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!
