Election Day. Arcadia. Featuring Grace Jones. Produced by Alex Sadkin. Album So Red the Rose. Wild kind of look to the day Opening eyes impale neon flickers She moon, she turning away The city's her slave but he's cheating his mistress. She's moody and grey She's mean and she's restless So restless, so restless indeed

Arcadia were a new wave British group formed in 1985 by Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, and Roger Taylor of Duran Duran as a side project during a break in that band's schedule. The project was only active during 1985 and 1986 for just one album, So Red the Rose, which was certified Platinum in the United States and included the singles "Election Day", "Goodbye Is Forever", "The Flame" and "The Promise (ft. David Gilmour and Sting)".

Arcadia - Election Day - Official Music Video. TV80s - Greatest Hits of the 80s. Released in 1985. Taken from "So Red The Rose" Album. Released by Parlophone Records in October 1985. Taken from the only band’s album So Red the Rose.

Election Day" was one of the few music videos he worked on; it was a big-budget affair shot in Paris over five days. Like the song, it doesn't make a lot of sense: there is some kind of catacomb, pretty girls, and candles. More songs from Arcadia. More songs with famous guest vocalists. More songs from one-hit wonders. More songs with a spoken part. More songs from 1985. It reached in the United Kingdom and Norway. very Seventh Stranger/Chauffeur from the Arena album.

Arcadia’s 1985 hit single Election Day had a galvanizing effect on me, compelling me to purchase the Duran Duran spin-off’s sole album So Red the Rose. I haven’t forgotten the bitter disappointment that slowly settled in upon listening to the remaining eight songs. The question is: does this album hold any value for those not already enamored of Duran Duran? The problem, to my ears anyway, with so much music from this era is the garish production so commonly applied to otherwise decent pop. It’s not that the songs on So Red the Rose are especially bad. But to say they’re generally overproduced is an understatement.
