80s Music Video of the Week: Hello

Hello by Lionel Richie is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. It's poignant and moving and can be appreciated by anybody who's ever been in love with somebody who didn't love them back. So how did they screw it up so bad by pairing it with one of the weirdest and creepiest videos of all time?

Still... great song:

heh. I've never seen this. I guess stalking a blind chick might seem a little creepy.

That said, this really is a beautiful song.

This song is beyond beautiful. It's heartbreaking. I am a Lionel Richie fan through and through, and I say that without any irony at all.

And thanks for the link, Tanya. That was hilarious. Do you know those guys?

Hello and Say You, Say Me are my favorite Lionel Ritchie songs. Now this video is insanely creepy. I remember when I was young thinking that it was about a teacher that wanted to date a student, I never even realized that the girl was blind! Now it seems so rude to say to her "Hello, is it me you're LOOKING for". She can't even look.

I wonder what happens to Tony Billy Boy.
