    –I also like the music video of LOVE MAKES THINGS HAPPEN very much. I had never seen its mv before until a few days ago. If I understand it correctly, I think it has a very interesting narrative structure, because it starts with

    1.BOY A and GIRL A are married with kids.

    2.BOY A meets GIRL B in a train, and went to have a dinner together.

    3.GIRL B met BOY B in the restaurant, and went to see a show together.

    4.BOY B likes GIRL C, who was the show performer, and they are in a car together.

    5.GIRL C likes BOY C, who works in a garage, and they ride a motorcycle together.

    6.BOY C meets GIRL A at her house, and they go to see a film together.

    7.GIRL A meets BOY A in the cinema.

    –My most favorite song of Pebbles is WHY DO I BELIEVE

    –I like Shanice very much. I’m glad to hear her high voice at the end of BREATHE AGAIN.

    –Thank you for the links to I DIDN’T MEAN TO TURN YOU ON. I like this MV of Cherelle very much. It is very funny. I also worship another song by Cherelle. It’s called AFFAIR.

    –I like the MV of Candy by Cameo very much. The fashion in this MV is ultimate 1980’s. It brings back memories of some films during that era, such as THE SECRET OF MY SUCCESS (1987, Herbert Ross). I also like the dress of the singer of LAST NIGHT A DJ SAVED MY LIFE.

    –I still haven’t seen GLITTER yet. Talking about songs of the 1980’s, I think about the soundtrack of ROMY AND MICHELE’S HIGH SCHOOL REUNION (1997, David Mirkin, A+).

    Thank you for the link to DON’T GET ME WRONG. I like the voice of Chrissie Hynde, too. I also like her songs STATE OF INDEPENDENCE and I’LL STAND BY YOU. I don’t like Jane Austen’s novels, but I think her stories are fit for many pop music videos, because most pop songs are about love. It would be more difficult to make a pop music video out of Charles Dicken’s stories about poverty, or out of a novel like MOBY DICK or TESS OF THE D’URBERVILLES. Hahaha.

    I didn’t know that I’LL STAND BY YOU is about animals. This case makes me think about the song MIRACLE by Whitney Houston, because I hadn’t known at first that this song is an anti-abortion song or something like that.
