I've been a bit obsessed with Bette Midler for the past week, so I thought I would spread the joy around. This is the music video to Bette's 1984 cover of the Rolling Stones' "Beast of Burden." Bette's interpretation is fierce, to say the least, and her vocals are spot on as always. As an added bonus, the video, which like most music videos in their infancy, is a concert clip, but there's actually a little concept behind the footage. The music video also gives Bette the opportunity to be her loud, brassy self and have some fun with Mick Jagger, also relishing the opportunity to poke a little fun at himself. Why oh why wasn't this nominated for a Video of the Year VMA in 1984 when it's obviously cooler than at least two of the nominees?
