Addicted to Love

In my post of January 5, 2014, I referenced some of the biggest music videos (which I happen to like).  One I neglected to mention was the biggy of Robert Palmer (1949-2003).   In 1986, Robert Palmer – a Brit from West Yorkshire – recorded the top-of-the-charts “Addicted to Love.”  The corresponding music video was classic and catapulted Palmer into the national attention.  In 1987, Palmer won the Grammy for best male vocalist for “Addicted to Love.”    This music video can be seen at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XcATvu5f9vE

The back up musicians – all women who are identically-clad and heavily made up – are thought to mimic or mock the painting style of artist Patrick Nagel.  Robert Palmer – a heavy smoker – sadly died of a heart attack in Paris at the age of 54.  But the women are still around.  The ladies were interviewed by Yahoo at the 2014 Grammys.  Interesting to see then – and now.    Check out https://uk.screen.yahoo.com/robert-palmer-girls-today-173805406.html

    That was indeed interesting. I’m going to propose that ditty to our group of elderly rockers. You should visit the Yorkshire Dales while you still know your own name. S.
