Little known fact: even though MTV played their videos a lot - including the one we're featuring today - Missing Persons never had a Top 40 hit in the US. This song made it to #42 on the Billboard Hot 100, but wasn't a big hit.
And yet, their songs and videos endure. Everyone remembers Dale Bozzio's fishbowl bra. But this keyboard/drum driven sound, complemented with Dale's quirky, emotive vocal, draws me in every time, more so than her boobs under clear acrylic.
They're back together, too. And Dale - who co-wrote the song - calls it one of her favorites. Mine, too, Dale. Mine, too.
