Stand and Deliver

Stand and Deliver by Adam and the Ants was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, May 9, 1981 spending 5 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The extravagant video was directed by Mike Mansfield and helped sell the song. It contained a hanging sequence that was considered too violent by some music program producers, so an edited version was issued which excluded the scene altogether. This was Adam and the Ants' best selling single in the UK. Ant's look in the video was based on the costume David Hemmings' character wore in the 1968 film The Charge of the Light Brigade. It was a 19th century British military look that Ant adapted. The video was a huge part of the song's success, as it gave an image to Ant's "dandy highwayman" character.
