Oh hey, where the fuck has this Classic been hiding my whole life?!??

Asrestlessasweare just posted the video, which I urge you not to miss, particularly for Wyman’s pricelessly sheepish smirk when he sings we could go on the hovercraft/across the water/they’ll think I’m your dad/and you’re my daughter.

Amazing.

While Sparks’ No. 1 in Heaven was totally Moroder-driven, on 1980’s Terminal Jive Moroder stepped back a bit and Harold Faltermeyer was clearly in charge. You can hear it too: No. 1 is disco and Terminal Jive is a new wave affair.

Anyway, this is a great jam, but it’s only my second favorite about the pleasures of Humberthumbertism. As usual, Ray Davies defeats all comers.
