Jason Matthews says he really likes this modern music video because it has a early 1980's vibe. He says it looks like it is filmed in the early 1980's but it has a mid 1990's cellphone. It also appears to show 1993 at the bottom of a heading in the video.

Matthews says the music is great and also has a 1980's vibe. He sees a part of the video which replicates Michael Jackson's Billie Jean. He also doesn't know why a music video such as this is filmed in an Asian country.

Lyrics:

Annie, don't run away

Where I can't find you, the game has gone too far

Talking, a lot of talk

Playing telephone, twenty city blocks

Annie, they have the dossier

The investigation's already underway

And I tried Justine, she said to give you a ring

And I try to sleep but all I can hear's the beep

Answering, answering machine

Answering, answering machine

Just your answering, answering machine

(Won't you come and find me?)

Answering, answering machine

(Annie, won't you come and find me?)

Hey man, this is Ric

Uh, Callie just called me and she said that she saw Annie acting in a dirty movie

Highway Madonna, evasion is her trade

There was no other, now a shadow at her place

With the brush you left, I comb the alleyways

I don't miss a beat, the tableau stays in place

Annie, I was closing in

But I smeared the number walking in the rain

The girl down the hall, she said to give you a call

And I try to sleep but all I can hear's the beep

From your answering, answering machine

Answering, answering machine

Just your answering, answering machine

Answering, answering machine

Answering, answering machine (Won't you come and find me?)

Answering, answering machine (Annie, won't you come and find me?)

Just your answering, answering machine (Won't you come and find me?)

Answering, answering machine (Annie, won't you come and find me?)

If you have any information leading to the whereabouts of Annie

Don't hesitate to call 976-LUV-LORN

That's 976-LUV-LORN

LUV with a "U", thank you
