Best Music Video Ever Of The Week: Black Planet

June 28, 2009

More than 20 years since I first saw it, I continue to enjoy this Sisters of Mercy video for five reasons:

  1. That’s the Monkees’ car.
  2. George Barris took part in the making of this video. George Barris!
  3. I love the Sisters, man.
  4. Andrew Eldritch can’t actually drive, so all the scenes of him driving are either (a) shot with the car on a flatbed or (b) shot with a stand-in wearing a Cher wig and a cowboy hat.
  5. Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams sleep through the whole thing. They would depart soon after to form The Mission. And while I love the Sisters, I bow down to The Mission.

Sabotage was going to be the Best Music Video Ever Of The Week, but I couldn’t make up my mind, so I just put it out there as a Star Trek thing.
