glee covers david bowie’s ‘fashion’

The third season of Glee may not premiere until September 20th and Glee the 3D may be on it’s way out of the box office, but Gleeks now have something new to obsess over until then. The cast of Glee (definitely the cast and not the characters they play…watch the video to understand that one) recorded this music video for the Fashion’s Night Out event. Aside from re-watching the Britney episode a few times, this may be the thing that gets me thoroughly excited for the new season.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

pop up video respawn

I would like to start by saying that I have NEVER been a fan of sitting down and just watching music videos for hours on end. I get tired of seeing the same stories played out by different actors/artists. Is it weird that I watch videos for the story instead of the actual music? But anyway, Pop-Up Video was the only time I could really sit and watch every single second of every video no matter if I liked the artist/song or not. I was (not so) force-fed information about the production of the video, the band’s reluctance to drink tap water, or just random “vital information for my everyday life” – thanks Lori Beth Denberg! A kid with ADD couldn’t dream of a better show!

I remember watching and remembering some of the quirky tidbits from certain videos and waiting to watch the regular video to play again with people that I knew who weren’t as cool as me didn’t watch the show so I could blow their minds off when I told them all this random information. Now that I think about it, that sounds a tad annoying…whatever. But there is NO reason I should know that Rembrandts video for “I’ll Be There For You” was filmed exactly 452 years after the astronomer Copernicus’ death. Or that “Fab” from the group Milli Vanilli began his dancing career after a tragic trampoline accident excluded him from sports. Like why did I need that?! But I appreciated every bit of it.

Would those eyes lie to you?

My love for the gem that was Pop-Up Video had gone so deep that, late last year, myself and a peer on this blog – that would be “nicolewritenow” – were in the preliminary stages of making our own version of the hit show to share with you beautiful people. And by “preliminary” I mean we said we would do it and talked about how awesome it would be. But VH1 stole our idea of their original idea right from under us earlier this year.

Even though I feel somewhat cheated that “big brother” beat us to the comeback, I’m excited to learn way more information than I need to about artists I really don’t care about. And with the new foray into the Hip-Hop and Rap genres I’m sure the show will bring in a more diverse audience. With VH1 signing up for 60 30-minute episodes this could be the best thing for the network since: A) Flavor of Love, B) Rock of Love, C) New York Goes to Work, D) Brooke Knows Best, or E) Pop-Up Video was last on the air. I hope that answer is obvious enough…
