Wonderful moment from Sakamoto and Purple Rain hotty Jill Jones and some mad Japanese female backing singers – a technique ripped off 20 years later by that bimbo from No Doubt!!

Iggy Pop/Ryuichi Sakamoto – Risky (1987)

https://i0.wp.com/www.justinspaintings.com/images/p128_PinkDress.jpg

As you lie in the dark

With your pink dress on

You look risky. lovely. risky.



Interesting late-eighties collaboration here between two greats in different musical genres, Messrs. Iggy Pop and Ryuichi Sakamoto.

Bill Laswell was also involved in the songwriting, I believe.

Some background and words about the great innovative video.

In 1987, Pop appeared on the mostly instrumental album, Neo Geo by Japanese composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.

The music video for “Risky”, written and directed by Meiert Avis, won the first ever MTV “Breakthrough Video Award”.

The ground breaking video explores (Persian: فریدون اسفندیاری)’s, transhumanist philosopher FM-2030’s ideas of “Nostalgia for the Future”, in the form of an imagined love affair between a robot and one of Man Ray’s models in Paris in the late 1930’s!

Additional inspiration was drawn from Jean Baudrillard, Edvard Munch’s 1894 painting “Puberty”, and Roland Barthes ” Death of the Author”.

The surrealist black and white video uses stop motion, light painting, and other retro in-camera effects techniques.

Meiert Avis shot Sakamoto while at work on the score for “The Last Emperor” in London. Sakamoto also also appears in the video painting words and messages to an open shutter camera.

Iggy Pop, who performs the vocals on “Risky”, chose not appear to in the video, allowing his performance space to be occupied by the surrealist era robot! Who can tell the difference?

Born in a corporate dungeon

Where people are cheated of life

I knew I could never stay home no

As you lie in the dark

With your pink dress on

You look risky lovely risky lovely

Child of the whispering skies

Risky that’s your name

Risky unashamed

Risky show your style

Risky love’s on trial

You make me feel that this heart is real

When you hold me love me hold me love me

Girl with the scream in her eyes

Risky that’s your name

Risky unashamed

Risky show your style

Risky love’s on trial

People fall apart all the time

I’ve been hit enough to know why

Climb to this point move on

Climb to this point move on

Career, career acquire, acquire

But what is life without a heart

There’s standing room only

Somebody better tell the truth

Proceed at your own risk

Risky that’s your name

Risky unashamed

Risky show your style

Risky love’s on trial

Why feel so sad

Let your heart be glad

Love is risky lovely risky lovely

Child of the whispering skies

Born in a corporate dungeon

Where people are cheated of life

I knew I could never stay home

Risky love, risky love, risky love, sweet love

Risky love, risky love, give me love, sweet love, risky love, risky love
