"Goodbye Is Forever" is the second single released by the Duran Duran offshoot band, Arcadia. The song achieved success only in the United States, peaking at number 33 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in March, 1986. It also was released by Capitol Records in January 1986 in many regions around the world except the UK.
The video for "Goodbye is Forever" was directed by Marcello Anciano and featured Simon and Nick as figures "stranded in time", almost like two characters out of Samuel Beckett. They actually appear to be trapped within the elaborate mechanisms of a giant cuckoo clock whilst sitting on chairs that move along a circular railroad-guard. The moving chairs transport the two pop stars through many strange scenes and surreal episodes involving symbols of time.
