The Most Amazing Piece of Retro YouTube Junk You’ll See Today

If you’re looking to kill about nine minutes, check out this long lost footage from the 1984 American Music Awards. Back then, the award show sensitively featured categories like “Favorite Black Single” and “Favorite Black Album.” Things have changed a touch since then. Some things, however, are very much the same. Take, for example, Prince, who is a near parody of himself as he accepts his awards.

Ultimately though, while it’s campy fun to revisit this award show from twenty-six years ago (!), I’m really left with only one over-arching thought: damn, 1984 had some good music.

Bonus points for whoever thought to pair Madonna and Huey Lewis.

Via Miu von Furstenberg
