Today’s music video of the day comes to us from The Hooters, a Philadelphia-based band whose sound will always be identified with the mid-80s. And We Danced is their biggest hit to date. It’s certainly the one that most people think of if they think about The Hooters.
This music video, which was hugely popular back when MTV played music videos, was shot at a drive-in theater in Exton, Pennsylvania in the summer of 1985. Unfortunately, the theater has since been torn down but, in a sense, it will exist forever because of this music video. The video itself was nominated for a Best New Artist award at the MTV Music Video awards but it lost to Take Me On by a-ha.
