TRIVIA
Best known and most successful video for this song -- was an instant hit.

Michael Patterson first used the style in his 1981 student film Commuter, which was inspired by a scene in the 1980 film Altered States. Every frame of the animated sequences had to be traced by hand. (full story in the Songfacts entry)
