New music videos (the battle of the blondes)

Probably the best thing about the return of No Doubt is that it doesn’t feel like a comeback. Gwen and co haven’t altered their lazy ska/reggae sound and there’s no attempt to sound current e.g. “REDONE…Stefani!” etc. Because of this it actually stands out from everything else processed and vocodered within an inch of its life in the charts – and that might be the secret to this reunion’s success. Look out for Harajuku girl lurking in the back of Gwen’s truck (apparently it’s Love – Angel, Music and Baby were either indisposed or superfluous) in the equally laid back video:

For a woman whose album scuttled off the charts faster than Bionic by Christina, Madonna really isn’t in a position to be lazy. A video involving carefree driving around Florence with dancers and hookers just isn’t going to cut it. As for the song – it should’ve remained with Sunday Girl who it was originally recorded with. Nothing about this single has personality..

Have a lovely weekend.
