When it comes to artists that consistently went all in and produced provocative, memorable and big theatrical music videos, Billy Joel was one of the tops. Beyond having an incredible assembly of amazing, timeless songs, the man put together a great library of music videos as well.

“Pressure” is also one of the bigger, stand out videos in the early days of MTV as well. It’s one that calls back to Kubrick, The Parallax View and The Marathon Man among other films. Scott Mendelson rejoins as we talk about the video as well as veer off on discussions of the homages.
