Music video[edit]

The video is considered very camp and has similar references to other music videos and styles of the 1980s including Bananarama's "Venus", a touch of Michael Jackson towards the end, and even a reference to the Broadway Melody ballet from Singin' in the Rain with Gene Kelly and Cyd Charisse.[citation needed] Parts of the video were shot in black and white.
