Music videos[edit]

  • "Dun Ringill"
A video inspired by the Stormwatch album cover, filmed at a beach near Dover.
  • "Sweet Dream"
In this a vampire-themed homage to horror movies, Aqualung is pursued by a vampire and — like the prisoner — giant pink balloons. Meanwhile, a ballerina pirouettes, a giant tarantula emits death rays, and an evil projectionist starts his movie. Luckily, a Nun supplies the right equipment to defeat the vampire.
  • "Too Old To Rock 'n' Roll"
The elderly band is in a giant pinball machine, drinking their tea like the Alice in Wonderland tea party.
  • "Fylingdale Flyer"
The band is in an air traffic control tower, when they see some impending disaster. The cover of A is taken from this video. RAF Fylingdales (note the 's') is the site of a Ballistic Missile Early Warning System radar situated in the North York Moors National Park, which explains the lyric to the song.
