VIDEO OF THE WEEK: REO Speedwagon – ‘Keep On Loving You’
November 12, 2018
Written by lead singer Kevin Cromin after finding out about a pre-martial infidelity, this is as heartbreaking as it is timeless.
The video to ‘Keep On Loving You’ was instrumental in securing REO Speedwagon a Top 10 hit on both sides of the Atlantic.
Not only was it directed by Bruce Gowers, who previously helmed the groundbreaking video for Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, it was also the 17th video to be shown on MTV’s launch day before going on heavy rotation.
The result was one of the first power ballad hits of the 1980s.
