Who: Take That
What: “Love Love”
Produced by: Alexandliane
I have to admit, I don’t exactly have a great deal of criticisms to make of this video. Mostly because a good half of it is footage from the next X-Men movie which, geek as I am, I can’t wait to go see.
However, the song itself somewhat surprised me. When I saw that Take That were going to be on the X-Men: First Class soundtrack, I was a bit taken aback; I didn’t really see how the band that produced Robbie Williams could realistically be expected to create a song suitably epic for a film that, let’s face it, is going to be a serious Oscar contender for 2012.
Instead of the mushy ballad I expected to hear, I found myself listening to what sounded like a mixture of Eurovision techno and 8Os vocals. Of course my love of all things film is equalled only by my love of the 8Os, and my love of Eurovision, so of course I can’t find a bad word to say about the music either; it may be cheesy, but I can certainly find room for it on my cheeseboard.
Touché, Take That, touché…
