COMMENT: The basic dance routine is not bad but is spoiled by too many overlays of midrifs and beads that makes for a very confusing and messy picture. The only time this works is for Rosie's solo. Had the overlays been reined in a little and been restricted to the girls faces I think this could have turned out to have been a half decent routine. I'm not going to criticise the lack of light as Flick obviously wanted the darkness and red light to go with the song. It's also a shame that we didn't get to see what would have been a much sharper BBC 4 repeat!
CHAMPAGNE: Rosie's solo makes you think this one's going to be good only to be rather let down by the rest.
OTHER LIKES: Patti looking at the camera at the start (cut from the repeat).
Patti's Oh moment about 45 seconds in.
Rosie's version just a few seconds before that is more of an Ah moment.
COMMENT: Sometimes taking the song title literately has a detrimental effect on the choreography. This is a good case in point as the finished product with its darkness makes for unenjoyable viewing. I never choose to play this at all, but thats just me. Maybe others can find positives.
OTHER LIKES: The outfits are rather wasted on this.
SPOTTED: Not sure the presenter will be so keen on tackling that audience girl !
COMMENT: This is how I imagined the Raymond Revue Bar would look, though it was probably entirely different. Never went.
CHAMPAGNE: The opening shot when the girls peel away leaving a bent in two Rosie with her back to us. Very seductive.
OTHER LIKES: Actually, some of the overlays are pretty effective. I have no objection when on occasion the girls are stripped of their much-loved personalities and presented instead as the sultry female form gyrating to the beat of the music.
SPOTTED: The synchro is a bit out in places otherwise nothing.
I do like some of the overlays as I said above. The later ones just take over the screen, block out the dancers and make for a confusing display. They would have worked better had they been in the background.
