Song of the Day – “Questionnaire” – Chaz Jankel

Jankel was a member of Ian Dury and the Blockheads and branched out to make a couple of dance-oriented albums. This is my favorite of his tracks.

He also wrote “Ai No Corrida”, which was a hit for Quincy Jones.

I’ve got to believe (though I can’t find evidence) that the video was directed by his sister Annabel. Some of the animation is reminiscent of her work on the video for Elvis Costello’s “Accidents Will Happen”. She branched out from music videos to help create Max Headroom and co-direct the feature films DOA and Super Mario Bros.
