I think I was looking for new wave and The Outfield were just "rock".
I like the video, which is mega 80s. Mullets everywhere. The singer rocks the one-earring look. He also plays a Steinberger bass, which not even the 80s nostalgia of recent decades has brought back into fashion, as far as I know. I've heard that it's actually a really good bass; it just looks silly.
As for Rick Springfield, I'm a fan though overplay has beaten "Jessie's Girl" to a pulp for me. I can name twenty other songs from him that I'd rather hear.
