Music videos [ edit ]
Jem released two music videos for
They. The UK version, inspired by the opening scene, features Jem Barbarella stripping herself in a spaceship (although she remains covered by strategically placed holograms); actually a boy dreams her as he constructs a model of the same spaceship back on Earth. The US version features Jem walking at a park while being accompanied by a number of children. She then encounters several signs and decides to violate them. Some intercut scenes show her at a roundabout being spun by children.
