A new recurring series for you: I was wrong. I’ve been somewhat troubled since shortly after my Integrity of Top of the Pops blog, back on 9 May. The thing is while it’s true that Outkast’s Roses video is partly based upon Greece, there are clear and definite references to West Side Story. Furthermore, I really should have seen this as it’s an extension of the Speakerboxx/The Love Below thing Outkast have got going on at the moment.
Speakerboxx/The Love Below is an odd project; not so much a double album as two solo albums stuck in the same box. Artistic differences are a classic reason for a split, but these two CDs only prove how complementary Andre and Bog Boi are – ying and yang says the Amazon review. Anyway, Roses clearly has the Love Below gang facing off the Speakerboxx boys (albeit with the now red Pink Ladies looking on). I’ve mentioned before how pop music’s tops at the moment. If you doubt that, look no further than Speakerboxx/The Love Below.
While on TOTP, its worth mentioning the amazing similarity between Kylie Minogue and Rachel Stevens’ choreography of late. Kylie’s made the odd good record in the past, but is now in a most irritating phase. But not as irritating as Rachel Stevens. Anyway, Kylie’s routine for Chocolate on this week’s TOTP, was almost identical to Steven’s routine for the truly dreadful Some Girls the week before. Everything Stevens does is incredibly catchy and doesn’t that make you hate her all the more?
