The Brilliant Stupidity Of Robert Palmer’s 1986 No. 1 Hit ‘Addicted To Love’

Robert Palmer's Addicted To Love — which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 35 years ago — is best known for its brilliantly idiotic video, which features the singer performing in front of five stunning mannequin-like models bearing vapid facial expressions and holding musical instruments that they’re not even pretending to mime convincingly.

Rob's Revenge (part II)

The demos Palmer makes are very comprehensive. Everything he wants on his record is musically intact before a single session is booked. "To a certain extent, the album Pride is all me. I brought on the other players to articulate the parts, a drummer, for instance, and threw away the machine. There were various bits and pieces I wanted some experts
