Can you name the THIRD biggest hit for Men Without Hats? Here it is

Published Jan. 14, 2015

You can watch this video if you want to, you can leave it all behind, but if your friends want to watch a Men Without Hats video besides Safety Dance, I would recommend Moonbeam.

Men Without Hats has chiseled out their place in '80s lore when Safety Dance became one of the top songs of 1983. They shed their one-hit wonder label when they scored the Top 20 hit Pop Goes The World in 1988 that has been used in advertising campaigns in recent years. The follow-up single to Pop Goes The World was Moonbeam and although it did not chart in the U.S. it was a Top 40 hit in their native Canada. Video highlights for the perky dance song include the usual Men Without Hats synth hooks and the goofy charm with a baby keyboard player and Elvis impersonator.

The Moonbeam video is a continuation of the Pop Goes The World video, which follows the story of Johnny and Jenny and their pursuit of musical fame. The girl who played "Jenny" in the Men Without Hats videos was a secret for many years, but the band recently revealed that the actress is Louise Court, who left her career in music videos behind and had to settle on becoming the editor-in-chief for Cosmopolitan magazine.

Men Without Hats still tour and even released an album as late as 2012.
