MTV Video Music Awards

The 2009 MTV Video Music Awards payed tribute to music icon Michael Jackson last night, including an introduction by Madonna and a pretty cool performance by Janet Jackson. Madonna and Michael Jackson weren’t the only 80s influences popping up at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards though.  According to, “Passion Pit’s The Reeling pays homage to the 80s not only in its sound but with the creative animated video where everything is a collage.”  The video was nominated in the Breakthrough Video category but lost to Lessons Learned by Matt and Kim. Check out Passion Pit’s video… it is pretty cool.

Also nominated in the same category was “Heads Will Roll” by the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s

The Best New Artist award went to Lady GaGa for “Poker Face”.  Even though I can hear simularities to the 80s in some of the synth sounds, I’m not real sure that Lady GaGa is that 80s sounding.   That being said, I know that some people do consider her music to be very 80s sounding, here’s the video, you decide…
