- Addictions: The DVD

Sadly no longer with us, the suave
Robert Palmer had grooved & schmoozed since the '70s. Songs like Sneakin' Sally Thru The Alley, Which One Of Us Is The Fool, Bad Case Of Loving You and Johnny & Mary reflect the early music video days, but where the videos are lacking, the songs are still great. Before his stint with the Duran Duran guys in Powerstation (with the infectious Some Like It Hot, Riptide and Get It On cover), he had success with songs like Looking For Clues, Pride and Some Guys Have All The Luck. His classic clip is of course Addicted To Love (with the girls miming instruments behind him) - it was revisited with clips for Simply Irresistible and I Didn't Mean To Turn You On, and has since then been ripped off as much as the "king of the world" shot from Titanic. Sweet Lies and Every Kinda People adds up to 18 songs from a man who will be missed. The DVD contains no extras but has the same (sometimes silly) introductions and interjections by Palmer as it was on its first release on video about ten years ago.
