Music Video of the Day: (Forever) Live and Die by Orchestral Manoeuvres In the Dark (1986, directed by Leslie Libman and Larry Williams)


Today’s music video of the day is the video for one of OMD’s most underrated songs, (Forever) Live and Die.  It’s a performance clip, along with a few shots that incorporate the city and the beach.  The 80s were a good time for videos that featured the members of New Wave bands walking through seemingly deserted European cities.  A few years after the release of this video, INXS perfected the style with their video for Never Tear Us Apart.

There are two directors credited for this director.  Leslie Libman is still directing, though mostly for television shows like NCIS and Bull.  Larry Williams also directed the video for OMD’s Shame.

Enjoy!
