Help Me Remember!

Best friends with whoever can tell me the artist and/or name of this song I've been trying to figure out for years.

I don't even know the tune, all I remember was that it had a good beat and I liked it. Maybe circa late 1990s? All I remember was that the video clip had three European friends, two guys and a girl, some scenes in a bowling alley, and then it ends with them all standing atop a cliff and looking out into the world?

FYI, this is for a friend. But bonus if the video exists on this great world wide web.

I was about to say Alphaville, "Forever Young," as I was 100% certain the video involved a car full of carefree German youths driving along the cliffs of a seaside. And the song was re-released in the 90's.

But apparently, I "remember" that either from a movie or made it up, as a double-check on the internets reveal that the actual "Forever Young" video involves some dusty old people in period attire in a crumbling church... and also some sweet pegged pants and New Wave hair on the overwrought lead singer and synth keyboard guy. So there's one it's definitely not.

the details are slightly different, but in the Smashing Pumpkins 1979 video there is a bunch of people (the band) driving around in a car in California (not Europe). There is a scene where they stand at the end of a cliff, as well as a scene where they bowl in a convenience store using food.

Here's some youtube action if you want to check it out.
