Kate Moss In George Michael’s White Light Video. Don’t Expect It To Make Sense!

  • Pin it

The famous George Michael White Light video with Kate Moss we talked about just landed! And, guess what! Everybody was expecting to make some kind of (philosophical) sense out of it. Well, don’t! (duh!) it’s about the “white light” (the one at the end of the tunnel etcetera…) and, besides Kate Moss’s hair blowing in the wind I think I saw Godfrey Gao, a Zebra and the usual George Michael themes (policemen, undressed people dancing, urban architecture / interior style etcetera). Really philosophical indeed!

Me neither. As much as I love George and Kate….yawn…..noticed how hard it is to photoshop/airbrush Kate in a video? And I don’t say this to be mean or snarly: because this got to stop!!

Plus I fail to understand why singing about being alive while the model wears the skin of a dead creature? Epic fail George. But glad he’s still alive :)

Plus one here… from a musician who once wrote /sang Careless Whispers this is a big deception. The lyrics are plain and childish and the rythm is annoying / too commercial/ too easy to catch…
I don´t know how many cliches I found there, but the white dove versus the black crow was a bit too much for me, puh-leezzzz.

#Riana and #ana: I watched it and when it started I was like “whaaaa? what is this? Club music? By George Michael?!” then I allowed to rest and then it came to me: girls? We went to see the new Spiderman movie! And we just realized that the first Spiderman was made 10 years ago! 10 years? How is that possible?

(I’ll try to elaborate that some other day – that as in the new Spider-man movie)

Now – when was Careless Whispers? 1984! We’re too young for our age, girls! ;)

What? I posted Wham! very recently on my FB page hahaha….at least that was fun and made me smile…..;)

I think ‘Older’ was George’s last really great album. I listened twice today watching this video. A classic. A superb album.
And I still love Careless Whisper and the year 1984….:)

OMG, the year 1984 is 28 years ago! So what’s 10 years then Kpriss ;)

I loved Older! One of my favorite albums ever!

yep. what’s 10 years? let’s drink to that! ;)

I feel like a granny now :-(

#7 kpriss on 07.18.12 at 3:06 pm

no, seriously? that’s not good music! Why feel bad for bad music? Hell to the no! I feel good! for I know GOOD music! And I will teach my children what good music means! Would you feel good with me?

Of course sweetie! Found a alternative version/video of Careless Whisper I need to share with you girls. I’d never saw or heard this one before. <3

First comment I read was: "get off youtube, mom"

I agree with both of you girls…but sometimes I feel like : “well, times changed and people want new (different) things ,perhaps you ,Ana ,are getting old and grumpy?”.
And then I remember things like Eurythmics, Tears for Fears, Simply Red, Simple Minds,Sting, Bruce…
The music was soooooo good, and always had a message . Artists were trying make people THINK, not just accepting garbage after garbage.
Well, I have forbidden Rihana to be listen at home but it doesn´t help much. It is more like a personal manifesto against the industry.
oh, sorry, I digress…

whoa, #Riana! That one was really steamy, by 80s standards! ;)

#Ana? You can feel better, we have a vast list of “not airing in this house!” (including Rihanna, Lady Gaga, basically anything you can hear on a contemporary top 100 or so – umm.. Bieber is censored too ;) ). I sometimes ask myself if I’m doing the right thing – after all, we’re imposing on the kids. But I feel like preventing their brains from being polluted. Corrupted.

I find it hard to believe that after they’ve being listening to G’n’R, ACDC (random but brilliant examples) or indie / folk / alternative music (which always carries a message, like you said), they could ever settle for “Umbrella…ella…ellaaaaa”.

I’m definitely getting older, but I like to think of it as “wiser” too. More patient and insightful. So, sisters’n’grumpiness forever?

Do you want some comfort about kids and their taste? I loved to visit a rock forum and so now and then I just read in there. Let me assure you that there are lots of young people, still kids sometimes, out there whom all love the old music!! How they bash the new fabricated much harsher and in stronger language than we do! This week they honoured Deep Purple’s Jon Lord (71) who passed away on cancer. He could have been their grandpa!! Or great-grandpa? They did pay tribute to a man like that. They think, just as I do, that the real music died in the late’90’s. (Not all of it..;)..) They feel are born too late. They are GN’R or Tori Amos. They love bands like Pearl Jam, Soundgarden but also Pink Floyd etc. Just to name some from the ’60’s until the ’90’s. And they now everything about music. It’s amazing.

And speaking of garbage what is also a great band; some weeks ago I been to Garbage and Pearl Jam and I can tell you that there were many younger people than me. Garbage, the guys are in their 50’s and Shirley a 40-something, rocking, funny, still sexier then ever without trying were awesome. But Pearl Jam, speaking of music with a message, was overwhelmingly good. No older pathetic rockers here. I saw them the first time live in 1992. Their album Ten has become twenty but oh my, they were still alive!! And so was I singing along. I almost made me cry to sing that song along….ah, I also digress but I always do hahaha…..

OMG…..that’s a long piece….and I forgot words and what a terrible grammar for English readers….oops…..

#13 kpriss on 07.19.12 at 7:05 am

it’s the passionate’s grammar! I’m all too familiar with it when I re – read myself – there’s also another thing called the syntax of the passionate writer. It just goes sideways! And I’m loving it! (I also love your long comments!) :*

#14 Riana on 07.19.12 at 9:08 am

It’s definitely passion. And it’s Neo-Dutch English. We Dutch think our English is perfect as I heard of late lol! We make up words and sentences that sound good to us. You should hear me in German, French or Spanish. I even have tried Greek and some Arabic. And in foreign countries it’s often so much appreciated that they try to help out. In France especially on the countryside. I wish the world was always like that….

Thanks for the fun girls :* :*
