Madness - House of Fun (Official Video)
Click here for more Madness:
'House Of Fun' was released as a one-off single in 1982 and went to #1 in the UK, staying in the chart for nine weeks. The song is arguably the best example of
Madness' "nutty sound", a combination of fairground vaudeville, ska and out-and-out pop. Filmed on location in North London, it finds our boys acting out their coming-of-age tale in true Madness style.

    Why was this their only Number One? It’s their best song (in my opinion) but a lot more of their music deserved it too.

    This is the type of video you make when it is 1982, your song is about emerging manhood and your budget is £15 per group member. (How much was a return saver ticket to Great Yarmouth back then?) Looks like it was lot of fun!! Wish I had been part of it - I was 9 and didn’t know Madness!

    Love them it's the old school song, Baggy Trousers, House Of Fun, reminds of me of my school days, 1982. I was only 9yrs old then. Bring back the the 80s music it's better than the stuff we've got nowadays.

    Early days of MTV.. When it was worth watching.. Music from bands that could be heard nowhere else. MTV likely launched the careers of many bands.The music videos from Madness were all funny as hell!

    Yeah, my parents' generation had the Beatles, but we had Madness. I'm happy with that.

    • Polly Motley

      If you ask me, we (Generation Madness) actually got the better deal. Adam Ant, Chas & Dave, Human League, even the return of the Kinks! Videos into the bargain. Nothing against the Beatles, but there was just something more English - happy and bonkers - about 80's music. (Of course now I've written that Herman's Hermits, Gerry and the Pacemakers, and Cilla Black spring to mind, along with 'Penny Lane,' all incredibly English, but there you go.) Plus Madness never went all hippy and dreary. Or spun off into some horror like 'Wings!' At any rate I really like your comment; it's very sweet and perceptive!
