Hello, I am a first time user and will try to keep it short and thank you for your patience. I am trying to identify a 80’s music video that got heavy play on MTV. I can’t remember the band or the song and have tried every kind of search imaginable.
The band was your typical 80"s synth band. Can’t recall what any of the members looked like or any part of the name but I keep going back to The Pet Shop Boys but can’t find the video after searching but same type of 80’s dance music.
The video; the video revolves around a room full of school children, boys and girls if I remember correctly, and they are all wearing plain white night shirts. The children are next to their beds which are lined up on the wall in a row, dormitory setting, on their knees with their hands folded in prayer. There are several nuns in the background in full black and white headdress.
As the video progresses, the school children are on their beds and in front of the beds engaged in some somewhat suggestive synchronized dance moves which if I recall, upsets the nuns.
I am 58 years old and consider myself sort of an expert on 80’s music ( you should see my cassette collection) but for the life of me can’t recall the artist or song related to this video.
I keep going back to The Pet Shop Boys “It’s a sin” but have searched their videos and that’s not it. Maybe the original video was banned?. If it was, I can’t find it anywhere.
I even found a video of a live performance of the song and the band has nuns on stage in the background. And oh ya, it’s not a Madonna tune either.
Anyway, I have reached the end of my rope on this and would appreciate any help that you could provide. I will visit on a daily basis to check for replies and answer promptly.
Thank you in advance for your patience and your help.
