just a pop record, pure and simple and like all the other crap that poses as music, its got no  longevity or influence...is it that the guy's a northern soul lover, as he's used a   formulae backdrop. in defense of the video, at least its shot at a legible speed unlike 99% of todays product which ought to carry a flashing images warning. at least it involves REAL DANCING, not bloody beyonce and every other one of her ilk who feel it is necessary to do aerobics shoots that have precisely FUCK ALL to do with dancing...WHEN will these people learn?.

You said no? Strange decision to deny them work & possibly money.
As for the record, just another pop song jumping on what at the moment is a fashionable bandwagon.

Shame that folks think they have to be involved and dance "Northern" to this pop tune.15 minutes of fame and all that.

Can't stand the fake accent either,hip or what.?  :lol:

Good choice Paul lol

 

My seven year old likes it: "Is that where you go Dad?" Au contraire: this one features some kids prancing about reasonably rhythmically then an old geezer dancing like me dad hoves into view. Its the other way round as a rule.

 

I've heard worse pop records btw.

I don't know if anyone watched it right through but wasn't expecting that ending! :elvis:  Is it the new Green Cross Code ad for youth of today? If so, I think I prefer the ones from 70's.

It just a pop record, but not a bad one.

I like that Chicago House beat & soulful tennor sax, good pop I'd say.

Bandwagon video, nothing to do with Northern really, but so what?

We should get ready for a wave of this type of thing if Elaine Constantines movie really takes off.

Would it be such a bad for the continuity of the whole scene if it does, its just a generation away from extinction as it is.

Some ageing old duffer in a leather 'mac' and furrowed brow should have burst in there like Jesus in the temple. Thou hast turned the house of my Father into a casa de putas!

Can you spot how many of those in the vid you helped train to dance? Kind of ironic isn't it :-)

I hope not, I've been one of the 'youngsters' on the scene for years.......and I'm waiting to have 'all' of the records! :D 

 

All the best,

 

Len :thumbsup: 

 

P.s - If this film takes any longer, the people in it will be too old to play their parts! :lol:

Not a strange decision at all. Personally, i don't know any dancers who would want to do this type of pap! If money is their only criteria then these type of things would be no good. They usually offer 'fame and experience' and some sub-standard food. If i know a project is utter s--te i will definitely not pass on anyones details. I knew this was just that and, for me anyway, seeing the end result proves it.

Recently a channel 4 cookery programme contacted me wanting me to 'choreograph' 3 Northern soul dancers in a 30 second fun routine, saying they knew it was usually done alone, but on this occasion they thought it would be fun for them to do a routine. I said 'no'. I don't see it as taking work from people rather than ignoring yuppie producers request to exploit the dancers and the scene. Also, there are  always dancers who are willing to do this type of thing and dance to and for anything, so someone gets the unpaid work and exposure in the end. I just feel better not having helped in the process.

 

cheers

Redneck noise! Why would he attempt to align this dross with an NS spin? Billion miles even from blue eyed soul and matey 'feeling' the lyrics like it's Sam Dees!  :lol:

I can spot None.

I didn't train anyone to dance either. I co-ordinated a monthly dance club where people came and shared a good time, music and experience much the same as we did , or i did, back in the mid 70's.

I think your using the word 'ironic' in the Alanis Morrissette way which is ironic, given that you were attempting to be ironic...   :hatsoff2:  :thumbsup:
