Joan Armatrading "Love and Affection"

Another one for the "simple , cheap and effective music videos" category, this was put together in 1976.  Although visual effects like these have been done to death now, the uncomplicated execution makes this video stand the test of time.

Great song too.  Tracy Chapman doesn't site Armatrading as one of her influences, but you can't help notice the similarities.  The genre, characterised by insightful lyrics with influences of folk, blues, jazz, rock, and international styles, was partly Joan's creation.
