Recently I stumbled across the Stingray Retro channel on my cable box. All they do is play old videos from the '80s and '90s, with the occasional early 2000s vid thrown in for variety. But I'm starting to wonder if I should be watching it. I'll be sitting there, see a video from the '80s, and suddenly find myself filled with a mix of nostalgia and melancholy. I remember a bunch of those videos, having watched them when I was a teenager, and it just reminds me the late '80s were 30 years ago already. It's also sad seeing someone like Michael Hutchence, knowing he died too young.
One thing that's odd is the poor quality of some of the oldest videos. They look like they were taken off someone's old VHS cassettes. Did they come out of the vault at Muchmusic or something?
