Godley & Creme – Cry

Godley & Creme - Cry

Perle Dimenticabili tira fuori pezzi deprecabili e assurdi, trovati conservati, per strani motivi, nel mio personale etere.

Vediamo oggi cosa esce fuori... 🙂

Godley & Creme - Cry

Prima fecero parte dei 10cc (con discrete memorabili canzoni) poi passarono ad un duo chiamato con i propri cognomi, ovvero Godley & Creme. Particolarità del video di questo one-shot degli anni 80 è l'anticipare l'idea del morphing di Black & White di Michael Jackson tramite primi piani e dissolvenze (la tecnologia era quella che era al tempo).


 

"Cry" is a song released by the English music duo Godley & Creme on 11 March 1985. It was included on the duo's album The History Mix Volume 1.

The song reached number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming Godley & Creme's lone Top 40 hit in the US apart from their former band, 10cc.

It reached No. 19 on the UK Singles Chart.

The duo also directed the song's music video, which featured faces blended into each other using dissolving and wiping effects.


Godley & Creme were an English rock duo formed in Stockport by Kevin Godley and Lol Creme. The pair began releasing albums as a duo after splitting from the rock band 10cc.

In 1979, they directed their first music video for the single "An Englishman in New York".

After this, they became involved in the production of videos for such artists as Ultravox, The Police, Yes, Duran Duran, Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Wang Chung, as well as directing the ground-breaking video for their 1985 single "Cry".

The duo split at the end of the 1980s. Both have since been involved in music videos, TV commercials, and sporadic music projects.
