ah ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah ah (repeat until fade)
