Music Video Spotlight: Baby Jane

Welcome to our first Music Video Spotlight where we’ll take a look at the music videos Rod Stewart has made throughout his career. First up, 80s favorite “Baby Jane”

“Baby Jane” debuted on 27 May, 1983 and has been doing anything but leaving us hanging since. This was the first single off his June ’83 release Body Wishes. “Jane” was the #1 song on six different charts around the world.

The video features Rod’s at-the-time band between shots of oh-so-eighties filters, camera angles, color-blocking, spandex and shoulder padded heartache. Case and point:

LYRICS

Baby Jane, don’t leave me hangin’ on the line
I knew you when you had no one to talk to
Now you’re moving in high society
Don’t forget, I know secrets about you
I used to think you were on my side
But now I’m no longer sure,
I wish I knew what I know now before

When I give my heart again, I know,
It’s gonna last forever
No one tell me where or when, I know,
It’s gonna last forever

Baby Jane, don’t it make you feel sad
Just when I thought that we were winning
You and I were so close in every way
Don’t time fly when you’re loving and laughing
I’ve said goodbye so many times
the situation ain’t all that new
Optimism’s my best defense
I’ll get through without you

When I give my heart again, I know,
It’s gonna last forever
No one tell me where or when, I know,
It’s gonna last forever
I won’t be that dumb again, I know,
It’s gotta last forever
When I fall in love again, I know,
It’s gonna last forever

Baby Jane, I’ve said all I want to say
Go your own way, don’t think twice about me
Cos I’ve got ideas and plans of my own
So long darling, I’ll miss you, believe me
The lesson learned was so hard to swallow
but I know that I’ll survive
I’m gonna take a good look at myself and cry

When I give my heart again, I know,
It’s gonna last forever
No one tell me where or when, I know,
It’s gonna last forever
When I fall in love again, I know,
It’s gotta last forever
I won’t be that dumb again, I know,
It’s gonna last forever
