Oh, Just Play the Frickin' Video, For God's Sake!
Pretty ridiculous with the kid with the top hat and the dancing- it's like: who is this video trying to appeal to!?! Maybe Michael Jackson would like it. It's overly fake when she turns the classical pianist into a Rock star, hey at least that guy seems to dance pretty well- is that him breakdancing around 2:30? Too bad there's not more breakdancing these days- that stuff is impressive.
There's no way to know what could possibly be the meaning of the football sequence, besides applauding some random nobody in a football outfit who just beat up some other random nobody for no apparent reason.
The song (from "Footloose") is, well, CHEESY. No other words can really describe it. I will say it's fun, catchy, the bass is cool, and it's also completely irritating upon the third listen. But ultimately, it's just CHEESY. It could ALMOST be mistaken for 80's soul (maybe because Deniece is, um, black?), but this is 80's American soundtrack material at its most materialistic, capitalistic and CHEESIEST. Only thing missing is the macaroni.
