D80sV #64: Mike And The Mechanics - Silent Running

Daily 80's Video #64: "Silent Running" is a great not-so-futuristic call to revolution against unknown oppressors. It's in the vein of some of Rush's similar futuristic tales. Going along with the general fear during the 80's of World War III always breaking out, a la Red Dawn. "Silent Running" features one of the most prolific and soulful singers around, Paul Carrack, who also sang hits for Ace in the 70's and Squeeze's biggest hit ever "Tempted". Enjoy Paul Carrack's voice, the movie quality video, and the general sound created by Mike Rutherford's (of Genesis fame) side project, the Mechanics. Get some D80sV merch. Or maybe curl up with a good ebook. Go to next D80sV.
