Weekly Abysmal Video 10/12/09

saga
This Canuck band made a brief splash in the US here in 1981 – 1982 with the Rupert Hine produced album Worlds Apart, and this week’s WAV is one of the first videos ever to be featured on MTV when it was a brand new video music channel.

I remember a radio station in Lafayette, LA back in the early 80′s called KSMB-FM. For about 2 years it might have been my favorite radio station ever. Whenever I was home sick from school, I had that station playing all day and in any given hour you’d hear KISS, Cindy Lauper, Ozzy Osbourne, Stevie Nicks, Police, Accept, Michael Jackson (Thriller was brand new), Yes, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith…I’ve never heard another station like it. It was all over the place and somehow it worked. That is where I first heard this song, and oddly enough I never saw the video on MTV myself back in the day.

Great song…And don’t it look soooooooooo 80′s?! And what’s up with singer Michael Sadler’s clothes. Oh yeah…it was the 80′s!
