Talk Talk - It's My Life

Ready for another 80's classic? Talk Talk's "It's My Life", off their similarily titled 1984 album, is an old favourite of mine, and that video? Wow, it's good! Directed by Tim Pope, who's also worked a lot with The Cure and The The, it shows Mark Hollis wandering around in a zoo, interspersed with Richard Attenborough style shots of animals in the wild. The song is a pop masterpiece, the result of genius songwriting and a totally brilliant arrangement, epic and in many ways big, but at the same time mysteriously down to earth. Just listen to the instrumental bridge that starts at about 2:32. There is absolutely nothing wrong with "It's My Life".

Watch and listen
