ABC

One of the best bands of the 80s, ABC, with The Look of Love.

This vid is quintessentially of the best that came out of the ’80s: A style contrary to the band’s personality, costumes inspired by Mary Poppins, kitsch and corn. It was influenced by old Brit music hall, the chalk pavement sequence in Mary Poppins, and all things vaudeville, complete with the band’s four members outfitted in vertical-striped suits and straw hats.

Only the Brits can carry off all this revelling in silliness without compromising the style and class of their Top 10 hit in 1982.
