"One Thing Leads to Another" is a song by new wave rock band The Fixx, from their album Reach the Beach. "One Thing Leads to Another" is the group's most successful single. Entering the chart at #65 on August 27, 1983, it reached #4 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in November 1983.[1] It hit #2 on the U.S. Mainstream Rock Tracks chart[2] and went to #1 in Canada.[citation needed] Vocalist Cy Curnin has described the song as an indictment of dishonest politicians.[3]

Music video[edit]

The video begins at a science lab where Adam Woods is looking into a microscope observing a new dimension (the wrist shackle in the video on the wall is seen on the cover of Reach the Beach). It shows a dimension in a black tunnel with lights on top where Cy Curnin is dancing in a classy navy blue double-breasted suit and open-necked white shirt. He is then in a bright tube, wearing a gray sleeveless shirt with his arms and shoulders exposed. Then, in a blue tunnel, he is running with a dog. It ends with the tunnel in a 3-dimensional angle to see throughout the tube with the band members singing the rest of the song.
