Retro Saturday: The Skids (with a Maxell tape diversion)

Another song which I saw on VH1 Classic last night was "Into The Valley" by The Skids. Enjoy lead singer Richard Jobson's unique dance style at :

The best thing about "Into The Valley" of course was the TV ad for Maxell tapes from a couple of years later, which interpreted the lyrics of that track in its own unique way and now, thanks to the wonders of YouTube, you can too:

The other legendary Maxell ad featured "Me Ears Are Alight" I mean "The Israelites" by Desmond Dekker, which you can also find at They just don't make adverts like that anymore!!
