Video for "Personal Jesus", 1989:

Originally, I was hunting this down for raqs, because she introduced me to the Marilyn Manson cover recently, but she was unaware it was a cover of this older song. I hadn't seen the video... since it came out, basically, I think. But I figured YouTube must have it. And then I thought, why not share it with everyone?

Now, the weird thing? This isn't the video for the song that I remember. :-/ So now I'm trying to figure out what video I *am* remembering, and what it could possibly be *for*.

Can you describe the video you're thinking of?

Very similar, but... Western desert landscape. But (IIRC), bright, super-saturated colors. (Rather than the sepias/b&w's of this vid.) Guys in black. What I see most clearly in my head is a shot from ground level, looking out at a highway, with a lizard in the near foreground. I also see in my head a guy in black, with black sunglasses and cowboy boots, tapping his heel to (what I really thought was) the rhythm of this particular song.

the guys all go into either a bar or a diner and are sitting at an L shaped counter at some point.

Sort of like that famous Edward Hopper painting?

Nope, never saw them in concert.

Not getting a *ping* off the bar/diner image, but that might not mean anything. (Clearly my brain will LATCH onto something, but not necessarily retain other stuff.)

OMG I know what you're talking about, and no I can't remember what it's called. Augh!

This is going to drive me craaaazy!
