The Future Liberals Want

THIS is the future that liberals want: Limahl singing “The Never Ending Story” in front of a rainbow painting in 1984. I had no idea this was what the singers of this song looked like. I love them, and it, even more now.

They are a good looking pair, for true. I like how kind-hearted and open their facial expressions are, and how present, while simultaneously acknowledging the delight of being out on the edge. A sweet playfulness with culture. Admirable.

I guess that’s Mandy Newton (from sometimes Kajagoogoo) in the video instead of studio vocalist Beth Anderson (who lived in America rather then the UK, where “Top of the Pops” is). So that is NOT the face behind the voice I’ve always heard. But I love her.
