I know there is some interest out there in the song and here is a nice clip of his video of it.  Give it 20 seconds or so to load and off it goes.  Short song but nice.

Dude their version came out when I was 15 (in 1983) and it was all dark and shit and at the time I was all dark and shit and the friends I hung around with were all dark and shit and it was just a really cool song.  Plus there's the cool album cover...



And the hair...

YouTube link since MTV won't let me watch outside the US  icon_evil

For those who don't know, the video is the work of Michel Gondry, a talented director who has made a ton of great music videos.  He also directed Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind & Science of Sleep.

Link to a bunch of the videos he's directed.

2nd one.

And I think the Gears of War commercial with this song in it is one of the suckiest attempts to blend music with content I've ever seen.

Is there an overarching theme to the song that I'm missing that some how connects to the game?

I ask because the song sucks and I cannot stand listening to the whole thing.
