Charley says WEEK! 2010.23

June 13, 2010

For some people Vanessa Carlton will always be the ‘A Thousand Miles‘ girl, but there’s more to her than driving a piano through the country.

One of my favourite songs of hers is the lead single to her sophomore album ‘Harmonium‘. Actually, ‘White Houses‘ is probably one of my favourite songs in general. Ever.

While the song tells a clear story, the video is simply Vanessa playing the piano while a second Vanessa is dancing in the same room. At first I felt disappointed by it, but then I figured that this leaves you with the freedom to picture your own faces and settings to the words. In a way, it makes the video more specific than any literal interpretation could have ever been.

White Houses‘ is one of those special songs that can make you nostalgic and yet strangely sad at the same time.

It’s beautiful.

Charley says VIDEO! Sylver – Turn The Tide 2010

June 9, 2010

Here are ten points of interest on the new Sylver video.
1) It’s for a 2010 version of their breakthrough hit ‘Turn The Tide‘.
2) It looks very nice.
3) It was shot at Strantwerpen, a city beach club which is put up in the middle of Antwerp for the summer.
4) Silvy’s hair is amazing.
5) I want everyone’s sunglasses.
6) This must be one of the first, if not the first, Flemish music video to blatantly have product placement.
7) I spot at least two Belgian finalists of So You Think You Can Dance 2009.
8 ) One of them is Michael Iongbloed, who came third. He’s the guy with the open shirt about 48 seconds into the video.
9) The other one is Kris Loix, who got voted off just before the final. He is the one drinking around the 2 minutes 52 mark. You may have also seen him as one of the dancers for Sandrine’s 2008 Eurosong entry.
10) Is it just me or does anyone else feel like having a bottle of Perrier?
