Friday Night Videos

Greetings from Jamaica! Or Grand Cayman! Or somewhere else out in the Gulf of Mexico! I don't really know where I am right now, but I'm probably having a better time than you right at this minute. There's a generous amount of rum involved, I can assure you, so today's Friday Night Video has a bit of tropical flair, Blondie's "The Tide Is High." It's an entertaining song, breaking the band out of its comfort zone, but honestly, has there ever been a more wretched music video? I wonder how much of that wretchedness has to do with Debbie Harry's vacant, glassy-eyed stare? She may well have taken herself a trip to Jamaica, but odds are she didn't restrict her intake to rum.

Previously on Friday Night Videos... Syd Barrett.
