Music Video of the Day: I Didn’t Mean To Turn You On by Robert Palmer (1986, directed by Terence Donovan)


Today’s music video of the day is for Robert Palmer’s cover of I Didn’t Mean To Turn You On, a song that was originally recorded by Cherelle in 1984.  Palmer, whose songs epitomized the 80s, would have been 71 years old today.

If this video looks familiar, that may be because it shares the same concept behind Palmer’s videos for Addicted To Love and Simply Irresistible, both of which were also directed by photographer Terence Donavon.  Once again, Palmer, looking like he should be trading commodities on Wall Street, performed while a group of statuesque models “played” his band behind him.   The video, however, added another group of models, dressed in white, who danced to the music and who had better rhythm than the models who made up Palmer’s band.

Enjoy!
