Music Video/Song

"Heart and Soul" by T'Pau - 

The band was named after a Vulcan high priestess on Star Trek. This was their only hit.
 
This shot up the charts after it was used in a commercial for Pepe jeans.
 
The album sold over 4 million copies in the UK. The follow-up wasn't even released in the US.
 
Lead singer Carol Decker was offered, but declined the role of Don Johnson's wife on Miami Vice.
 
When in the US, Decker says she is often mistaken for Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York. It must be the red hair and British accent.
 
The album was retitled T'Pau for its American release later in 1987.
