February may be the month of love, but it’s not champagne and roses for everyone. Today we take a few minutes to celebrate drama, heartache and a bit of obsession with this gorgeous music video from ABC. “The Night You Murdered Love” comes from the group’s 1987 album Alphabet City. To describe the plot of today’s piece, I defer to this concise Wikipedia one-liner: “The music video shows a homicidal fashion model carrying a slingshot and a skateboard stalking the band across the city of Paris.” Interested?
There’s something enticing about ABC’s vixen- and glamour-filled videos. Fashion, beauty and dysfunction blend in a perfect haze of polished storytelling. And then there are the amazing vocals. Enjoy this jewel from the decade of decadence… And Happy Friday!
