Even though this is one of my favorite songs of the 80s (and nearly all time), before tonight I had never seen the official music video. It’s kind of cool to see music videos from back in the day when they were low budget.
I remember the first time I heard this song. I was riding in the back of my friend Scott’s Buick Century on Interstate 81 heading home from the movies in Watertown, N.Y. I remember asking him to turn up the radio because it sounded like such a good son.
The girls look a little cranky in this video but it’s fun nonetheless.
Here’s “Automatic” by The Pointer Sisters.
By the way, it’s Anita on the left, Ruth singing leads and June on the right.
