Just try to get this song out of your head, I dare you.

There's no particular reason why I like this song. It's from the '80s, and it's cheesy. The video looks like an Off-Off-Broadway production of Cats, as viewed through the lens of the early-'90s Super Nintendo game Street Fighter II* (i.e., the second-best video game in the history of the world, after River Raid for the Atari 2600). I'm not sure how it got stuck in my head a few days ago, either.

But hey, here we are.



Enjoy Scandal (featuring Patty Smyth (no, not Patti Smith)) and their song "The Warrior", direct from 1984 (the year (not the novel (or the movie based on the novel))) to you.

Some music videos are "performance videos," which attempt to show the band "playing" the song in a semi-realistic kind of way.

Some music videos are basically mini-movies, where the song is the soundtrack and there's no attempt to make a band (or a singer) appear connected to the action on the screen.

This, unfortunately, has a foot in both worlds, which makes it all that much more ridiculous.
