My friend Jessica will love (too strong a word, maybe??) me for pointing out that on today’s date in 1984, parts of The Reflex were filmed.
I won’t lie. I LIKE the video for The Reflex. I always imagined what I might have been like in that audience. (I’d have lost my teenage mind, I’m sure) I wonder what it was like to be in the arena, knowing that if you were anywhere near the front – you’d be seen in a DD video for all eternity. I can certainly think of worse things! And then there’s John Taylor, all up on stage and cute in his red/silver/white jacket/shirt/I-really-don’t-know-what-to-call-it up there with his bleached bangs and cheekbones, alongside Simon and Andy, with Nick and Roger towards the back but still ever-present. I still like the video. How could I not?
