“I know a dog remains a dog, even on a short lead…”
Here’s the skinny on Laura Imbruglia. She has a more famous sister, but unlike Dannii Minogue she’s actually the cooler of the two. She’s been ripping out awesome tunes for years now, from sweet alt-country to thrashy garage rock. This little number, from her latest record The Lighter Side of Laura Imbruglia, falls into the former category with a bit more of a folk tinge to it, as she croons about uncomfortably shifting herself into a love triangle and trying to steal away a boy of interest.
The plot of the video is followed fairly literally in the video, which was directed by Robert Babekuhl & Filipe Marques in a very cheap and very charming manner. The quirky story is followed with playful melodrama, some sweet handball moves and even a notion that shit could get violent when Laura picks up a knife and gets stabby. Even if she does seem a tad on the crazy side, I’d go out with Laura in a second – and you’ll probably want to as well when you’re done with the video. Another hot tip: near the end of the video is a clue for the My Favourite Video selection Laura’s done for the blog, which will be up in a few week’s time. Weee!
