After whittling through a few candidates tonight, I present your winner.
I watched my finalists in a row and this one ended up winning because of production value alone. I’m actually somewhat amazed at the production that went into this video for 1983. I don’t know artists in 2008 who would put this much effort into producing a music video. I mean, a lighted floor, dancers, weird lighting effects.
Sure, it looks like something the local summer stock theater group put together with the local high school’s AV Club, but still … I do enjoy this video a good bit. And I’m willing to bet some of you haven’t even THOUGHT of this song or video in years.
