Released back in 1981, ‘Stand and Deliver’ reached Number 1 in the UK charts, with its glam punk, new wave sound.
The video was iconic and pictured Adam Ant and the band dressed in highwayman gear – the style of the band, certainly helped promote the band’s popularity and made them stand out from the rest.
Adam & The Ants – ‘Stand And Deliver’
Following the success of their previous single, Adam and the Ants released the title-track from their third album, and scored their second UK Number 1 in a row.
Still in the same glam punk style and genre, Adam Ant made a reappearance as the highwayman in the video, however dressed early-on, as a male Cinderella. Not quite as catchy as ‘Stand and Deliver’ but still packs a punch.
Adam & The Ants – ‘Prince Charming’
It was in 1982 that Adam Ant broke away from his band and released his first, incredible, solo single, ‘Goody Two Shoes’.
The single also rocketed to Number 1 in the UK charts and scored him, his third Number 1 in the space of a year.
The video breaks away from some of the highwayman imager, however still maintains the fantastic glam punk style and this song is catchy as hell! I defy anyone not to adore this incredible song!
