80's Music Video/song

Hey!!

I dont post too much, but i was hoping you all could help me with this video/song ... Basically the song was about some dude getting a girl in a bomb shelter and impressing her ... it was a pretty mellow track (kinda Jazzy) and was way cool... sorry i dont have much more to go with...

if your in the Oklahoma City area, they are using that song in "The Original Free RV and Boat Show" commercial for this weekend (1/14-1/15) ..

Thanks for any help!!!!!!

It's a Donald Fagen song, probably "IGY (International Geophysical Year)".

ETA: Actually it was the other single off The Nightfly album, called "New Frontier".

Thanks!!!!

.... i thought it was on the tip of my tongue, but i would never have rembered that ... it sure is "New Frontier" ... i havent heard that song in years and then this commercial had it as background music ...

$1 would have gone to I-Tunes if they had that available!!

Thanks for the help!

Wasn't that animated (or was it just parts of it)?

There were some animated scenes along with the live action scenes. Great video and song, one of the first videos I remembered from watching MTV in the early '80s. I think The Nightfly CD includes this video.
