I want to say that this music video is too ridiculous, garish, and cheesy to be appropriate, but then I remembered what song I'm writing about. This song is ridiculous, garish, and cheesy, which is a big part of why my ears immediately perked up.
This is a modern song, and the first 14 seconds of it sound like they were legitimately transported forward in time from the late 70's slash early 80's. I really mean this, too, in the sense that there's a lot of bands that are clearly influenced by the 80's, and there's a lot of songs that sound like they're clearly stabbing toward sounding like an 80's song but just don't make it quite there. This song, on the other hand, plants a solid landing. This is an 80's track that has been influenced by modern production values, not the other way around.
Even the songwriting is appropriately groan-inducing, like the entire bridge which sounds like a rejected verse from Labyrinth:
oh honey now
don't you come crying to me
we're all gonna die here
but life will go on
down in the ocean of dreams
The rest of this Sylver Tongue EP is not very good, but this song is basically absolutely perfect as far as I'm concerned.
