80's Flashback

Will Powers, Adventures In Success, 1983. Photographer Lynn Goldsmith teamed up with Sting to create this parody of the self-help/get rich quick gurus that plagued the nation during the Reagan era. The album, Dancing For Mental Health, also featured contributions from Carly Simon, Steve Winwood, Nile Rodgers, and Thompson Twins' Tom Bailey. That's Goldsmith's voice in the clip, processed to sound like a man. The second single, Kissing With Confidence, was actually a hit record in the UK, but I've always liked this one better. You are an important person. A rare individual. Make it habit. Make it happen. Watch for Meat Loaf at the beginning.
