Music Video of The Day: Living After Midnight by Judas Priest (1980, directed by Julien Temple)


The most interesting thing about this performance clip music video is that it was directed by Julien Temple.  Temple was and still is best known for documenting the brief but memorable career of The Sex Pistols.  He went on to direct two Sex Pistol films, The Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle and The Filth and the Fury.

Temple has directed music videos for just everyone who was anybody on the British rock scene: Sex Pistols (naturally), Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Rolling Stones, Duran Duran, Sade, and many others.  He also directed the music video for Planet Texas, in which Kenny Rogers is abducted by aliens.  The music industry brings together even the most unlikely of collaborators.

Enjoy!
