Nik Kershaw’s surprisingly sci-fi video from 1984 combines a 40s/50s retro feel with a glowing chroma key space suit. Add a humanoid alien with a hairdo that rivals Val Kilmer’s in Real Genius, plus visual and narrative elements that conjure memories of spacemen-themed flicks like 1976’s The Man Who Fell to Earth and 1984’s Starman, and you have this five- minute celebration of science and music.
NOTE: THE FIRST SECONDS OF THE VIDEO HAVE LITTLE SOUND, BUT THE MUSIC WILL KICK IN, SO STAY WITH IT…
“Wouldn’t It Be Good” is a great “worst day ever” anthem, which you hopefully won’t need for that purpose today since the weekend is around the corner!
Enjoy, and Happy Friday:
