Friday Morning Videos: "New Moon on Monday"

Okay, so I'm thinking: first day of May. Springtime, festivals, paganism, fertility rites, new beginnings, dancing by the light of the moon. But of course, you've also got May 1: May Day, International Workers' Day, solidarity, revolution, uprising, taking on the powers that be. So I have to ask myself: is there some song that plausibly puts all this together, preferably with the help of synthesizers?

Well, it's not a perfect match, but Duran Duran comes pretty close. Too bad today is a Friday.
