    I feel like I've seen that video a million times. I wish popstars would think about more interesting visuals, or at least take a few risks.

    I don't think the video is dark at all. It's fun from the minute she starts singing, the constant smiling, the colour around her.

    It's the best thing Crazy Stupid Love has given us.

    Oh I love the video, don't know what I was worried about. So many cute smiles and fierce choreography ahoy. I agree it's a bit like a fun version of Maneater. She could have easily gone for a sunny summer video though (I still think my fairground idea would've been better...)

    For some reason the song just gave me Love Machine vibes.

    The video is a bit too dark for the song. It's very generic, I'd rather a summery vibe.

    The lyric video was made by someone who doesn't even know what a saxophone is. What makes you think they had enough money to fund an outdoor shoot for the actual video?

    It's basically the live dance breakdown made into a full song.

    The video is great, it's impossible to take your eyes off her, and I'm loving her as a blonde!

    MrJames, THANK YOU for clocking people on their bullshit!
     
  11. Re: Cheryl Cole - Crazy Stupid Love (released July 20th) + 4th Album discussion

    Come on guys! Did you expect something more when you heard that the video is directed Colin Tilley? His videos have the same style!
     
  12. Re: Cheryl Cole - Crazy Stupid Love (released July 20th) + 4th Album discussion

    Sadly the video can't save the song.
     
  13. Re: Cheryl Cole - Crazy Stupid Love (released July 20th) + 4th Album discussion

    The video is really good, maybe my favourite.
    And I really tried to hear what's so horrible about the song and I failed, it's just an average song and it doesn't appeal to me like it should, but I will love it in time. I just don't understand why people are screaming it's horrible and horrendous, I just don't hear it.
     
  14. Re: Cheryl Cole - Crazy Stupid Love (released July 20th) + 4th Album discussion

    It's the saxophone. Everytime I hear it I just think "They cannot possibly mean it". I think they went for more old-school sound or whatever, but it ended up sounding like a demo. And the rap would ruin the song even if it wasn't produced so cheaply.

    The video looks like it belongs to an entirely different song.

    And yes the saxophone makes it sound comical, farcical even. I mean obviously it makes it stand out and it's got people talking but I don't think it's going to grow on me, I genuinely think it's just bad. That said, the actual lyrics are fine... until you get to Tinie's "dickmatised" rap which makes me cringe horribly. Leave the dickmatising to Khia.

    I didn't like this song at first but I must confess it has been growing on me. It's been running through my head a lot recently.
     
  18. Re: Cheryl Cole - Crazy Stupid Love (released July 20th) + 4th Album discussion

    I don't think it's horrendous, you're quite right, it's just decidedly average. The problem I (and, I imagine, many others) have is that a) it's not lead single material and b) it's especially not Cheryl lead single material. Considering the often dubious quality of her albums, her lead singles were always the one thing you could rely on her for, and this time she hasn't really delivered.
     
  19. Re: Cheryl Cole - Crazy Stupid Love (released July 20th) + 4th Album discussion

    The video would have been more fitting for a song like Boy Like You or Sexy Den A Mutha, not this. Great video though.
     
  20. Re: Cheryl Cole - Crazy Stupid Love (released July 20th) + 4th Album discussion

    The video on it's own is great but I'm not entirely sure if it fits with the song. The song itself sort of grew on me. I listened to it like 30 times in a row to see if it gets better and i like it a little bit now. The sax is still tragic (and she doesn't really do much with it in the video. Like if you're gonna have it there you better do the absolute most with it).
