“Self Control” by Laura Branigan: A Creepy 80’s Video About Mind Control

119

Laura Branigan’s hit “Self Control” is the epitome of everything 80s, but is also the epitome of everything MK ULTRA: a disturbing story of an MK slave manipulated by an abusive handler.

Released in 1984, Self Control rocked disco clubs around the world as ladies wearing big curly hair and shoulder pads danced frenetically with men wearing thick mustaches and majestic mullets. All of these beautiful people sang “I, I live among the creatures of the night” without realizing what it truly meant. They thought it was about a girl enjoying the nightlife – but that is only the face value.

The video of Self Control adds a significant layer to the song, one that is rather troubling. The singer is stalked by a masked man, who eventually ends up shirtless in her bedroom. Combined with the MK symbolism peppered through the video, Self Control becomes a tribute to the occult elite, a promotion of its symbolism and a celebration of their most sadistic practice: Monarch mind control (if you’ve never heard of this, please read this article before continuing).

When the video was released in 1984, the music industry was beginning to adopt the music video as a promotional tool and Self Control was rather groundbreaking in its scope. It was also the first video to be directed by Oscar-winning director William Friedkin, the director of The Exorcist.

When hiring a director who is famous for terrorizing an entire generation with the story of a demon-possessed girl, a certain level of creepiness is expected. And Friedkin surely delivered. However, contrarily to The Exorcist, the most disturbing elements of Self Control are not in your face but are instead implied through symbolism.

If you’ve read other articles on this site, you will probably find the symbolism easy to recognize, and even blatant. In short, it is a shameless celebration of the occult elite’s mind control agenda during an era when only a few people even knew these things existed. Let’s look at the video.

The Night is Her World

An advanced interpretation isn’t necessary to understand that Self Control is not simply about “nightlife”. It is mainly about Laura Branigan losing her will, her power and her very self at the hand of a faceless being. The chorus of the song sums up the situation:

You take my self, you take my self control
You got me livin’ only for the night
Before the morning comes, the story’s told
You take my self, you take my self control

The line “you take my self” is very significant, especially in the context of mind control. In psychology, the “self” is defined as follows:

The “self” consists of a person’s conscious and unconscious aspects, their personality, cognitions or thoughts and feelings. All these traits or aspects combine together into the person’s core identity. Other synonyms for “self” are soul, ego, personality, or individual.
– Self, Psychology Glossary

The ultimate goal of an MK handler is to take the “key” to the slave’s core personality and to create a new, programmable alter persona. This is accomplished through trauma and dissociation.  In this context, “the night” becomes a metaphor for dissociation, the trance-like state in which slaves are forced into during programming.
On to the video.
The video begins with a doll with brown hair reminiscent of Laura.

In MK symbolism, dolls represent the malleable and controllable alter personas of MK slaves.

We then see Laura herself, looking somewhat zoned out.

Laura looks somewhat zoned out as he partner sleeps in the bed.
There is a man lying in her bed. We assume it’s her boyfriend.

Laura then gets ready to go out. She is helped by weird people who appear out of nowhere.

As these people appear, we begin to understand that what happens in the video happens mostly in Laura's head.
As these people appear, we begin to understand that what happens in the video is mostly in Laura’s head.

When Laura goes outside, her “mind control journey” begins – and there is no lack of symbolism representing this.

As Laura stands outside, two mannequins floating in midair (a great way of representing dissociative MK slaves) appear behind her.

Right after she goes out, a luxury car pulls up in front of Laura.

The masked man appears to entrance Laura as he tells her to follow him.
A masked man is sitting in the back seat.

The masked man is the MK handler. While MK slaves are dissociated, their MK handlers have the ability to enter their mind and to control their thoughts and actions. The fact that this masked man is being driven around in the back of a luxury car implies his connection with the occult elite.

While dancing in a nightclub, Laura sees the masked man again. She follows him.

As we see the masked man stalking Laura, we also see a bunch of masks behind him indicating that MK slaves have no face, are interchangeable and are also MK slaves with multiple personas themsevles.
While the masked man stalks Laura in the club, we see a bunch of masks behind him indicating that MK handlers are also MK slaves themselves with multiple personas.

According to a recent poll*, 100% of women would NOT follow a man wearing a mask (*not a real poll). So why does Laura follow him? Because she has no self-control. The lyrics of the first verse perfectly describe the mind state of an MK slave who is at the mercy of the handler during dissociation (aka “the night”).

In the night, no control
Through the wall something’s breaking
Wearing white as you’re walkin’
Down the street of my soul

The rest of the chorus is a rather poignant description of the mind state of a dissociated slave who lives in a dream world fabricated by her handler.

A safe night, I’m living in the forest of my dream
I know the night is not as it would seem
I must believe in something, so I’ll make myself believe it
That this night will never go

Laura cannot fight the will of the masked man and finds herself following him. He takes her to a hidden section of the nightclub, where we discover an Eyes Wide Shut-style masked orgy taking place.

Laura is symbolically taken to the occult elite's underworld where "Illuminati parties" happen ... and where she is likely used as a sex slave.

The masked man then undresses Laura who has an entranced look on her face, as if she was under the spell of the masked man.
The masked man then undresses Laura, who appears to be in a trance, as she is “released” in the party.

This scene represents, rather literally, Laura being used as a sex slave in elite parties.

Laura, however, realizes that something is terribly wrong and attempts to escape. She soon discovers that one cannot run away from one’s own mind.

When Laura attempts to run away, hands stick out the walls indicating that breaking programming results in trauma and torture for MK slaves.

When Laura finally reaches the end of the hallway, we briefly see the masked man who was waiting for her the entire time.

Back home, Laura realizes that she is safe nowhere, not even in her bedroom. The masked man magically appears in her room … and he is shirtless. Shirtless!

Nope.
Nope.
The masked man then grabs Laura and copulates with her in a rather forceful way, implying that the MK handler is abusing the slave to further trauma and programming.
He then grabs Laura and has his way with her. MK handlers sexually abuse their slaves to further trauma and programming.

The masked man then magically disappears (he is in and out of her head). Laura then sits there, completely zoned out.

The face of trauma.
The face of trauma.

Laura then lays in bed next to her “boyfriend”, who was apparently sleeping the entire time. As he turns his head towards her, an awful surprise awaits her.

It's the masked man.
It’s the masked man again.

The handler is everywhere in the MK slave’s mind. He controls her thoughts, her actions, and her entire reality. She cannot escape him because he has the key to her core personality.

The video ends with a symbolic image, one that is rather disturbing considering the true meaning of the video.

The doll from the beginning of the video. Her hair is messed up, her dress is torn (exposing a breast). One of her eyes is closed - the Illuminati one-eye sign.
It’s the same doll from the beginning of the video but her hair is messed up and her dress is torn (exposing a breast). One of her eyes is closed – the Illuminati one-eye sign.

The doll was clearly violated, the one-eye sign indicates who is behind this (the occult elite). The creepy frozen smile on the doll is rather revolting. So, yup, this is not simply a song about “nightlife”.

In Conclusion

Upon close inspection of the song and video, Self Control tells the story of a woman who loses her entire “self” at the hand of a handler. She is taken to elite parties and, when she attempts to escape, she gets abused by her handler, who she can never escape.

Although released at the dawn of the age of the music video, Self Control already contained all of the hallmarks of an Illuminati mind control video. More than thirty years later, the same storylines are all still there, from the symbolism to the twisted hidden meanings. Today, more than ever, we see young stars singing about their state of mind control over catchy melodies, complete with creepy videos celebrating the occult elite’s MK system.

In short, Self Control is considered to be “one of the defining songs of the 80s” … but it can also be considered to be one of the defining songs of MK culture.

I grew up with this song and remember always nagging my mind, the lyrics of this song thinking, “This songs lyrics are the answer to my life somehow.” I am an MK Ultra victim. The man I used to call Father was in the CIA before I was born. I had out of body experiences, I remember most of my trauma based ritual abuse, but most of the painful experiences are still blocked from my memory. I recently googled the line, “wearing white as your walking down the streets of my soul.” My google inquiry led me here. I appreciate that someone else sees the extreme symbolism and illuminati/satanic theme in this song. Back to that line in the song, I know what this line of the song actually means. Wearing white does relate to the precious, young age of your innocence, and these evil things start happening to you then, while you are innocent, they are “walking down the streets of your soul” leaving their imprints into your mind. And all the while, you grow up believing on the surface that you are still innocent, still a virgin even, and you are not, your whole life is a lie!… Read more »

Hello VC ~ I did point out the Illuminati fest that is 'Self Control' earlier this year in your forums:
http://vigilantcitizen.com/forumsThread-topics-yo

It would be worth your time to screengrab when Branigan first looks out her window… and check out the curtains. The lace curtain pattern around her has All Seeing Eyes all the way through it. No way can that be coincidental.

Wow. And I thought 'illuminati pop culture' only began in the 2000s, but it started much earlier.
Is it just me, or does 'Phantom of the Opera' seem to also contain some symbolic significance, with the masked man who lives in the shadows and seems to terrify Christine Daae into submission?

Why me?
Why me?

I totally agree, Madi. I’ve thought this myself. I used to listen to it but I don’t anymore. I think VC should do an article about this very popular musical. It’s not just the visuals but the melody in the music as well that draws people in.

OMG OMG This video is like the exact real story of "Thanks for the Memories" written by MK slave Brice Taylor. This book was so disturbing to read that I had to go to the prayer room in my house and pray before going to sleep. This book leaves the reader with SHOCK as to how evil this world could be and that satanists do exist and they torture their own children. The book is NOT for the weak minded, pleeeeeeease. The pdf of the book is free and can be got from website wikispooks Infact this singer Laura Branigan looks alot like Brice Taylor except that she has brown instead of blonde hair. Girls from multigenerational satanic families preferred blonde hair and blue eyed women because they were considered superior genetic features, race and could be easily mind controlled and have the mind split into multiple personalities. Brice Taylor was handled by Kissinger and Bob Hope and she sexually services presidents Reagan, All the Kennedy men, B Johnson, Bush, Clintons and singers such as Frank Sinatra, James Taylor, Neil Diamond etc and many actors -Sylvester Stallone, Dean Martin, Mickey Rooney also Prince Philip, Prince Charles etc. Brice was also… Read more »

We often hear about collapsing relationships in the entertainment business and badly behaving people. But a lot of that "bad boy" behavior is actually — whether all these power players know it or not — a system of mental abuse that's at the core of the MK mind control system. We see grown men manipulating young women (and men) in media and romantic lore and it's presented as some kind of sexual fantasy and it is a sexual adventure to dominant players and their submissives. It's the only kind of "romantic" relationships most of these power players engage in: Trained, groomed lovers. Think back to the famous case of the Stanford White murder and Harry Thaw: Evelyn Nesbit was groomed by White to be his mistress (many mistresses from history were groomed in this way and lots of what's done in MK mind control has been done in the conditioning of famous men's lovers throughout history) and was forced into submission by an abusive, wealthy husband. These distorted approaches to human intimacy are observed and ingrained in prominent people, until that's how they believe relationships and marriages are supposed to be. Like displayed in the video, where the handlers also… Read more »

This is not really about mind control, but about experiencing the presence of demons that tend to be more evident at night, or when a person is alone. It is more about "night terrors" and related phenomena, which are not always terrifying and can be extremely seductive and attractive, often in a sexual way. The presence of a demon is felt in many ways, and one of those ways is a sense of losing control of oneself, of feeling one's will overpowered by a stronger will, and of feeling like doing things that you would not otherwise want to do (or not as much). It can also be associated with a "creative" desire to express what you've felt and get other people to feel it too. This happens to people even without handlers or any connection to the Illuminati. It happened to people before their was television and before there were Masons. Plato wrote about it. It's described in the Bible. It's what shamans experience. The desert Fathers of the Orthodox Church in particular knew all about it, because they devoted their whole lives to separating themselves from the demons when there was no television and no mass media at… Read more »

Don\'t dismiss mind control...
Don\'t dismiss mind control...

Mind control entails the use of demons… dissociating minds and inserting demonic influences. The “ruling elite” use it widely. I have known many who have been subjected to this kind of treatment… with handlers. Read Cathy O’Brien’s book “TranceFormation of America”… and weep. Yes, it has been used by those who want to dominate and control throughout the ages. Circumcision is a satanic ritual, designed to dissociate a child. I’ve met many who were raised in “the cult” – Luciferian cult – that runs the world. “Mind control” is the use of demons on a very organized level. After WWII, the CIA imported many Nazis to the US. Nazis were into the occult. Some were trained by the CIA to train children to “service” adults sexually. They held satanic rituals with children and initiated them into “the cult”. If you want to read more about this on a very core level, see KerthBarker.com – he has written books about his own experience. A woman I met over 25 years ago told me her father forced her to kill her baby brother when she was just a little girl and that her father was on the covers of news magazines several… Read more »

I have to complete it, because as I see, you do not fully understand Illuminatis (New Agers) spirituality, but this is highly important to warn everyone, who reads it. "Laura then gets ready to go out. She is helped by weird people who appear out of nowhere". That are not weird people and not unfortunately not only in their mind. That are evil entities from the spiritual realm, that now are very fashionable and promoted all over the world in a plenty of crap books, sold in thousands. Those hidden satanists are calling them "spiritual guides" or "ascended masters", but some even use better manipulation to pool the wool over the eyes of people, being forced to go into spirituality (if you know on what it is based, you see it in most books, even of so-called expert ones – it is not readable for a person who does not know the rules of it and where the danger of that popular, false spirituality lies; it is often enough to start to believe in some few rules of it to fall in a trap of a danger for your soul), and call them "angels".

That's awesome, thanks VC. I'm glad to see some 80's videos on here. The old stuff from back then is all loaded with exactly the same symbolism as the new stuff but back then nobody knew what they were looking at. Anybody interested in old examples, look at the album cover for Def Leppard Hysteria. Check out videos like Motley Crue's Smokin In The Boys Room or their vid for Without You, I think those ones probably have more MK symbolism in them than even Gaga. It's all the same stuff and it's pretty creepy.

I had been reading the articles on this site for years and that's why I actually noticed the imagery in this video a couple of years ago when I was kicking back and having some beers while watching these vids on Youtube. Anybody who knows how to read these symbols and wants an interesting time, watch old 80's pop and especially hair metal. Thanks VC, could you do some more of these old ones?

WakeUpSheeple

You are absolutely correct. I have that Def Leppard Hysteria album. After learning about symbolism on this site, that is one creepy album.

Did they know? Many of them did for sure, and promoted it in their interviews as well as their lyrics. At their concerts they go far out their way as well to promote it. Motley is a good example actually.

On the new wave front, "Union of The Snake" by Duran Duran suggests kundalini energy? In the video, led by a reptilian (in a Speedo bikini), Simon LeBon takes an elevator into the center of the earth where random orphans run around Nick Rhodes playing some kind of occult researcher (with mega-moussed hair) examining a scroll, before he is led back to earth in a state of amnesia. Maybe not as dopey and meaningless as I assumed back in the 80s!

The arms reaching out of the walls is a reference to "Repulsion", directed by Roman Polanski. In it, Catherine Deneuve plays a mentally ill manicurist who slides into a schizoid state after withdrawing from society; she encounters many such scenes. Probably an early MK cinema delicacy.

Great article. I’m thinking now if Sandra’s Maria Magdalene is anti-MK song.
You take my love
You want my soul
I would be crazy to share your life
Why can’t you see what I’m
Sharpen the senses and drawn the knife
Hold me and you’ll understand

I’ll never be Maria Magdalena
(You’re a creature of the night)
Maria Magdalena
(you’re a victim of the fight)
(you need love)
Promised me delight
(You need love)

Why must I lie
Find any prize
When will you wake up and realize
I can’t surrender to you
Play for affection and
Win the prize
I know those party games too

I’ll never be Maria Magdalena
(You’re a creature of the night)
Maria Magdalena
(you’re a victim of the fight)
(you need love)
Promised me delight

I remember when music videos became popular on MTV (cable) in the eighties. But I don't remember this video. MTV occupies a masonic temple at their building in Toronto, to which they added the sign "masonic temple." Some call MTV "masonic tv." I find it interesting that this masonic owned MTV produced such a video, directed by the director of the Satanic occult movie, "The Exorcist." Albert Pike stated that the 33rd degree is where masons discover that their god is Lucifer. This video was produced in 1984, showing an " Eyes Wide Shut elite party, but that movie didn't come out until 1999. Remember Red Cloak's chair with the 33rd degree Babylonian double headed eagle symbol? And that creepy doll doing the masonic one eye of Horus thing. I believe the 33rd degree masons contributed money for the government's MKULTRA monarch program to produce mind control slaves for themselves. And they used taxpayers money and military intelligence to do so. This is why we see so many masonic mind control symbols in their music videos.

It's interesting that here we have Laura Branigan, haunted by her participation in this carnal netherworld, when about ten years later we get Madonna in "Justify My Love", kinking it up in black and white in a "Night Porter"-style hotel, eventually running from the scene, biting her finger and cackling like a witch, as if she has just completed some kind of rip-off and is fleeing the scene like a thief. I guess being too hardened to experience trauma is some kind of progress?

Yeah, and if you noticed, the cool wasn't made up (no make-up) in the beginning of the video. It's only at the end is the doll's dress torn, with a made up faced, smeared lipstick…with!

15 For this people’s heart has become calloused;
they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.

18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour.

21 Dear children, keep yourselves from idols.

Watching 80s videos now I see a lot of symbolism. Watch the video for Tina Turner's "Private Dancer."

There's no need to watch them, actually, I'm against watching or getting exposed to anything related to the occult, even if you're aware of it, you're going to get tainted.

I've completely cut my ties with TV, songs, or anything popular being advertised by the mass media, because I know it's corrupt. I only get my news from VC.

Watching for educational purposes is the KEY TO FREEDOM FROM MIND SLAVERY AND MIND CONTROL. There is no way VC ONLY can cover all exposures of this wicked industry. That is why the work to save people's minds and souls can not rest on VC's shoulders solely.

It is good that there is a section that allows other writers to share their critical analysis of all forms of entertainment and events on this blog. God help us all as we are gonna need divine protection as we delve into the core of these demonic programming and occult attacks on the world masses.

As someone who was a very, young child in the 80's, the imagery I vaguely remember from that period was, in hindsight, very much in line with occult Illuminati signaling.

I remember French Pierrot dolls, rainbows, the black and white checkered floors in tv set homes, tons of magic based cartoons ("The Last Unicorn", almost the entire, Saturday morning line-up), the harlequin masks everywhere, magic based and galactic or trans-human obsessed film franchises, the fashion was decadent and the makeup was painted. Anime from Japan mixed with Grimm's Fairy Tales and "The phantom of the Opera" (a tale about a svengali becoming jealous when the muse he controlled falls in love with someone else; so he abducts her and holds her in his lair) And this is only what I vaguely remember from my childhood.

It was like an Illumanti explosion happened in the arts and media in the 1980's. Then came the sunflowers, androgyny and "One World" atmosphere of the 90's.

Also the advent of role playing games – notably Dungeons & Dragons and all the related merchandise. Several killers cited D&D as their inspiration.

I think a lot of that stuff actually started in the 70's and carried on into the 80's, but I was a bit too young to see it all transpire from that time. All that 70's fantasy stuff.

"The Last Unicorn" is my fave film ever, I totally don't care if it has any symbolism in it, it's a masterpiece anyway!! 🙂

I remember loving this song, but even then I understood that there was something unsettling underneath the lyrics. Back then I read it as a song about a woman escaping into the night, knowing that there was trouble there (but that she felt safer there than during the day, for some unspoken reason). What she was escaping from was left unsaid, although the fact that the night felt more welcoming than the day stood out in my mind. Ended up haunting my imagination for years, up to a few years ago (assuming it has stopped…).

Didn't see the video until a couple years ago. VERY disturbing.

Very unsettling. The video always gave me an uneasy feeling. Before I was aware of the concept of mind control, I'd always assumed that the song was about drugs and the video a metaphor for drug addiction. I interpreted the man w/ the white mask as a symbol for cocaine; something that was constantly lurking around in the 80s, and something that would cause people like Laura to do anything for a fix – including degrading themselves. Thankfully I took it as a cautionary tale. However, knowing what I now know about the nature of the MK-heavy entertainment industry, and knowing that Laura Branigan herself succumbed to these demons, the song/video is even MORE disturbing, and straight-up sad. May she rest in peace.

When they made the song "Torture, they were no longer known as The Jackson 5; they were known as the Jacksons. They couldn't keep the Jackson 5 title when they left Motown in 1976, because Motown owned that name. So, when they joined Epic Records, they had to change their name to The Jacksons.

There are so many music videos with this type of symbology. I grew up in the 80's and would often question many of these videos, pondering their true meaning. Another video full of MK Ultra symbolism is Cyndi Lauper's True Colours. This was one of my favourite songs growing up, however if you look at it through new eyes, you can clearly see that she begins the song in a dissociative state, to that of a small child who is in a post abuse state. Throughout the video, the story is about a child who is living in a dissociate state of trauma and abuse.

Today Cyndi is in her 60's and still doing the rounds. We went to see her in concert a couple of years ago, and actually stood very close to the aisle that she sang and danced her way through. When looking closely, you can see and feel her continued dissociated state with a vacant stare. It's really sad as many of these artists are really quite naturally talented.

I once saw her open for another act, and it was embarrassing. She was practically like Sally Fields' bizarre "You like me, you really, really like me" speech. Very needy and clingy that was just icky. I've never liked her, I can't stand "kooky," so I didn't expect to enjoy it, but I didn't know I was going to feel like I needed a shower afterwards.

The 80's, prime time for MTV. Its videos hypnotizing us into loving the intoxicating nightlife. I just watched this video again after so many years. Its really creepy. You should do Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart".

She died kind of young by today's standards.
I was working in the late 90's at the Virgin Megastore in Union Square in New York City. I was a cashier and she came in one day and I rang her up, saw the name on her credit card. she had nice clear blue eyes but hadn't aged particularly well and had a haunted look and sort of needy way of looking at me, like desperation behind those eyes.

What would you have done if you knew then what you do now concerning mind control? I'd love to be in a position to recognize it in someone and help them, if I could.

IDK? From what I understand about monarch slaves is you don't want to force it on them and they have to remember, when their own minds will allow it. I've read that it can be very dangerous otherwise. I wonder what I would do if I had been in that position, knowing what I now know

That is very sad, I think she looks traumatized during the whole video and always did. I grew up in the 80's and remember the song. I believe she had claimed it was about a prostitute. But along with this article, I believe something much deeper than prostitution and I suppose some people would say that she is a performer. But she is not an actress. She looks terrifed and I never realized that the guy who directed "The Exorcist" directed this. So go figure the connection

The video is creepy indeed. The song itself was a cover of Italian pop star Rafa's song Self Control, and the lyrics do have another meaning apart from fitting into the Friedkin video illuminati narrative, namely being in love with someone who then has power over you, and loners who live by night and look for love away from tedious everyday society.

Franco De Vito

Hello, Ciao! I'm Italian, of the South, so I've investigated a little. Like Gloria is an adaptation from the original Italian song(by Umberto Tozzi), even Self Control is Italian, by the singer/songwriter Raf…
This singer, Raf, is famous here in Italy, but I have never seen this type of themes in his music… Plus he is from the town Margherita di Savoia, in my region in the south (Apulia). I have to say that people here grew up in a different way from lot of americans, especially in the 60's and 70's… So it would result strange to me that Raf wrote the lyrics for the song thinking about MK ultra, etc… Because I don't imagine Raf being in contact with this kind of things in Apulia in the 60's/70's…
Well… you know what? I checked and in fact the lyrics are not from Raf, but from an American! His name should be Steve Piccolo… He is from New Hampshire, and he studied at the New York University… Maybe he has this MK themes in other works of him………? CIAO!!!

Sheh

The name was Raf, actually, not Rafa. In Germany, they forced him to change it to Raff, supposedly to avoid associations with RAF i.e. Rote Armee Faktion a.k.a the Baader-Meinhof terrorist group.

Something I would say.
I mean really what the hell secret evil people/ spirits who ran the world in the eighties?
I know you were just starting out with symbolism in music videos, but hold yourself to a higher standard AT ALL TIMES.
If you have the balls to be evil, brainwash the world, kill innocent people, depopulate the world, kill God, etc., then you should do better than a cheesey shirtless guy standing in front of a curtain with an eyes wide shut mask wearing red gloves EVEN IN THE 80's.
Smh.
