More than the sum of its parts, this is one of my all-time-favorite videos. I love the stuffing out of The Damned:



Alone Again Or is a song I like in and of itself, but the spaghetti-Western-cum-trailer park effect of the video sends me into transports of rapture. I love the elongated forms who people this video, and there's something immaculately delicious about the senorita twirling as red dust boils up around her white shoes, an 18 wheeler streaking past, crop duster overhead and the occasional hog charging through the tableaux. The desolate, desperate beauty of the video perfectly underscores the melancholy of the song.

Great concept, beautifully filmed. I hope you'll like it too.

For some reason I paid little attention to it first time around can't think why? I watched to the end I liked it.

It's like Herb Alpert had a bastard kid with Duran Duran.
