Audio Song Playlists or Music Video Sets
Pick your poison…
You can once again catch The Whimsical Blasphemy Show at a specific time, instead of just the usual random streams at various unexpected times during the week. (Imagine that…)
Though the time is set and solid, themes will vary, though viewer options will always be available to affect the set in some way.
Its here! I’ve finally taken the time to compile my vast 1980s collection into one list that I think summarizes this decade the best!
…It may not be “One-Stop” if you are only seeking the biggest hits from artists of this decade. This is a meticulously curated collection of music videos and miscellaneous media of the 1980s, as played on The Whimsical Blasphemy Music & Video Show on Twitch during a retro video block.
It is designed to make you feel like you’re taking an offbeat jaunt through 80s music, media & culture.
You may notice some organization in theme/genre if left to play out as it is. I will be changing it up off and on, but the initial framework is built and ready for your immersion! You can expect subtle shifts and new additions here and there.
…with a focus on: new wave, synth wave, goth rock, hair metal, off-beat pop AND the general timeless moodiness, strangeness, and hilarity of the 80s decade.
It also includes: retro commercials, unsettling PSAs, news clips, MTV animations & other random era-relevant irreverent media!
Nahhh, it really won’t at all, but it may explain WHERE WE WERE AT when 10pm came around! 😂
I am one of Gen X’s final latchkey kids & was raised on MTV and music videos, even preferred them over Saturday morning cartoons growing up. (read more about my show and 80s childhood here). I am beyond qualified and eager to deliver this to you, and glad I have an outlet for all this dazzling and horrifying media still inhabiting my headspace.
So keep checking back for updates! …and be sure to tune in to the show on Twitch while I’m doing a retro block (which is fairly often) where you will see what more and be able to request your own to add to the live mix!
When I first began streaming retro music videos on the show, I decided there should also be a set of just new releases as well, hence how this 2021 collection came to be. (It is a tradition I will keep moving forward, I’ve decided, so look for the new 2022 block starting up soon!)
What a fascinating journey it was into the music videos of this past year! Here are some highlights of 2021 as played on The Whimsical Blasphemy Music & Video Show.

Songs deemed unsuitable for society in the 1980’s & other Satanic Panic relevant media.
Re-visit the 1980’s Satanic Panic with various era relevant media clips & see the music videos accused of being too explicit for society- deemed “The Filthy 15 List” by the PMRC, who tried and failed to have them censored
In the mid 80’s, a group of women (consisting mostly of US senator’s wives) attempted to (unsuccessfully) wage war against heavy metal & pop music.
They made a list of 15 songs (“The Filthy 15”) deemed inappropriate for society’s consumption, mostly based upon their own dimwitted interpretations of what they believed the songs to be about, to use as a weapon in their war against freedom of speech in the arts/music.
The Filthy 15 List
1. Prince – Darling Nikki: Sex/masturbation
2 Sheena Easton – Sugar Walls: Sex
3 Judas Priest – Eat Me Alive: Sex/violence
4 Vanity – Strap On ‘Robbie Baby’: Sex
5 Mötley Crüe – Bastard: Violence/language
6 AC/DC – Let Me Put My Love Into You: Sex
7 Twisted Sister – We’re Not Gonna Take It: Violence
8 Madonna – Dress You Up: Sex
9 W.A.S.P. – Animal (Fuck Like a Beast): Sex/language/violence
10 Def Leppard – High ‘n’ Dry (Saturday Night): Drug and alcohol use
11 Mercyful Fate – Into the Coven: Occult
12 Black Sabbath – Trashed: Drug and alcohol use
13 Mary Jane Girls – In My House: Sex
14 Venom – Possessed: Occult
15 Cyndi Lauper – She Bop: Sex/masturbation
Artists of all genres, whether personally attacked or not, came out to defend against these attacks. It was quite a delightful spectacle- and a successful one at that (fortunately)!
Dee Snider of Twisted Sister blows minds at the 1985 PMRC Senate Hearings.

Not your typical 80s music playlist. Moody, electronic & ethereal with infrequent reality checks. New wave, synthwave, alternative & lesser played pop music of the 1980s! Pure GenX nostalgia 📺
Just Frank Zappa smiting and mocking evangelicals and religion. (keep checking back, still a work in process. There’s… a lot of works. 🖤)
Every song on this playlist has the sound of glass breaking in it at some point. Multi-genre but mostly industrial, metal and assorted electronica.
What got me through the first half of the pandemic! 🕯️ Songs about: virus, isolation, lonelines, longing, and solitude. Industrial and retro mostly but multi-genre.
Compiled by a viewer (Jason K Zuehlke) at The Satanic Estate one lovely night. 6 likes 30 songs, 2 hr 11 min
If you tune into the show frequently, this is likely where you will find what I have been playing the most lately.
