Every now and then, I check the logs to see what search terms drive web surfers to visit FTABlog. My most recent check revealed that months after our last installment, some people still want to see more 80s music videos. Well alrighty then.
Today I present a special treat. Shock the Monkey is the enigmatic hit that helped Peter Gabriel break out in the US, and this is the Pop-Up Video version. For the youngsters out there, Pop-Up Video was a VH1 show in the 1990s. In every episode, PUV provided behind the scenes info and often sophomoric commentary about several music videos. If you want more examples, there are dozens more at producer Spin the Bottle’s Livestream site. Enjoy!
