George Harrison - "Got My Mind Set On You" Version 1 (From the album "Cloud 9")
"Got My Mind Set on You" is a song written by Rudy Clark and originally recorded by James Ray in 1962, An edited version of the song was released later in the year as a single on the Dynamic Sound label. In 1987, George Harrison released a cover version of the song as a single, and released it on his album, Cloud Nine.
Three music videos were released for the cover version.
The first (directed by Gary Weis) starred a young Alexis Denisof vying for the heart of a girl in an amusement arcade.
The second, also directed by Weis, is Harrison sitting and playing in a study. As the song progresses, furniture and knick-knacks (like a stuffed squirrel, sentient chainsaw, and mounted stag and warthog) begin to dance along with the song. In the middle of the video, Harrison (through the use of a stunt double) performs a backflip from his chair and follows it with a dance routine before jumping back to his seat.
The second received significant airplay, and was nominated for three MTV VMAs.
The third featured Harrison and the band inside of a claw machine, while a young man tries to win a toy from the machine.
