A sensual shock of styles
18 June 2017 | by Rodrigo_AmaroSee all my reviews

Sensual, romantic and starring two of the hottest stars of its period, this posthumous clip of "Roy Orbison: I Drove All Night" is a video classic that truly transposes the sentiment of the song into images. The idea doesn't change much from frame to frame (mostly consists of tender moments of a loving couple, played by Jason Priestley and Jennifer Connelly - both at the glorious peak of their beauty - and archive footage from Orbison in other songs made to match this song), so in order to leave it all more interesting the director used of a cinematic language already existing but perfected and explored to a whole new level with Oliver Stone at that decade's entrance (and I don't need to mention the film). Fast cuts, the use of several camera types, lenses and film stocks, an exciting delirious visual mixture of color, controlled colors and black-and-white, speed vs. more balanced velocity and so on. And there's also some "Wild at Heart" kind of vibes.

It's such a beautiful song and an even more spectacular video. Besides the loving couple concept, there's plenty of solo images of Priestley driving days and nights in desert roads, which is the lyrics idea "just to get to you...I drove all night". Connelly and Priestley had the presence and charisma as the main couple; and despite the heavy 1990 style, which doesn't appeal to everybody these days, the clip isn't all that dated. They'd still make a standard couple today, all Hollywood style and that casting decision couldn't been better. Along with "Wicked Game" by Chris Isaak, this is one of the hottest clips of that decade and both feature some of the greatest music moments of all time with their unforgettable sounds and songs.

Fun fact for those who don't know: the song was originally written for Orbison, but he didn't care much, then the writers lent it to Cyndi Lauper and a hit was born; it'd take a few more years for Roy to actually provide his rendition (a lot better than Cyndi's IMHO), released on a posthumous album in the early 1990's. 10/10
