Video of the Week: Hoodoo Gurus - I Want You Back ( 1984)


In which Dave Faulkner is talked into wearing blue eye shadow and primping his hair like Robert Smith of The Cure. ("Nobody will even notice Dave. They'll all be looking at the singing dinosaurs.") Best power pop song of the 80's.

The Gurus are big faves of the kids, mine included. And not just because of this video --which does look like something out of an episode of Yo Gabba Gabba! The Gurus even had a video ( for "Another World"  from Magnum Cum Louder) play in heavy rotation at Toys R Us stores in 1989.

The Gurus have their own website. (Who doesn't?)
