Hey, did anybody know this strange but cool video of the well-known America song “The Border” from the album “Your Move”, 1983?
Sorry that the video has wrong aspect ratio, I tried to fix it but failed.
By the way, the song was written by Russ Ballard, but Dewey Bunnell was dissatisfied with its lyrics, so he rewrote them. Bunnell remembers: “Because he was very British, [Ballard] had used some cliche lyrics that, to us as Americans, sounded incongruous. He was trying to get a desperado-type feel but used words like Pasadena. The lyrics just didn’t get the whole border thing and that Mexicali feel that he was envisioning. I asked to rewrite it, and he was receptive, so I wrote a story about running away and trying to escape something.”
I found the video on the official band website, venturahighway.com. I do not own the copyright of this video. I have uploaded it to promote and support those artists.
