Guru Josh - Infinity

20 November Critic Jonni 0 Comments

As promised, I will be reviewing this music video. I have reviewed "Guru Josh Project - Infinity 2008", which was the updated version of this song and made this song once again a hit. This is the original version and it is Guru Josh solo and so therefore the band members in Guru Josh Project didn't join forces in the original.

Guru Josh is the stage name for Paul Walden. He wrote this song himself (although not a lot of writing needed to be done, unless he wrote the keyboard and the saxophone music). And it managed to get widespread success in 1990 (when I wasn't even born). d Number 5 here in the UK, but didn't manage to get a number one anywhere in the world. I have no idea why this was such a big hit. I can imagine the DJ's playing this song a lot in the clubs, but don't really understand why this managed to get so high in the charts. I find it pretty boring, and compared to what is out now, or even what was out back then, there was definitely better songs. The key part that makes this song different is the saxophone, it is so strong and really catchy that it may have tainted the people in the clubs to buy the single, as I have no other idea on how this managed to get to be a chart hit. Personally I definitely prefer "Infinity 2008", as it actually has lyrics.

Now this music video is pretty boring, but it does actually go well with the song. I have no idea how I would have made this music video any better, since it is purely just music. It is usually what club songs do for music videos if there are no lyrics, although some times it's not as clear as it could be, but then again it could be the camera they used.

Some of the crowd dancers are a little weird, but then again that may be the dancing style they used back then. I like the fact that not much has changed since then, with the way clubs are nowadays. I really don't have a lot to say about this music video do I?

Overall, the song is rubbish and I don't have any idea how this got into the chart, let alone the top 10, but it's music video does link well, and although I think the song deserves a low rating, I can't do that to the music video as it's not their fault. I hope you all agree that this music video deserves this rating and I don't know what was going on back then, can someone please explain to me why this song became such a hit?
