If That's What You Demand

More Utopia

Here's a weird little video I never knew existed until a reader (thanks Steph) mentioned it.

This was the closest Utopia ever got to a hit single, getting up to the high-30s on the Top 40 chart.

And it wasn't sung by Todd Rundgren, it was sung by bassist Kasim Sulton. With the rest of the band standing against greenscreens pretending to be newscasters.

Ah, the 80s.

(And am I the only one who feels weirdly nostalgic for news anchors who held actual sheets of paper, then placed them face-down on the desks in front of them?)
