Here's my video for 'Night After Night' by the band UK. I used visuals from the OGWT show (lo-fi, but precious), and combined it with sound in pleasant quality, taken from the live album 'Night After Night', recorded in 1979. I just tried to make it an enjoyable audiovisual experience, that wil bring back some good memories!

'Night After Night' is a great pop song in the progressive rock style, but short and poppy, with a catchy melody and even a big sing along chorus. As such it's a forbode of things to come: the band Asia developed these elements to a new style, but less proggy & British, and more commercial & predictable. But hey: that's how progrock survived in the eighties!!! Here are the lyrics:

Darkness descends on the freeway
Traffic lights, turning to stone
I'm driving myself half crazy
I wish I were headed for home
Say girl, when we're not together
I feel like I'm losing my mind

CHORUS:
Night after night, it's the same lousy fight
And I know it ain't right that it's night after night

I look in the eyes of a stranger
Reminding myself of the past
Yesterday is what I will leave it
The future is moving too fast
Say girl, when we're not together
I feel like I'm losing my mind

(chorus)

I see the red lights on the runway
This jet is moving too fast
I hear the last roar of the engine
and beautiful silence at last
Think of the distance between us
all of the words left unsaid

(chorus)
