Looking for Song from 80s Music Video
January 12, 2009 8:30 AM   Subscribe

I am trying to remember the name/artist of an 80s music video. In it, the guy wore a glowing (bluescreen/transparent) suit and stumbled across the nighttime countryside while singing mournfully and freaking people out. It was kind of creepy, at the end he dissipates in a glow like an alien/angel while the scowling townsfolk converge on him. British artist, possibly Ned or Nick something. Anyone able to help me find this?

I'm at work so can't watch the video to confirm the ending but it sounds very much like Wouldnt It Be Good by Nik Kershaw.

Beaten like a red headed stepchild, but as Ness says, Nick Kershaw.

Oh man, I loved that song. I wore out the cassette. And as Ness says, it's Nik without the C.

Response by poster: THANK you, I just couldn't get the name out of brain storage. Off I go.

Yup - Nik Kershaw's "Wouldn't It Be Good."

Oh, no, no, no, don't watch that video!
I did this a few years ago and had a vicious earworm that lasted for almost a week. BEWARE! BEWARE!

Here's a suggested earworm cure.

OT This RadioLab podcast about earworms is interesting, too
