Almost Brit Pop Music Video Playlist March 3, 2010

I say almost as I have added a Kylie Minogue video in there. She is Australian, but she is fairly popular in the UK. Anyway, on with the playlist.

Kylie Minogue – Wow
La Roux – I’m Not Your Toy
Pixie Lott – Gravity
VV Brown – Shark in the Water
Noisettes – Don’t Upset the Rhythm (Go Baby Go)

The Kylie Minogue video is what you would expect from her, dancing, lights and plenty of visuals. I’ll let Wikipedia explain a little better.

The video features Minogue in dancing in a futuristic nightclub surrounded by dancers in alien outfits.

I really did not notice the alien outfits to be honest, as my eyes are generally on Kylie most of the time! And I have only watched it a handful of times at most.

The La Roux track, “I’m Not Your Toy” is one that will definitely get you feet busy, and perhaps nodding along. The video features her singing in front of a pool with a fair number of people around it. The video cuts to the people a fair amount as they are grooving to the song also as if there is something going on with them. All the while Elly is singing the song. Later, Elly is seated in an elaborate chair, and she is also in the pool. The video ends with her submerging into the pool, funky hair and all!

The Pixie Lott song, “Gravity”, is one I easily could have mistaken for Jordin Sparks, as it is a poppy R&B track. The video is mostly her in a black tutu, but there is also a couple dancers in the background on certain scenes. She does have a couple of other outfits in the video, a black “burlesque inspired outfit”, and in a red catsuit performing an aerial silk routine. The latter two outfits were added by an anonymous Wikipedia user. I do not know clothing too well, however I probably would not have used the term burlesque.

VV Brown’s “Shark in the Water” is the first time I really heard and saw her. The video is basically her singing the song while telling a story. It is a good poppy track.

Lastly, Noisettes with “Don’t Upset the Rhythm (Go Baby Go)”. It is the second single from their second album, Wild Young Hearts. I only really started getting into them recently. Wild Young Hearts is quite a good album.

The video is a fair amount fantasy, with mostly lead singer and bassist, Shingai Shoniwa. The other band members do pop up here and there. The video also features a fair amount of accompanying visuals.
