We're wrapping up Music Week with a look at a song that has one of the most memorable videos ever -- 1988's "Simply Irresistible" by Robert Palmer.
Nearly everybody's at least aware of it, regardless of whether or not they had MTV. A follow-up to his similarly themed video (and no less iconic) "Addicted to Love," "Simply Irresistible" saw the uber-smooth Palmer crooning it up with a bevvy of nonchalant models standing around in the background. Red lips! Undulating beauties in swimsuits! Words like "inscrutable" and "irrefutable"! Video aside, what I really liked about it was the sweet "whip-schwiiing!" sounds.
I can think of a few songs with equally iconic videos -- ones that really changed the way videos were perceived: "Thriller," of course. "Money For Nothing." "Sledgehammer."
How about you? Were you a Palmer fan? And what's your all-time most innovative music video from the '80s?
