Music video[edit]

The music video for Turn on Me features images of an old woman suntanning, a man operating a crane, a one-eyed dog in the woman's garden, a man in a speedo fishing leaves out of a pool, a piano, a bee, and some Jell-o. It begins with rather baffling close-up shots then pans out to show the mayhem caused by the bee. At the end, the piano (which was suspended by the crane) is dropped onto the dog by accident.
