Flashback Friday Music Video
Our video today is Never Say Never by the San Francisco new wave band Romeo Void. The song first appeared on the band’s EP which was also called Never Say Never and was released as a single in 1982.
Although the song did not hit the top 40, it did become a popular video during the early years of MTV. The song’s success led to the band being signed by Columbia. Their major-label debut, Benefactor also featured Never Say Never but it was a shorter and “cleaner” version.
The band had a top forty hit in 1984 with A Girl in Trouble (Is a Temporary Thing), however, many would argue that Never Say Never is actually the band’s best-known song. Also in 1984, Never Say Never was part of the soundtrack of the movie Reckless starring Aidan Quinn and Daryl Hannah.
