This is one of the first music videos I remember watching as a kid - before we could choose what music we wanted to hear on-demand 24x7, social media, file sharing, or every other source available to promote artists or play music. The only time we could hear music was through the radio, tv shows, or records and tapes we had access to. You couldn't choose the playlist unless you or your friends had the physical recording. This one in particular stuck with me since childhood. "Who is this guy? He has a purple suit, the motorcycle, the song is dark and sad but still makes you want to dance!" There were a few others as well, and they all still influence me today.
