Music Video Of The Day: Neighbours (1981, directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg)


Imagine Rear Window with Jimmy Stewart and his broken leg replaced by Mick Jagger and the other members of the Rolling Stones and you have the concept behind the video for today’s music video of the day.

Neighbours first appeared on Tattoo You and was inspired by Keith Richards’s problems with his own neighbours in New York City.  According to Richards, his neighbours got him evicted from his New York apartment building because they felt that he played his music too loudly.  The actual lyrics were written by Mick Jagger, who, again according to Richards, never had any trouble with his own neighbours.

The video was directed by Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who directed several videos for The Rolling Stones but who is perhaps best known for directing the documentary about the final days of the Beatles, Let It Be.
