| The Rolling Stones: Undercover of the Night can still shock with its violent images
Up to this time period, this might have been the most controversial of music videos made before Madonna's "Like a Prayer" upped the ante, so to speak. This one takes place in a Central American country with Mick Jagger playing a double role: that of a kidnapped hostage and of someone who witnesses all the chaos surrounding him while that's going on. There's lots of gunplay with someone getting killed which was probably the main reason for the furor this particular video caused. I saw that version on "Night Flight" a Saturday late night music video show on USA during the '80s. I think that was the only time I watched that version at least until now when I just watched it on YouTube. I don't think I completely got what was going on in the video but I got the gist that Central America was a very violent place during that time. There was another version that just showed the group singing the song and the two people watching them-a teen boy and girl with the former trying to seduce the latter. That version I saw on another USA program called "Radio 1990". I definitely recommend the violent version of The Rolling Stones: Undercover of the Night.
