  1. Shona Laing

Synopsis

Initially avoided by radio stations (who were uncomfortable with the title), Kennedy became Shona Laing's biggest international single — No 2 in New Zealand and No 14 in the US rock charts — in a career notable for stylistic volte-faces. Here, the acoustic songbird of 1905 is recast as a synth-pop vixen, in an austere clip that juxtaposes native beaches, brutalist architecture and poignant archival footage of the ill-fated President himself.
