How to do a mimed performance and make it exciting even though it's obviously lip-synched. I wish the Jam had taken note and not left us with a bunch of derisory Top of the Pops performances.

I remember that from back when I was young. ;)

Ha I was referring to the song not the TV show Rock Planet. Although I do have that clip on a bootleg compilation somewhere.

True but wasn't it also the case with TOTP that a particularly bad mime, or even deliberately abysmal performance, could garner more attention than a tight, professional delivery? I don't mean Weller or the Jam particularly, just in general.

I've never seen this version of the video (the one I remember had something to do with a guy jumping off a rooftop and turning into a bird). This is spectacularly awkward looking.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

Hello,

When I watched this, all I could imagine was some assistant producer standing next to the camera moving and telling the lead singer (Jon Anderson?) keep moving - dance like this.... I quit after awhile - did things get better? I can't believe I interrupted the Talking Heads for this.

Not just a great song but a nice nod to Joe in the lyrics at 2:42. You see Joe in the audience at the end looking quite appreciative...

Love that. Joe was in absolutely flying form that night, rousing all the other bands to join in on I Fought The Law. Stirring stuff.

This was 5 days after I met Joe for the one and only time. So sad that both him and Warren would be gone so soon after.

I regret never meeting Joe when I had the chance 😞

Whoever said never meet your heroes was a fool.
