In 1984, the Alan Parsons Project released one of the all time great classic rock songs of the ’80s. ‘Don’t Answer Me’ was their last top 20 hit on the Hot 100 charts when it peaked at #15.
The music video below was also one of the more expensive music videos of its time costing over $50,000. The video is presented as a story in the fictional comic book series, The Adventures of Nick and Sugar, set in the ’30s in Florida. According to Wikipedia, “the video took 23 days to film, using a 40-man animation team, and combined traditional cel animation (in the rendering of the figures), stop-motion animation (for the majority of the movements), and even claymation.”
