Today's Music Month Flashback is Room that Echoes by Peking Man.

Peking Man's career peaked in 1985 with the release of this song, that became a number one hit and saw the band dominate the 1986 Music Awards.

Directed by John Day, the surrealistic video features animated computer graphics of the afore-mentioned room that echoes, slowly building wall by wall and tracking against a background of stars.

Singer Margaret Urlich is the only band member present, appearing as a lone silhouetted
figure dancing across a checkerboard floor.
