Remember The Time: Boogie Your Wonderland

Monday, February 8, 2010


Nearly five minutes of surefire happiness. If you don't even crack a smile, you aren't human, and you are expelled from my Kingdom of Fun. As I'm still on a crusade to end the mediocrity of the recent music video output, I had to wipe off the dust of Earth, Wind & Fire's video for 1979 classic, "Boogie Wonderland" and take a look at how even during the music video's early dinosaur days, the video is better than anything put out in the last three years. Why? Let me count the ways:

  1. The track is probably one of the finest Disco slices from that era. If you don't dance to this, you fail.
  2. The Emotions whiz on in in these rainbow glitter capes
  3. Those metallic outfits EW&F are sporting 
  4. It's EW&F...what is not to like? 

To also point out, it's quite a simple video, well save for those metallic bodysuits EW&F are decked out in and the dancing around everyone is doing, but really, no special effects, no gimmicks, just a two groups performing for an audience that is clearly not there...and having a ball doing it.
