The Kim Carnes Video That Gave 80s Kids Nightmares

Back in MTV's early years there was only one video terrifying enough to give kids nightmares aired at any hour of the day- Draw Of The Cards by Kim Carnes.

Kim was following up her one mega hit Bettie Davis Eyes with a track that had a little more edge, so it makes sense for the video to have a little edge, too. 

The video starts out like Kim's homage to The Wiz, and somewhere along the way Kim goes through the looking glass and finds herself in a dark land that looks like Downtown L.A. after midnight.

Draw of the Card reminds me of another 80s video that used to freak me out as a kid- Greg Kihn's Jeopardy, which takes place in a church seemingly from the same creepy neighborhood. Thanks for the nightmares MTV!
