Joe Jackson: Breaking Us in Two



A Sunday music video that is shot on a preserved railway. I think we have reached peak Liberal England.

I have chosen two Joe Jackson tracks before: the wonderful It's Different for Girls and the quasi-classical Nocturne no. 4.

Breaking Us in Two comes from his 1982 album Night and Day. It was a bigger hit in the US than the UK. I have always regarded it as a companion piece to the uptempo Steppin' Out on the same LP.

The railway is the Keighley and Worth Valley. More than that, the video was shot at Oakworth , which was the station in Lionel Jeffries' film of The Railway Children.

"Right away, Mr Jackson."

Any idea where the street in the video is located?
