Sue Sadd - "Looker" (1981)
Here is a fan made video for the song "Looker" performed by the new wave band Sue Sadd. The song is from the 1981 sci-fi film of the same name. I didn't know about the film or song back in the 80s and only after reading about it on Kindertrauma I believe did I hear the song for the first time. The song immediately grabbed me. The production and vocals are exactly that 80s sound that I love so much. It's a haunting type of track. I really like that it was written for the film and not something tacked on in title only. The lyrics line up with the film's story pretty well. The film was written and directed by Michael Michael Crichton of Jurassic Park fame among many other books. If you love 80s soundtrack pop music then give this a spin.
“You probably think I'm beautiful, Dr. Roberts, but I'm not. I have lots of defects to fix. I have a list right here. My nose is .2 millimeters too narrow. And my cheekbones are .4 millimeters too high. And my chin has a little .1 bump here. And my areola distance is 5 millimeters. And I have a mole here on my ribs. So I need plastic surgery.”
