Music Video of the Day: Bombers in the Sky by Thompson Twins (1990, directed by ????)

Like so many of the songs that were written in the 80s and the early 90s, Bombers in the Sky was inspired by the fear of the nuclear war that so many people assumed was, at the time, inevitable.  However, the song was better known for being included on the soundtrack of Gremlins 2.

There are actually two videos for Bombers in the Sky.  They’re both pretty much the same, except that the second video mixes in scenes from Gremlins 2 with the band performing the song.  The second version is the version featured in this post.

Three years after the release of the single, Thompson Twins changed their name to Babble and recorded for three more years before calling it quits.
