VIDEO OF THE WEEK: HALL & OATES – ‘MANEATER’
September 30, 2019
With promo videos still a long way from modern storyboarding and generous budgets, Hall & Oates’ ‘Maneater’ is very much a product of the era that spawned it.
Yet for all that, it remains a fascinating snapshot of the times thanks to its bold colours, outsized and baggy jumpers and Daryl Hall’s wonderfully gravity-defying quiff.
Factor in the subject matter, wherein the avaricious New York of the early 80s is put firmly under the microscope and the result is a snapshot of a point of time, captured forever on video.
