MTV Top 100 of 1988 year-end countdown

"Out of the Blue" (#70) at the 10:15 mark

"Foolish Beat" wasn't ranked and Debbie Gibson's first two videos weren't placed on MTV's year-end list for 1987 either. VH1 did placed "Only In My Dreams" at #36 on their Top 40 year-end countdown for 1987.   

The Top 25:

25. Elton John - I Don’t Wanna Go On With You Like That
24. Billy Ocean - Get Out Of My Dreams, Get Into My Car
23. UB40 - Red Red Wine
22. DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - Parents Just Don’t Understand
21. Guns N Roses - Welcome To The Jungle
20. Poison - Every Rose Has Its Thorn
19. Michael Jackson - Dirty Diana
18. Van Halen - When It’s Love
17. INXS- New Sensation
16. Def Leppard - Love Bites
15. Cheap Trick - The Flame
14. Brice Springsteen - Tunnel Of Love
13. U2 - Desire
12. Whitney Houston - So Emotional
11. Steve Winwood - Roll With It
10. George Michael - Father Figure
9. Robert Palmer - Simply Irresistible

3. INXS - Need You Tonight/Mediate
2. Def Leppard - Pour Some Sugar On Me
1. Guns N Roses- Sweet Child O’ Mine

MTV Top 100 of 1989 year-end countdown

"Lost In Your Eyes" (#93) at the 2:18 mark

"Electric Youth" wasn't ranked, but was nominated for Best Art Direction for the 1989 VMAs. In 1999, it was ranked as the 10th worst video on the network's "25 Lame" countdown. Then again, by that time the network was very much unwatchable.

The Top 25:

25. Buffalo Stance - Neneh Cherry
24. Love In An Elevator - Aerosmith
23. Love Shack - B-52’s
22. 18 And Life - Skid Row
21. The Living Years - Mike & The Mechanics
20. Mixed Emotions - Rolling Stones
19. Satisfied - Richard Marx
18. When The Children Cry - White Lion
17. Forever Your Girl - Paula Abdul
16. Patience - Guns N Roses
15. We Didn’t Start The Fire - Billy Joel
14. Angel Of Harlem - U2
13. Express Yourself - Madonna
12. Lay Your Hands On Me - Bon Jovi
11. Sowing The Seeds Of Love - Tears For Fears
10. Once Bitten, Twice Shy - Great White
9. Every Little Step - Bobby Brown
8. Rocket - Def Leppard
7. Stand - REM
6. Paradise City - Guns N' Roses
5. I Won’t Back Down - Tom Petty
4. Cult Of Personality - Living Colour
3. She Drives Me Crazy - Fine Young Cannibals
2. Straight Up - Paula Abdul
1. Like A Prayer - Madonna

Though a bit baffling on seeing "Lost In Your Eyes" very low despite being a #1 Top 40 hit for three weeks and "Foolish Beat", another Billboard #1, left out since MTV appeared to favor more edgier pop singers such as Madonna, Paula Abdul, Bobby Brown, hard rock/glam metal bands such as Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, and Guns N' Roses, and teen singers weren't taken seriously in regards of their talent.

 REM "Stand" placed at #7 on the 1989 hints on what the network would favor by the next decade.

The Party "Ton of Bricks" written by Debbie Gibson (1990)

On the liner notes of "Memory Lane Volume 2", Deb stated she didn't like how they recorded it. Would have to agree and also admit that it's the first time I heard the song since I've always been curious about it.

Behind the scenes footage of "Electric Youth" video, co-directed by Debbie Gibson with Jim Yukich and was nominated for a VMA for Best Art Direction. Though in 1999 was ranked among the worst videos on "25 Lame" The network was already mostly unwatchable by that point.
All things Deborah / Deb on "That 80's Show"

Somewhat appropriate to post on April's Fool  ;D

Deb as Janice, the overly perky customer who demands a refund from "That 80's Show"

12:40, Deb sings a bit of "My Favorite Things" from "The Sound of Music"

Personally, Deb very much stole the show with Janice's exaggerated persona, which in retrospect was like a cross between Peg Bundy, Flo the Progressive Spokeswoman, and a bit of Deb herself since she has a theatrical background. It was one of the final episodes of the short lived "That '80's Show", which had some potential but fell flat.

If "That 80's Show" had lasted another season, "Janice" would've been tiresome if became a recurring character since she's very one note. Same with the rest of the characters since most are based on 80's stereotypes (ie Valley Girl, Yuppie,) that have been done much better in other tv shows and movies.

Def Leppard "Love Bites"   8)

Classic power ballad and the scenes very much fit the mood of the song. For some reason, it reminds me a bit of Deb's "Foolish Beat" with the heartbroken women and the end with Deb's video ex and the woman in the Def Leppard video walking away from the camera.
