This wasn’t the Animotion of “Obsession,” though. Gone were lead singers Astrid Plane and Bill Wadhams, and in their places were Paul Engemann (from the great but short-lived Device) and Cynthia Rhodes (who co-starred in Staying Alive and Dirty Dancing and is married to Richard MarxYOU CAN SEE THE VIDEO HERE. And 80’s lovers will get an extra blast from the past because the intro to the video is from the late, great, NIGHT TRACKS from TBS, which I loved because they played the videos I would never see on MTV.
