A couple of bands.
Godley & Creme's 'Wedding Bells' was one of those songs which was all over the radio at the start of the '80s. It's one of those songs I must admit to liking quite a lot. It's not one of my absolute favourites, but it's good.
"We're the Sweeney son, and we haven't had any dinner!"
I remember Wedding Bells and and Under Your Thumb though. Also Cry, which only made it to number 19, yet I have seen the video so many times then and since.
Godley and Creme also directed the infamous Girls on Film video for Duran Duran. The TV version is a censored edit. I was always disappointed by it because the lyrics are so evocative - "See them walking hand in hand across the bridge at midnight..." A wasted opportunity.
He was complaining that everything became 'let's look what the next Frankie video's going to be like' instead of 'let's hear what the new Frankie song is like', which is symptomatic of the 80s really. I remember he also dismissed the Power of Love video as a 'moving Christmas card' and that Christmas was not what the song was intended to be about at all - and yet it turns up on all the Christmas compilations.
They did Herbie Hancock's Rockit too which is not so bad:

Love the Walkers. Scott Walker has a magnificent voice. Along with Allan Clarke from the Hollies, Gene Pitney and Chris Farlowe, one of THE voices of the 1960s.
