His real name is Stuart Leslie Goddard, but you might remember him as Adam Ant. Following a five-year stint as frontman for Adam and the Ants, the new wave singer embarked on a solo career in 1982.
Adam Ant’s first and biggest solo hit was “Goody Two Shoes.” It went to #1 in the U.K. and Australia, #2 in Ireland, #4 in Canada, and #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. The song has endured. In 2019, “Goody Two Shoes” was included in the first season of the hit series The Umbrella Academy.
The music video imagines a day in the life of Adam Ant. The action follows the singer from the moment he wakes up in the morning until he’s back in his bedroom that night with a female reporter played by British actress Caroline Munro. She also appeared in the video for Meat Loaf’s “If You Really Want To.”
