What do you get when you set David Bowie and Mick Jagger loose in an abandoned flour mill?
You get the video for their version of Dancing In The Street. Their cover of the classic tune by Martha Reeves and the Vandellas was recorded to raise money for the Live Aid famine relief charity. The video was shown twice during the Live Aid event and it also aired before theatrical showings of Ruthless People, a film for which Jagger had contributed to the soundtrack. The video was also a hit on MTV, where it helped to introduce both Bowie and Jagger to a new generation of listeners.
The video was directed by David Mallet, who did the majority of Bowie’s videos in the 80s and 90s.
