Music videos have come a LONG way since this gem was released in 1966, but to my standards, this blast from the past has all the major components to make a modern day smash hit video shake it it’s… boots (please forgive me for the puns… I have a disease…).
Wardrobe: on point. Hair and Make Up: stunning. Set design (use of plywood steps and flags): minimalistic, yet well utilized. Choreography and Dance: I’m almost speechless… almost…
Firstly, I LIVE for a fierce step touch. Add a subtle shimmy and a sensible 45 degree leg graze for the artist, and I’m in music video heaven. Strong start Nancy. The first chorus ensamble choreography could be tightened up a bit… but what the ladies lack in cleanliness, they make up for with flare and flooreography in the second verse. From box step to peppermint twist, and of course a stampede of ponies, this video truly has it ALL….
…except for a fair contract I would assume.
How does this video hold up to YOUR music video standards? Could Nancy’s boots battle Beyonce’s?
