It’s NZ Music Month and the Herald has partnered with NZ On Screen to bring you a music video of a classic New Zealand song every day of the month. Today’s pick is the most well-known single for 1980s pop heroes The Mockers.

Today's Music Month flashback is Forever Tuesday Morning by The Mockers.

The 1984 song is number 75 on APRA's Top 100 NZ Songs.

For the music video, lead singer Andrew Fagan sits in darkened solitude, a prisoner of his emotions while the band heads into the TVNZ makeup room, passing Radio with Pictures pre-senter Karyn Hay on the way.

After some makeup room mischief involving drummer Steve Thorpe, a can of hairspray and a budgie cut, the band performs, with Fagan now dressed in a flowing white shirt and trademark leotard ensemble.
