Okay, not having a dig at Heston (well, not *just* having a dig at Heston), but for a big band and single, this is a pure garbage video that is, I suppose, representative of the song and era.
Here’s the reverse, how much effort went into this video compared to the awful song!
Hello,

I think the make-up + hair gel budget is more than my annual salary.
Exactly!!!

Yeah but if you tried harder and earned a bit more you might look a bit more dandy. ;)

Hello,

I'm not sure if dandy suits me - or if I'm even dandy-able!

My nomination...

Kajagoogoo's drummer is kind of a hunk.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Okay, partly I hate the song, but I really can't stand the art school seriousness of the video. It reeks of trying way too hard to shove all kinds of symbolism and moody artist crap in there.

I mean, talk about your perfect setups. Your softballs, if you will.

Hello,

All these make me think - "I'll listen to a great song and probably watch (last through) a crap video because it's a great song, but will I watch a great video and listen (last through) the crap song attached?". Maybe a thread should ask about (though not poll) great songs with crap videos and crap songs with great videos? I'll admit my priority is on the song.

I don't think a good video ever persuaded me on a dodgy song, but it's possible a shitty video prejudiced me against an otherwise decent tune. No examples come to mind, but that's my instinct.

Oh Mimi that's a little harsh. How about this from '83.
