51 Weeks: 51 Songs From The Past: Week 13: The Superman Lovers – Starlight

There’s weird, and then there’s really weird! No, I’m not talking about a typical ‘Hugh’ day, but music videos. From multi-award winning videos from 1986 to videos recorded in black and white that make everybody in them look like Hollywood superstars, the music industry never ceases to amaze me with what is produced to promote a song.

If there were an award for most weird video then this one, in my books, would get my vote. It’s one of the strangest I’ve come across, although I love the song.

See what I mean by weird? I mean, what are those things? Potatoes? And did anybody else find the ending of the video quite sad?

Starlight, by The Superman Lovers, also features Mani Hoffman on vocals, and was a huge dancefloor hit on much of planet Earth. Its highest chart position was at number two in France and the U.K, but it also became a top ten hit in five other countries. The song was never released as a single in North America.

Here’s another cool video of the song, which I hope will play for those who the first video would not play for. This one is a must watch for fans of animation science fiction.

And here’s the audio-video version.

Thank you to everyone who left a link to a favourite song in the comments section of last week’s post. And a big thank you to RuthMarie, and Kat who all joined in with publishing a blog post of a favourite song, and to Terri who also linked a post to this feature.
