Thats some pricey spandex...

Well if this isn't one of the more interesting things I've read today!

1 . "Scream" by Janet and Michael Jackson for $7 Mil. $USD prob. I love this song. I remember this video, it was great! There was lots of Shiny Gold from what I remember, a vaguely Space sort of theme, and lots of lank Jackson hair. I can't think of why it would be so goddam expensive though!

2. "Victory" by Puff Daddy, way down from # 1 at only $2.7 Mil. I have no idea what this is. Enlighten me anyone?

3. "Heartbreaker" by Mariah Carey at $2.5 Mil. This was a pretty song, never saw the video. Any ideas people on its exorbitant cost? was she wearing a piece of $2 million dollar spandex over her crotch?

4. "What's It Gonna Be?!" by Busta Rhymes Feat Janet Jackson at $2.4 Mil. Hmm, more Janet.

5 "Larger than Life" By the Backstreet Boys at $2.1 Mil. Hehe, a very electronic song. I rather liked it, this being just before their decline about 5 years ago when we were in year 11 or 12. The video was set in space with a giant spaceship and there was lots of choreographed dancing (what am I saying-it was Backstreet Boys-of course there was) and they were wearing spacesuits. I guess for that genuine look it'd be pricey.

6. "fairyland" by Ayumi Hayasaki at an even $2 million. (yep I have no idea who that is)

6. "Bedtime Story" by Madonna also $2 mil. Now my resident expert of all things `donna, Billylou, will be able to tell us why this would have been so expensive. Is this the one that was R+ rated?

6. "Express yourself" also by Madonna also $2 Mil. I'm sure I've seen it but I can't distinguish it between all the Madonna I have in my head. I know Vogue has lots of Black and white and Marilyn Monroe looking Mads. Was it all the extras she hired?

6. "Miami" by Will Smith also $2 Mil. I don't know this song I don't think. Was this spawned from a Will Smith movie like all his other songs? I do like Will Smith though. Imagine a pumping bass beat while he belts out "do the robot" (AI-for those of you playing at home)

6. "She's a bitch" by Missy Elliott again 2 mil. Hmm...missy. Your best showing was in Lady Marmalade for Moulin Rouge. I imagine this video features lots of inappropriate wardrobe changes.

7. "Unpretty" by TLC at $1.6 Mil. *sigh* I really like this song too. I think it would have been expensive for the viedo because the background was possibly all computer imaged? They were dancing in front of psychadelic backgrounds (not in an Austin Powers sort of way but). Is that right everyone?

8. "November Rain" by Guns'N'Roses for only $1.5 mil. I love this song I love it I love it. "Do you need some time, on your own?". The guitar riffs of my childhood. *sniff* this video is a wedding thats getting ruined by rain. So by all accounts its a pretty authentic looking wedding, so I imagine that's where a chunk of the budget went. It's a very long song as well, like 7 or 9 minutes, so I guess they needed to film for that long which is all money.

8. and "Girlfriend/Boyfriend" by BLACKstreet and Janet Jackson also for the paltry sum of $1.5 mil. no idea. never seen it. And C'mon Janet! What's with the expensive film tastes!?

1 kindred spirits ~ This bugs them too!:

WOOT WOOT!! Go the gunnas!
That's GREAT!
I mean the song is just so Glam-Hair-Rock good,what with the wedding and the hair, and the models, and the hair and the rockers, and the tattoos (you thought I would say hair right?)

Nothin lasts forever in the cold November rain...
(OH THE IRONY !!!)
