Music Video of the Day: I’m Gonna Follow You by Pat Benatar (1980, directed by ????)

The 29th music video played MTV on its first day of broadcast, August 1st, 1981, was the video for Gerry Rafferty’s saxophone classic, Baker Street.

Baker Street was followed by Pat Benatar’s I’m Gonna Follow You, the video of which featured Benatar singing while walking around a seemingly deserted city.  Benatar is effortlessly soulful and sexy in this video, putting most of today’s so-called pop divas to shame.
