All I Want is You

Back when U2 were still earnest, unpretentious, rabble-rousing bleeding-heart liberals, Anton Corbijn made a striking video clip for one of the band's most underrated singles, 1988's "All I Want is You". Anchored by a straightforward unrequited-love narrative set in a circus camp, and featuring the main protagonists of a dwarf and a trapeze artist, the black-and-white promo for "All I Want is You" still ranks as one of the most poignant videos to ever emerge from the otherwise glitzy, excess-filled 1980s. Peruse it here.
