Music Video of the Day: Got My Mind Set On You by George Harrison (1987, directed by Gary Weis)


There were actually two videos released for George Harrison’s cover of Got My Mind Set On You.  I shared the better-known version yesterday.  

The other version features Alexis Denisof, trying to win the heart of a young woman at an arcade by winning her a toy ballerina.  George and the band appear in a hand-cranked movie viewer.

Like the other version, this video was directed by filmmaker Gary Weis.  Along with the videos for Got My Mind Set On You and several short films for Saturday Night Live, Gary Weis also directed the videos of Paul Simon’s You Can Call Me Al and Walk Like An Egyptian by the Bangles.
