Dio — "Mystery"
Chuck Klosterman: Everyone assumes Ronnie James Dio lived in an ancient windswept realm populated by dragons and elfin thieves, but that's only a fraction of his mythos; after his three-year stint in Black Sabbath, he sometimes roamed sexualized dreamscapes dominated by teenage magicians. It's sad there are not videos like this today, since this was an excellent way for American kids to learn about lightning and telekinetic conjuring. Things get a little confusing at the 2:30 mark (I feel like Dio's conflict with the invisible werebear/alien should have been a larger part of the narrative), but at least the onscreen action corresponds with the song's undeniable chorus. At least we get an accurate portrait of unfathomable reality. Today, this brand of information is far too politicized.
