To my Atlantic colleague Andrew Sullivan, in the spirit of constructive criticism :
You host an important 80s Video Contest on the Atlantic's site and don't include this?????
Yes, it's Robert Palmer's immortal Addicted to Love, with the zombie girls:
To help readers save time in their other voting:
Obvious winner of Andrew's "best video" is Sledgehammer, though Smalltown Boy is the best song;
Worst can only be the incredible Dog Police.
And the coveted Best-Worst category must in fact be a contest for runner-up to "Addicted." Just ask yourself: which other Best-Worst candidate has inspired half as many spin-offs and parodies? And while I don't know whether any of the other nominees is, like Robert Palmer, no longer with us, out of respect to a man cut down while still stylish , a win by acclamation seems the least that is due.
