Music video

The music video for "Stuck with You" was filmed in the Bahamas and features Keely Shaye Smith. The island that Lewis and Smith wind up on is a small island about ten miles from Paradise Island in Nassau. The video was filmed on land, on water, underwater and from the air. The band, the crew and all the extras used in the island barbecue scene had to stay on a barge moored off the island so that they wouldn't be seen.

The video was directed by Edd Griles, who had previously directed the band's video for "The Heart of Rock & Roll" as well as Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" and "Time After Time".
