“A Fine Fine Day” – Tony Carey


A favorite of mine from the early days of MTV, this is a great (and sadly forgotten) example of 1980s mainstream rock. “A Fine Fine Day” managed to get into the top 30 of the Billboard charts back in 1984 and the video got a lot of play back in the day. The song is not only very good, the accompanying video is dramatically compelling as well. The mob-themed plot may not be all that original, but for a music video (especially from back in the day), it’s quite mature and adult.  I’m surprised no one has thought to cover this.  An exceptional, underappreciated gem.
