What about this film clip of Dreaming' by Cliff Richard? Vevo are usually quite 'official'.
Love your list Jason. Here's another Culture Club one ...
Love Is Love - Culture Club
Gee seeing all these lists of songs and artists makes you realise even with Rage extensive music video clip library just how many music clips still could yet be played even now to this day.
The retro nerdliness levels in this thread are extreme (or maybe I should say "off the charts") and I am here for it!
It's a pity there isn't someone with this kind of dedication involved in programming Rage.
One I forgot from 1986:
Suzanne Vega 'Left of Center' - has aired in 2000 and 2012, but was before digital TV in 2000, and plastered with the ABC1 watermark in 2012. It's not on the PAL version of her DVD.
I second Jason's suggestions for Kim Carnes' 'Voyeur' and Toto Coelo's 'Milk From the Coconut' (it's Toto, not To To).
As much as I'd love to see O'Chi Brown's '100% Pure Pain' on rage, it was not released as a single in Australia - at least, it does not appear in any of the Kent Music Report lists of new releases in 1986 (only 'Whenever You Need Somebody' and 'Rock Your Baby' do) - so rage probably can't air it (unless they wish to obtain a copy of the video).
Similarly, Neneh Chery's 'Inna City Mama' was not released as a single in Australia. An Australian-pressed copy is listed on discogs, but this is presumably for its New Zealand distribution. Yes, they got 'Inna City Mamma' as the 4th 'Raw Like Sushi' single, whereas we got 'Heart'.
Neither Stacey Q's 'I Love You' nor Princess's 'Tell Me Tomorrow' were released as singles locally, either.
I read or seen it maybe on Twitter that Rage are playing a Countdown show this Saturday too. Can anyone confirm or deny? Let’s hope so anyway. Although like many others on here I’m not fussed on Recovery or 10.30 Slot being replayed this soon as part of Rage Retro Month. I know there are a few that still want to see this era in music played too so I guess Rage are just trying to satisfy each demographic at the end of the day. I’m still pretty satisfied with the first 3 weeks so far for this year and like Jason or anybody else while it is sad there is always next January to look forward to. Years seem to go much quicker these days or probably it is me just getting older. 🤔😄🙏
I too have some more Rage music video clips that to my knowledge have never aired on Rage so far...
Any Day Of The Week - The Crocodiles (1979)
Tears - The Crocodiles (1980)
Telephone Lover - The Crocodiles (1980)
Cut The Talking - The Dugites (1983)
Juno And Me (1984)
Italian Boys - Electric Pandas (1985)
Dreams From Yesterday - The Numbers (1982)
Black And Blue - Chantoozies (2014)
Some great choices there, obviously a Cliff Richard fan - so am I!!
So who here is going to upload the Countdown video with Lynda Nutter intro to Youtube...I'm over the Video Hits copy! :grinning:
'Juno and Me' video that is.
Someone already has
Hot Summer Nights - Night (1979)
Suddenly - Cliff Richard & Olivia Newton-John (1980)
You've Lost That Loving Feeling - Long John Baldry & Kathi McDonald (1979) (1980 in Australia)
@Scott - some of those clips you’ve requested in your first post have been shown on rage in the digital era:
Losing You - Sharon O’Neill - as part of a Rock Arena replay
Danger - Sharon O’Neill - as part of a Countdown replay
Power - Sharon O’Neill - as part of an Antenna replay
Hummingbird - Eurogliders
Human On The Inside - Divinyls
Don’t Wanna Do This - Divinyls
I Know There’s Something Going On - Frida
That’s just the ones I know about without doing a search.
@Scott - clips from your second post that have been shown:
Baby It’s You - Promises (this has been shown quite a few times)
Idiot Grin - Do Re Mi - as part of a Rock Arena replay
I’m not aware of the clips from your third and fourth posts being shown but if I don’t follow a particular artist then I haven’t been on the lookout for their clips.
@Jason - Eurythmics “The Walk” (video clip with Annie in Black wig) has a very interesting history. Basically the clip is lost and there is no known high quality copy surviving anywhere in the world. If you go to my YouTube channel you’ll see my digital restoration of the last known copy which was from an extremely degraded Umatic tape copy kept by the director, Marek Budzynski.
Full story in the YouTube description of this video.
Very happy that one of my requests was on Rage VAULT last night ...
Stumbling' In - Suzi Quatro & Chris Norman
Pleasantly surprised about the different film clip too. Not the one I've seen before. Thank you, Rage. :slightly_smiling_face:
Yes to Charlene, Captain & Tennille and Sheena.
In a similar vein, I'd like 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling' by Long John Baldry & Kathi MacDonald, which I only have from Video Hits.
