Video Valentine: You're The Inspiration (1984)

1984's "Chicago 17" was the last album by the iconic group to feature bassist-vocalist Peter Cetera. And while the band continued to produce records for a few years after Cetera left to pursue solo success, "You're The Inspiration", the 3rd single from the album, may have been their best video.

I wonder how many people took notice of the young couple at the early stages of the video dressed as Billy Idol & Madonna and tried shipping them. At the time, Madonna was a stablemate of Chicago's, as Sire, Madonna's label, and Full Moon, Chicago's label, were both part of the Warner Bros. chain. Idol at that time was recording for Chrysalis.
