OK – I’ve started off the summer video chart, since summer is well and truely here at last. Two of the videos in the chart feature “puppets” – don’t know the reason for this sudden fascination in puppets, but still.
Our first puppet vid is by Yomanda – You’re Free – a cover of Ultra Nate’s track in the mid-90’s. This one features a doll that goes out clubbing and hooks up with these other dolls. Quite funny – but a great choon! Next up is Tiga – Hot In Herre. I saw this track being played to death on MTV Dance, so I’m kind of addicted to it. It’s a cover of Nelly’s Hot In Herre but it’s got a very different vibe to it – and again it features a puppet dancing around.
Telepopmusik – Breathe tops the chart ‘cos it’s just an awesome summer track – it reminds me of lying by the pool soaking up the sun – just like the people in this video.
I’m totally into Dannii – Don’t Wanna Lose This Groove right now – again I kept hearing it on UK radio. It samples Madonna’s Get Into The Groove – but it’s just a hot track!
Babes and powertools! What an awesome combination for a video! Benny Benassi – Satisfaction seems to be big on both sides of the Atlantic right now – this video features some babes in Bikini’s showing off power tools. Can’t argue with that!
I’ve always been a fan of Auroa, although I’m not sure that their attempts to move away from dance, and more to the accoustic scene was that great a decision. Still, Aurora – Sleeping Satellite is a cool track – a cover of Tasmin Archer’s song from the early 90’s.
Finally, there’s Moloko – Forever More. This isn’t my fave mix of the track, but you’ll still get the general idea.
