...my favorite Laurie Anderson song, O Superman, was nominated for best 80's video on Sullivan's site. Very performance arty and minimalist, so maybe not everyone's cup of tea. But the song is strangely tender and moving. It was written at a time when answering machines were quite new and strange. The line "smoking, or non-smoking?" sounds so dated now. But I think the song holds up well.
