'80s Flashback FUV Boat: Every Breath You Take

by Darren DeVivo

The haunting black and white cinematography of this video stamped an indelible mark on the 1980s. It punctuated this powerful song that, on the surface, sounds like a broken hearted song of longing, but underneath lies the words of an obsessed, sinister person, jealously seeking control of a lost love. The video was produced by Kevin Godley and Lol Creme, formerly of 10CC. I promise to add color and a funky groove on our '80s-themed “FUV Boat” on September 7.
