Saturday morning tunes: This is the new stuff!

Jeez. Has it really been 25 years?

Here's the 1986 video that helped keep Peter Gabriel's "Sledgehammer" on the charts for a good long while. In fact, MTV has named it the #1 animated video of all time (and ranked it #4 on its list of the 100 greatest music videos.) Some of the stop-motion animation was contributed by Aardman Animations, whence came the 2006 Oscar-winning "Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit" (and those vaguely creepy talking cars in the Chevron commercials).

But the video's only great because the song's already great. I defy you to get this one out of your head for the rest of the morning. But then, why would you even try? Kick the habit. Shed your skin.

If you're reading this in FB Notes, you'll need to click View Original Post to see the video.
