    I don't watch a lot of videos but a friend shared this one and I find it strangely moving. If you didn't "grow up" with this song, it probably won't affect you the same way. It came out in 82, so I was out of school but I hadn't hit 30 yet.
    I'm sharing it on this site because even though it's lip-synch and a video, many of the shots strike me as being set up like stills. You'll see if you watch it.
    AND if you have ANY interest in knotting, watch the closing credits - well, the guy next to the closing credits. He's working the slack out of a monkey's fist knot and boy, is he good!

    Requesite photo ID to follow - keep that bouncer away for a few more minutes!

    Oh wow, I loved that. The guys looked like they had so much fun, the video was well done, and its still a favourite of mine, even though its so old (in fact I made it into a ringtone on my phone, I use it for alarms :))
