After attending one of Central Cinema's monthly 1980s music-video sing-alongs, I was so inspired by the swooshing spectacle of fashion wonderments, I combed the internet's vast collection of vintage music-video gems and captured the most appetizing looks, culling interview guidance from superstar Jason Miller (of JamWasMovin' Productions, who hosts, curates, and generally keeps the sing-alongs fun as all heck). Please enjoy these top 10 hit fashion moments, from Madonna's rhinestones to Paul Stanley's brittle perm, and remember: More is more.

Scandal's "The Warrior" occurs in a futuristic sci-fi dystopia outfitted with dry ice, industrialness, and flesh-colored leotards. In her fiercest style moment, frontwoman Patty Smyth wears kimono sleeves inlaid with red and yellow sashes, which recall bike handlebar streamers, which recall the potent joy of freedom. Also, she has eye shadow on her chin and her hair is upside down.

Worth noting: The weirdly intense lyric "Your eyes touch me physically."
