Amazing song -Terrible video

The song Out in the fields by Gary Moore and Phil Lynott (RIP), formally of Thin Lizzy, is a masterpiece of 80's rock. The guitar solo by Gary Moore is short yet widely regarded as one of the best of the genre as far as tone, speed and general awesomeness. Gary Moore kinda looks like a retarded Mick Jagger in this picture.

Then, there is the video. Holy hell what were they thinking. Little drummer boy outfits with random kids throwing glass jars of paint at a brick wall? It looks like the two of them just got off a 3 week heroin binge in the arctic where they were attacked by the Yeti. The hair is simply amazing. I've always hated videos shot on location... like a beach. Are you plugging in your guitar amp into a sea shell? It's like they paid a hobo $2 and a sandwich to film this.

Here is the video, enjoy.

Wow, I've never seen this. Interesting to say the least. The 80's were some different times. Have you ever seen the Billy Squier "Rock Me Tonight" video? That's a video masterpiece.

Yeah I think you showed me that once. Isn't he wearing some crazy spandex or something?

It's been a while since I've seen it, but yeah I think so, along with some pink Flashdance looking sweatshirt that's cut off over one shoulder. There's a particularly magical moment where he rips it off, and they do the classic 80's triple take instant replay of it.

Haha wow, I'll have to check that out today.

I lost my cell phone (again) so if you texted me or anything lately I probably haven't seen it.
