Beyonce, meh!

Okay, I know I’m digging up old dirt, but for the first time today I watched the video for Beyonce’s single “Single Ladies.” I don't listen to her stuff normally, so I haven't seen the video until today.

And honestly, what is the big deal about it? I mean it’s a very mediocre video. There are some cool light and color changes, but all the choreography in it is just not very good. I felt a lot of it didn't fit the song well at all.

I love minimalism, but this is a different story.

QATFYG: What is the big deal about Beyonce and her video?

Beyonce : Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)

  1. I watched the video for the first time just last week... and I felt the same way. Not that great. And the song is just... eh. As far as I can tell, the only reason it won any awards is because it lacks the "bling" that is typically featured in so many videos in that genre...

  2. IS THIS A JOKE? The song is absurdly catchy, dances are sexy and mega (stolen or not.)

    I just... I just don't know what else to day.

    I have to disagree. I don't find the dances very sexy. overall i didn't like most of the dance moves. u kno there are some sexy people in the vid of course.

    But it's weird saying this as a straight man, but Beyonce has the worst taste when it comes to shoes. Anybody else see the vid for crazy in love? mmmmmmmmhmmmmmmmmmmm

  4. Not to beat a dead horse, but I think Kanye said it best when he belligerently shouted: "BEYONCE HAS MADE ONE OF THE GREATEST VIDEOS OF ALL TIME... OF ALL TIME!"

  5. that's what got me to watch the video. thanks kanye, you silly prick.
    i finally got around to it yesterday, and i wanted to see what the big deal was....and i can't see it. all i liked was how they used simple black and white colors effectively. the rest of it was just mildly artistic. NOT TO MENTION THE SHOES!!

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
