Classic vintage video.
White Lion- "Wait" (1987)

There's way too many videos from pop-hair-metal bands from which to choose. And trust me, this won't be the first one on this blog. The criminally forgotten White Lion makes the cut because of fancy guitar solos (most notably in the cover of "Radar Love"), meaningful songs that weren't about partying, and hitting the top of MTV's top 20 video countdown. Despite those things, and because the 1989 follow-up came just before the grunge revolution, the band wasn't as long-lasting or popular as Def Leppard, Bon Jovi or Poison. "Wait" was White Lion's first hit single, and it's a stellar one. It's about wanting another chance. No...NEEDING. and needing is a responsibility.
