and the music plays on..

28 Sep

I’ll be the first to admit that although my tastes in music vary, I really can’t go past some trashy pop, or music that tries to take itself seriously.

And my two recent addictions music-wise have been the following two songs. And wouldn’t you know, they were both filmed in Brisbane!

The first song doesn’t count as trashy pop in any way.

Megan Washington, the subject of some rather confusing dreams, weaves her musical magic for “Sunday Best” in a very theatrical way.
Filmed in the fantastic(ly expensive) French Restaurant “Belle Epoch” at The Emporium with it’s angled mirrors, wall of alcohol and cute booths. Unfortunately it’s about to close and make way for an Italian Restaurant.

But enjoy the film clip!

The second, is Scarlett Belle’s single “Closure”.
For those of you who don’t know, Tamara Jabar (or Tam-Jabs as I lovingly refer to her) was once a part of Scandal’Us, most remembered for their catchy hit Me, Myself and I, has now broken up with her husband, Australia’s biggest piece of wanker Kyle Sandilands, and is now part of an attempt at a two girl group with some woman from Australian Idol.

It was filmed in Cloudland in Fortitude Valley. Filled with themed areas, avant garde (bordering on a kitschy tackyness that I love) interior design, a ceiling that opens and a massive water wall. They do a really great tapas menus too! (Click here for the Cloudland website)

Youtube won’t let me embed this one, so jump through to the link!

And because I can’t resist.. here is Scandal’Us’s filmclip for “Me, Myself and I”
