VIDEO O' THE WEEK: "WISHFUL THINKING"

Some may say that this video is nothing special. And I may agree. BUT, for years, I wanted to see this video from start to finish. My best friend from adolescence (musician, Kim Simpson) and I used to compile video tapes of our favorite videos, taken from MTV, Night Traxx, Night Flight (on USA Network), among other sources. Kim had a thirty second snippit of "WISHFUL THINKING", by CHINA CRISIS, and I would be deeply into the song, when the next video would quickly interrupt.

I even attempted to request the song on CLASSIC VH-1, a few years ago, on their "all request" program, but never heard back from the show. So, in disappointment, I gave up my quest to see the entire video of one of my favorite songs. Until YOUTUBE.COM came along. Thanks to them, not only have I gotten to enjoy the entire song, but you get to, as well...

"WISHFUL THINKING" by CHINA CRISIS
Taken from the album, "WORKING WITH FIRE AND STEEL: POSSIBLE POP SONGS, VOLUME TWO", my favorite album of all time.




But after watching, I ask one question...
Didn't that runner learn anything from "An American Werewolf in London"?
"Beware the moon.... KEEP OFF THE MOORS!!"
