Music Video of the Day: Spice Up Your Life by Spice Girls (1997, dir by Marcus Nispel)

Are you tired?

Are you bored?

Are you stuck in a go-no where life?

Are you living in a dystopian future that was apparently inspired by Blade Runner?

Well, don’t worry.  Spice Girls are here!

One thing that I like about the Spice Girls is that you could always sing along to their songs.  The other thing I like about them is that, regardless of how simple their music may have been, their music videos were almost always ludicrously overproduced.  That’s the case here, where Spice Up Your Life is transformed into an anthem for revolution.

Spice Up Your Life was directed by Marcus Nispel, who has subsequently directed a few features film that I didn’t care much for.


Music Video Of The Day: Dance Again by Selena Gomez (2020, dir by ????)

For the record, even under lockdown, I’m still dancing.

Of course,  now, I have to either go do it in the backyard or clear some space in the living room.  But that’s okay.  It’s not important where you dance.  Instead, it’s just important that you do it.


Music Video Of The Day: Fiori di Chernobyl by Mr. Rain (2020, dir by Enea Colombi)

Today’s music video of the day comes to use from Italy.

Don’t ask me to explain what all is happening in the video.  I’ll just say that it I appreciate the ominous atmopshere and the feeling of doom the permeates nearly every minute of this video.  This is a video to haunt your dreams.
