Turn It Up!: Martika - Flow With The Go
It's been quite a wait for the new Martika video to be presented to the fans (about 20 years or so to be precise, but who's counting?) but I'm so thrilled that the day has finally come and I get to present it to the 3 people who actually read this blog lol.
What can I say about the video other than, Look At How Much FUN She Is Having!!!! The style, the wardrobe and the simple concept of the video are a perfect match for the lighthearted, cheeky and funny lyrics within the song. If Martika wanted the listener/viewer to take a minute out of their day to truly let loose and just have a good time (Flow With The Go as it were), then mission accomplished!
I'm loving the whole glowing microphone, romping around outside, sassily rolling around in a bed while also dancing her ass off like a Latina version of Sailor Moon! She has a real sense of play and of not taking herself too seriously, which is so much fun to watch and has me anticipating the release of her new album The Mirror Ball and the impending tour that will accompany it.
I was going to address the fact that many fans have been split about their feelings toward the new endeavor, but the only thing I really have to say about that is that you are fully allowed your opinion and I respect the fact that it may not be your cup of tea, but in my own humble opinion this is a wonderful track to have returned with because it's representative of the happy-go-lucky attitude of early 90's pop music which is where Martika got her start.
This Toy Soldier is very pleased! Colored Kisses Everyone & Welcome Back Martika!!!
