On this date in 1985, the video for “A View to a Kill” aired on American Bandstand. This is a particularly fitting day in history as just this week, the band’s social media reminded all of us that on this day, the song reached number one in the US.
I remember this day. I remember Live Aid that also took place on this day. I was helping my family who was in the process of moving and was desperate to get back home to see it. I loved the song and even asked the new neighbor kids if they loved it as much as I did! I knew that it would go to number one and totally believed that it deserved it! As for the video, I, too, thought it was so clever then with the storyline and bit of dialogue. Of course, the JT shots didn’t hurt!
What did you think of the song and the video in 1985??
