Body And Soul (video)
The Sisters of Mercy's first official music video ever.
A strange little thing, with its slow camera-panning across what looks like the fake ruins
of a roman coliseum. Lots of smoke, lots of orange and red lighting, lots of netting in the
foreground, and lots of extreme close-ups of Andrew Eldritch, who even bashes out a chord
on a guitar in a couple of scenes. He also appears to be wearing blue leather trousers in
a couple of shots.
A highly amusing and very silly video, which some are sure served as a learning experience
for the band and possibly even as a prototype for the video for This Corrosion...
On the right side below, there is a live version from the Royal Albert Hall 1985
and a more recent audience video from Stockholm 1991.
