Friday Morning Videos: "The Tide is High"

If the Go-Gos from last week had stayed punk rather than turned pop, and if they'd left California and went to New York, they might have sounded like this:

Buy some low-rent Star Wars-era costumes from a neighborhood shop, hire some extras for $20, manage to stay off the drugs for an afternoon of wandering around shooting footage, and hey, you've got a video.

First, I think the evidence that anyone involved in this stayed off drugs during the making is extremely slim. If anything, the video suggests otherwise. Secondly, once again this reminds me what a horrible time the 80's were. Awful. Finally, while the video is clearly pretty sucky and makes no sense, I have to admit that more than the flashy and smooth but makes no sense videos of today. That probably just shows I'm old.
