Saw Lady Gaga's Paparazzi video clip today. I keep relating my personal experiences to other people's and looking at this clip and complexity and the uniqueness of the visuals and costuming i have to guess she did Advanced or Specialist English at School :lol: Only someone with a mind in the world of fantasys, bizarre ideas of representation and a versatile mind frame could create such a video!

The relation between me and the other people is me comparing what current studies to those around me and those we see on tv, i try to guess and determine the type of person they were at school and what subjects they did to understand how they got where they are...might sound wierd or like i don't have a life but anywho. :lol:

]Jennifer Lopez] - ]Waiting For Tonight] (1999) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvNjtjLSobM

What strikes me most about this clip, apart from how hot Lopez was at the time, was the use of sunlight/lighting in this vid. I love the setting sun shining through the city skyline and the use of tropical elements like the forest and palm leaves and watefall later, combinined with the dance party scenes and orange lighting on Lopez. Watching it on Youtube again does not really do it justice, as when I recall it on TV, on a bigger screen in high quality, you get more than cinematic feel to it I guess. It was another of those Millenium tunes and you see the clock ticking over reference in the vid.

]Iio] - ]Rapture] (2002) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbaWdyDipcw

I like the Blade Runner-esque backdrop and Nadia Ali's projected hologram over it.

]All Saints] - ]Pure Shores] (2000) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_vEJpgRhZQ

Features footage from the Leo Di Caprio film, 'The Beach,' with the song part of the film's soundtrack ofcourse. The song was a major hit at the time, #1 and plenty of radio airplay this decade, ever since. I like the use of the Beach clips and the group's footage kind of interwoven between that, including the nice use of the nightcam and performing in a setting evoking the film. The fim footage with the young backpackers in the tropical setting, beach, sea and the song really compliment each other well. While Di Caprio's much anticipated film follow up to his Titanic role, was a moderate success, this song was by far the biggest thing, most successful thing, related to the movie, which can often happen with hit songs from film soundtracks.

]Paul Oakenfold] - ]Southern Sun] (2002) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zu6dC8UGh4

Really like this one, kind of surreal, and has a cool kind of 2001: A Space Odyssey thing going on, at the end.

The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony (1998) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zx3m4e45bTo

The video clip is as famous as the song, if not more so. One of the most well known Music Videos of the 90s.

That's the video for "S&M". The current No.1 song in the country :roll:

I watched it, it's mostly your standard femdom/male sub scenario which seems to be most of what's represented in mainstream culture as BDSM. I think people are afraid of the male dom/femsub thing (too suggestive of abuse maybe?) but truth be told THAT is what is most common in that lifestyle :)

She does look good in bondage though :<|

Just out of curiosity, is this video being played on the music shows? Because Youtube has a disclaimer that you have to be over 18 to watch it :roll:
The power of submission lies not in the ability to kneel before another, to give over one's body or in the wearing of a collar.
The power of submission can be found only in the heart of one who gives her love to another freely knowing what joy and pain will come of it - Roguer
