The Friday OT: Joan Armatrading; Drop the pilot

The bizarre part of this video is that it dates from 1983, two years before Woody Allen's Purple Rose of Cairo (you'll see what I mean). The cringeworthiness of this video is the look chosen by Joan's backing group, which is approximately Mullet-Perm Blue Steel. Sadly, it was cool at the time....oh those 80s....

The wonderfulness of this video is Joan, her exceptional voice and a song that's a four or five cuts above yer average pop. Quality abounds and fun vid too.
