In case you neglected your Beyoncé music video feed this holiday weekend, her unintentionally amusing film noir-themed "Dance for You" video leaked and was then officially released. Show and tell.
Beyonce, music, music videos, film noir, subtlety
I love me some Beyonce, but I feel like one out of every three of her songs has a part about dipping, dropping, twerking and/or popping it (check on me tonight). In a dance song, sure. But doesn't really sound awesome in a sexy song.
Also, the unintentionally funny part is from 3:07-3:09, right? That's where I laughed.
@applestoapples there is a top 40 song right now where the guy talks about how he is going to "get it in" which, in the upbeat dancey part of the song, I guess it works.
but there's also a part where he croons "giiiiiiiirl, i'm geeeetttting it innnnnnnnnnn" and it's supposed to be all romantic and shit? I just don't know how anybody could keep a straight face singing that.
Astoundingly, neither the singer nor the title of the song stood out enough for me to remember them.
@applestoapples Is this where I can complain about that super-awkward Go Lover song? Because seriously.
@applestoapples are you talking about Body 2 Body? That name definitely stood out when I heard the song.
@phenylalanine That song ruins me. I just can't. It's so utterly weird and stupid. Although the Lil Wayne line about brainstorming is legitimately kind of clever.
I have nothing other than OMG HAIRPIN PLEASE DON'T EVER LEAVE ME FOR FOUR AND A HALF DAYS EVER AGAIN OMG
@leopardface Here in Canada it was SO HARD. I suffered.
@The Lady of Shalott I KNOW. I had to go back to tumblr. It was awful.
I met her in the hall ... she tried to sit in my lap while I was standing up.
Oh Bey. You've lost me. The only thing I want "swirling on my body" is soft serve.
I would have been happy if the entire video had been Beyonce slinking around the office. I was sort of like, Shhhh, let's rewind this again.
"I wanna put my body on your body" is my new pick up line
Can you say "the end" if something didn't have any kind of actual narrative? I mean...I suppose it WAS the end.
@carogriffin I think all that working with Lady Gaga may have Given Her Notions.
It might have been germane to wear a dress which covers your ladyparts for this occasion, Ms Knowles. Just saying.
There's a really good Private Dick joke somewhere in here but I can't seem to get my hands around it.
(that's what she said)
(maybe that was the joke)
@ratchet I feel like maybe she wasn't really talking about dancing.
I at least wanted to see the boy strip.
I was hoping this would be more like Kate Bush's video for "Hounds of Love."
Yeah, mostly I just like to think that the way she danced at about 4:29 or so is how she really dances when she doesn't have someone choreographing her every move. Not that that's a bad thing. That's pretty much how I look dancing too. But the song. The lyrics. I feel dumber for having heard them. :-/
I like Beyonce. She looks gorgeous here. But. The dance moves were kind of a waste of beautiful cinematography.
Extra credit to the following:
1) Beyonce's bra is achieving feats of architectural fancy.
2) Beyonce's hair has endured so much. So very, very much.
3) Beyonce's Pilates instructor deserves a raise because if I did that kind of popping and neck-snapping my time in bed with my lover would be spent having him readjust the ice pack behind my shoulder blades and tipping a spoonful of soup into my mouth.
Ugghhh Beyyy - What are you doing??? That was horrible!!
"All them other chicks are superficial"
- Bey! What happened to "Gurlz rool the wrrrld"???
