Without A Reason Why

From the Department of Wonderfully Bad Mid-1970s Videos

Start with a song from a martial-arts exploitation movie.

Starring George Lazenby, the guy who stepped in as James Bond in the movie Sean Connery thought was too sappy.

Then recruit a former prog-rock band whose first album featured a slightly rocking version of Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring."

Then film a video where the band is inexplicably playing in front of a desert highway. And intercut with scenes from what seems like the worst Holiday Inn gig ever.

And add a scenes where the band boards a stairway that should lead to a plane (that isn't there) from a company called Pariah Airlines.

Oh, and drown the whole thing with tons of echo & reverb.

What's not to love? (And, not surprisingly, this was huge in Japan.)
