29 March 2013 – All Saints – Never Ever – over on Wicked Guilty Pleasures

All Saints were an all-girl group consisting of members from the UK and Canada. In the US, All Saints are essentially one-hit wonders. In the UK and elsewhere, they’re much better known for a cover they did that I’ll have to put on Totally Covered one of these days.  They were one of the most successful groups of the late 90’s there.

This is the one US hit.  It starts as a typical R&B ballad, which in itself would not make it a Wicked Guilty Pleasure.  Actually, that’s not 100% true.  It starts off really quiet, spoken-word, and really sad.  But it gets stronger and louder as the song winds on. It also is the rare song that specifically speaks both to a US (“The alphabet runs right from a to zee”) and a UK/Canadian (“The alphabet runs right from a to zed”) audience.  As someone with a zed in his name, I appreciate that.  All in all, the song is well crafted and well performed.

Plus, there are LOTS of explosions in the video.

As is often the case, the group made a special video just for the US and Canada.  Who knows why, but here it is.  There aren’t as many explosions, but there’s a car on fire.
