After Angela saw my recent post about the eclipse from 20 years ago, she showed me this video, which must be one of the most bizarre music videos I’ve ever seen:
The acting is quite horrible, and even if you don’t pay attention to the meaning of the lyrics (think Shakira), it’s still very difficult not to get distracted by the cheesy, over-the-top, melodramatic acting. Especially around 1:30, when an eclipse starts.
And then, around 2:35, we get what we’ve all been waiting for: The ladies stop yell-singing at each other about the brunette’s lost love, and they stop the entire dramatic narrative of the video to put on Ray Charles sunglasses, look at the eclipse, and continue singing about love.
I’ve said something similar to this phrase before, but if you don’t watch this video, you’re truly missing something. If you do watch this video, your life will be a little bit more complete. Check it out! In short, this about sums up my thoughts on this music video:
Thanks for reading, and have a good one!
