During the late seventies to mid-eighties, Godley & Creme recorded several albums as a duo, having their greatest success in 1985 with The History Mix Volume 1 album. That album contained the single "Cry," which was a good tune on its own, but it's the music video that propelled it to greatness.
The "Cry" music video, which was also directed by the duo, featured stark black & white faces of people that appeared to morph into one another, using simple fades and dissolves. CGI wasn't even in use during that time, but this video manages to create a striking effect using just simple film techniques.
What makes this video so brilliant was its concept, which was so simple and minimalist; the almost haunting images go so well with the music, providing an overall result of pure awesomeness.
Godley & Creme went on to become acclaimed music video directors through the 1980's; the morphing faces concept of "Cry" was copied in the music video for Michael Jackson's "Black or White," but despite using the latest CGI technology of that time, it still paled in comparison, as nothing can beat the original.
