First I gather from their interviews that this anniversary is in part at least being funded by themselves, but still, they're Steps! Do not give me bargain budget music videos partially set in your garden. That's not to say it's not a beautiful garden and surroundings because they are, but this song basically deserved a better music video. I am completely here for the nostalgia and it did fit somewhat with the song. But seriously, give me a story, give me better surroundings and give me better dance moves than 20 seconds at the end of the video. You are better than this.
Which brings us to my second point; This song is a great cover of a good Abba song during the group parts and Claire + Faye's solo. When you get to Lisa's part however? That is when this falls apart. I honestly would've thought they'd learnt from the 'Scared of the Dark' music video, subsequent TV performances and just the album in general that this woman needs to be kept as far in the back as possible. Seems like I'm being harsh right? Well as many others have pointed out, during the 'Scared of the Dark' music video, there are parts where she is seriously out of time with the rest of them dance moves wise, especially during the part where she was leading, and that sets the rest of the band back. Then there's the fact she no longer has the confidence to know which camera she is supposed to be looking at, and at which point, and that makes the editing look shoddy which it's not. Should I even touch on the fact she can't even lip sync in time anymore? Or the fact that at the end of this music video, she's so focused on staring into the camera, she looks like the odd one out with Claire and Lee and then Faye and H joining up for the group hug. She's never been able to sing (which I have pointed out in numerous articles including touching on her ill-fated 'solo' pop career which she should thank studio auto-tune for even attempting), but now she can't even dance or lip sync well. Only thing she can do is stare into the camera, for what point, I'm not even sure she knows. Maybe it's her 5 minute claim to fame, or the fact she wants to be more noticed than she was previously. When Claire, Faye, H & Lee are more competent singers than she could ever dream to be. Especially Claire. During the live performances of 'Story of a Heart' towards the end of the song she is on ad libs and the rest are singing the chorus. It sounds absolutely horrible which isn't helped by our darling Lisa attempting to sing. Keep her in the back with her mic switched off and we'll all be happy.
