Here are some moving pictures depicting Paris Hilton making a pop video on a beach. Please excuse the terrifying fratboy arrows which appear halfway through.
Ten Amazing Pop Videos On Beaches
1. Glenn Medeiros' 'Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You'. Didn't that one have a horse in it or something? It's probably on YouTube.
2. Keane's 'Atlantic', although that was a bit moody and clearly far too packed with hidden meaning for us to ever comprehend.
3. 'Light Of My Life' by Louise, whose very-nearly-likeable new material is listenable-to here and whose beach video was notable because the sand on the beach was BLACK. Ooh — variation on theme.
4. 'Pure Shores' by All Saints, or it might have been another All Saints song because frankly they all blurred into one and we can only remember about four of them anyway.
5. '5678' by Steps, in which H and Lee ride around on 'quad bikes' and actually look quite manly 'n' hunksome, although they get points knocked off for not doing any 'writhing in the surf'.
6. Christina Aguilera's 'Genie In A Bottle'. Perhaps the bottle in question is one of those bottles you get on the Isle Of Wight where you fill them with different coloured sands for an attractive ornament. We will ask Christina this when she is next round for tea.
7. 'Pray' by Take That — a prompt for young men of the 1990s to 'feel a bit funny' and to 'ask themselves some difficult questions'.
8. 'Domino Dancing' by the Pet Shop Boys, with points added on for the presence of above-mentioned surf-writhe action.
9. Westlife's 'If I Let You Go', in which Nurding's Black Sand reappeared, making it the 'Berwick Street market' of coastal pop video 'assets'.
10. Tina Cousins' 'Pretty Young Thing' (see 'Apropos Of Nothing' post below for a Friday afternoon spooksome coincidence).
We're quite liking the Ace Of Basetacular sound of Paris' single, although these days anything which doesn't try to sound like Kelly Clarkson, isn't labouring under the misapprehension that it is 'urban' and has a BPM higher than 7 is pretty much guaranteed a nod of approval, to be honest.
