More Smoke On Camera Six

I've only recently discovered Pickard Of The Pops, a weekly column on the Guardian website in which promotional music videos of the popular genre are dissected and analysed like an unsuspecting frog in an O-level Biology practical. Laid bare, scene by scene, they really are exposed as either (a) pompous heap of overblown pretentious tosh, (b) feeble excuse for pre-watershed semi-nudity or (c) shoe-string budget gibberish made by orang-utangs on uppers. My choices, in the aforementioned categories, are:

(a) I Don't Love You
(b) Umbrella
(c) Nuff Buzzin

Enjoy (or something)...

  1. absolutely love it

    not quite what you'd expect from the newspaper in question, but that is the beauty of "online".

    I remember listening to a radio breakdown of "popular" songs on BBC World Service when serving my time as an English Teacher in Bulgaria in 1994. The most annoying was a review of Duran Duran's comeback single ... don't recall the title ... but it almost made me chuck the radio out the window.
