Kids in America
Kim Wilde Lyrics


Looking out a dirty old window
Down below the cars in the city go rushing by
I sit here alone and I wonder why

Friday night and everyone's moving
I can feel the heat but it's soothing, heading down
I search for the beat in this dirty town (downtown)

The young ones are going
(Downtown) the young ones are growing
We're the kids in America (whoa)
We're the kids in America (whoa)
Everybody live for the music-go-round

Bright lights, the music gets faster
Look, boy, don't check on your watch, not another glance
I'm not leaving now, honey, not a chance

Hot-shot, give me no problems
Much later, baby, you'll be saying nevermind
You know life is cruel, life is never kind (kind hearts)

Don't make a new story
(Kind hearts) don't grab any glory
We're the kids in America (whoa)
We're the kids in America (whoa)
Everybody live for the music-go-round

La la la la-la la-la
La la la la-la la, sing
La la la la-la la-la
La la la la-la la

Come closer, honey, that's better
Got to get a brand-new experience, feeling right
Oh, don't try to stop, baby, hold me tight

Outside a new day is dawning
Outside suburbia's sprawling everywhere
I don't want to go, baby

New York to east California
There's a new wave coming, I warn ya
We're the kids in America (whoa)
We're the kids in America (whoa)
Everybody lives for the music-go-round

La la la la-la la-la
La la la la-la la, sing
La la la la-la la-la
La la la la-la la

We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America
We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America
We're the kids
We're the kids
We're the kids in America

martjek

Video from 1981 has better quality than many 2017 youtube videos..

JJ Vernig

@MVE Indeed, or maybe 1 inch type B (Bosch). It was the standard for the late 70s till half 80s in the Netherlands and Germany. Why everybody is talking about home formats in this thread is beyond me.

Maybe there is some more sharpness in the original recording, it's shot in 576i PAL and now it's here in 480p.

Ben Jason

Very far from the truth

Douglas Dixon

I don't know about this video, but VHS surpassed Beta in the 1980s because you could record for 2,4, or 6 hours which meant you could record a full movie. Yes, Beta had a better picture.

MVE

At that time recordings inside the studio were made on analog Ampex Quad or 2" formats (as in this video). Outside recordings (in the field) were filmed on 16mm film (since there were no portable lightweight HQ videocameras yet), edited, scanned and recorded on again Ampex Quad/2" tape. You can see this clearly on 70s/early 80s shows like Monty Python.
