The Lyrics

This is criticism of the OS MV with Pat as a Defense Worker in WW2 daydreaming about being a P-51 pilot that also helps blow-up a German castle! Nice song, but video filled with nonsensical errors from start to finish!
(Chorus)
This concept might have started out so right
But this video is a silly sight
Action's absurd, especially her flight
So let's not pretend... (It's alright)

Rosie the Riveter turned Mustang girl
Open cockpit, singing to herself
Two seater, saboteur inside
T-6 Texan off the shelf!
A silent landing, now roaming Nazi ground
Colt in hand, takes Rolf by self! (Yeah, right)

(Chorus)

Inside the Schloss, enemy Reich
Set a bomb is the task
Avoid the guards and German lass
Herr General spots them at last
Alarm! Alarm! Schnell! Act fast!
Next, back in flight
SS pilot in Messer... Really?
No, that just can't be right!!!

(Chorus x2)

The Bomb explodes, the Nazis killed
"Midnight Angel " escapes- a thrill!
All this did was make me I'll!

(Chorus x2)

A daydream doesn't make it right
Low production values and poor light
Bad directing... singing in flight???
How much did they spend?

No, this video's not right!!!
To those who know it does offend!

Third verse last line is "All this did is make me ill", not I'll!!! I hate my Spellchecker!

I actually think I saw this video, many years ago. Don't remember the tune. Germans were so easy to sneak up on. Must have been deaf. Died quietly when stabbed. All of them carried MP-40's, but could not hit anything with them, even 10 meters away. Well, maybe just one guy, for dramatic effect. Like to run down steps in groups, blazing away. Died just as quickly when shot as when stabbed. Grenades had such long fuzes they could be thrown back. One grenade would blow up a tank. While making a giant fireball. I'm sure you have seen many other such movie images. I do remember the T-6, I think that is most of what I remember of the Benatar video. Got to see one nest to a P-51 at an airshow a couple years ago. Never realized until then that they were the same size.

The Texan is roughly the same length as a Mustang, but a radial and not an inline! Different as night and day. Couldn't really see the German plane but poor F/X and file footage made it laughable, especially with a SS officer flying it. I wonder if I'm the first here to use the OS to mock the OV...???

Just looked up the video on youtube. Lots of complaints about the audio quality. Silly, but what do you expect from a pop music video. One guard for the whole building. German officers at that level would have worn a lot of decorations. Four saboteurs in flight suits walk down the hall and plant dynamite sticks with a mechanical clock timer in the heating vent. The German officers didn't see, or hear anything. I think the plane the SS officer got into was a T-6 painted in simulated German colors. Not unheard of in American made war movies. There were four T-6 Texans in the opening scene. A modern car visible outside the airport fence as Benatar and her partner take off. With no offense to a moderately listenable singer (and the song isn't all that bad), if I had wanted to knock out that German HQ, I'd have sent a flight of B-25's, rather than a young woman with a switchblade.

Most German castles were off-limits to bombers due to lack of strategic value, propaganda purposes for resistance if bombed, and in the last year of the war were preserved for Allied Administration. The SS did some of their best tech experiments in castles.

I recall that during the invasion of Panama some US personnel lost their lives in an effort to preserve Manuel Noriega's personal jet for use by his successor, rather than just blowing it up. I once did some translation work for a man who was writing a book about the bombing of the abbey at Monte Cassino in Italy. The Germans were not using it as an OP, the monks had persuaded them to leave. After the structure was bombed, the wreckage made excellent defensive positions for the Germans to hold off Allied attacks.

Technically not true Patrick as there were German artillery positions below the abbey walls that hit the Allies. This caused the wrong conclusion about being an Observation Post and the dropping of 1500 tons of bombs which allowed the German paras to hold off 30,000 troops for 5 months! The Winter Line and Battle of Rome cost a total of 55,000 Allied deaths to 20,000 German until the paras withdrew. There were also tunnel networks under Monte Cassino and the Catholics helped the Germans with the knowledge.
