Friday Morning Videos: "When Smokey Sings"

ABC was usually pegged as a New Wave band, and they had a few big hits as such, but they were too orchestral, and too willing to really swing or rock (for a while, Roxy Music's rhythm section provided their percussion), to entirely fit into the synthpop genre. Here's a little number they tried later on, under the influence of the Motown sound.

Pretty awesome, I say.

I have to admit that, while I find most things from the 80's terrible, including nearly all clothes worn by men, I have a weak spot for the new wave women's look still.
