Since Halloween is on its way, what better way to celebrate than with this spooky video by Spandau Ballet? Candelabras, fog and a dungeon-like setting are highlights, as are the well-dressed members of the band, who appear to have wandered from the runway show for the Burberry fall/winter collection. A gorgeous vision in plaid, New Romantic blouses and wool sweaters! And an amazing song that has been wrongfully buried under Spandau Ballet’s portfolio of soul/pop tracks. “To Cut a Long Story Short” is jolty synthpop at its best!
Other must-sees include an odd partner dance by two women dressed in ’80s formal wear of the goth variety, as well as highly dramatic mannerisms by every member of Spandau Ballet as they belt out “To Cut a Long Story Short.” Absolutely brilliant! In keeping with the song’s title, I won’t make this a long, drawn-out blog post. But I will say that this track comes from the band’s first album, Journeys to Glory. Check out their early work, folks. It’s well worth it, even if all you know is that this much is “True.” Happy Friday!
