Benny Benassi Featuring Gary Go - Cinema

12 September Critic Jonni 1 Comments

I haven't heard this song much, I remember it gaining top 20 status in the UK singles chart a few months ago, but I don't think I actually listened to it fully until today. I was flipping (as usual) on the music channels, and there was nothing else on, so I watched this music video and I was just surprised at how catchy the song is, and I've had it in my head all day. But I haven't got a clue what the music video is about, I understand parts of it but I believe it is pretty weird.

Benny Benassi has released loads of singles and albums, and has remixed quite a lot of well known songs. But this is the first time I've heard of him, so I really am interested in exploring his other singles. This song was written by Benny Benassi and Alle Benassi who both appear in this music video, if it's really them. Along with Gary Go who also appears in this music video (he is the first one to sit in the chair). Gary Go is a British singer who has released a few singles back in 2009, but that's about it. This single could possibly help him to do well in the UK chart, or not.

I really like this song, it kind of reminds me of The Saturdays single "All Fired Up", but also I think it's quite similar to Avicii Featuring Sebastien Drums "My Feelings For You". I could so see this song being in all the clubs and I am quite surprised the song only managed to get to number 20, as I think it is quite a cute and interesting song. The lyrics are pretty adorable at times, and I can't stop singing them "you are a cinema, I could watch you forever". The sound behind it is really catchy and very dance-like. You wouldn't expect these lyrics would go with this music but it fits perfectly and this song will definitely be stuck in my head for a while.

As I have previously mentioned, I do not understand this music video, therefore it goes in to my list of music videos I do not understand. At the moment I have only one other music video in that list, which is: Kids In Glass Houses "Matters At All". I'm sure there will be many more appearing in this imaginary list pretty soon, and I really can't wait to see which other music videos confuse me.

I have to admit, I do like the helmet idea and how it is possible that they are watching a part of their past, well that's how I think of it. And that all these girls are people they like and they go to this place so they could watch their girlfriends forever. Even though there is only one girl, she plays different characters. Which I find really interesting. But then I don't get the last part because Benny Benassi's girl walks in with her own card. Does that mean she thinks he is also a cinema and she can watch him forever?

This music video really does confuse me and I've tried lots of different ideas, like, the three guys didn't know who the people they were watching, as if they were dreams, so that would make sense that she surprised them. Maybe these three girls are supposed to be dead and so the only way Benny Benassi, Alle Benassi and Gary Go can remember them is to go to this place and watch them forever, this also would explain the ending. However these are just theories, and there is nothing online that supports any of my ideas, so this music video has definitely totally baffled me.

Overall I really like the song and I can't stop listening to it. However the music video, although has a really great idea and I really do like it, has mystified and puzzled me making me unsure if I like this music video or not. I can't wait to see what other music videos they have released and I hope this is the only one that will puzzle me. I hope you all think my rating is fair, and I'm sorry if people have come on her hoping I have an answer to what this music video means. I'd be interested in your thoughts....

  1. There is only one girl in the video. She just changes her hair colour! :P

    So they are all watching the same girl. The she comes in with her ow card, but we never find out who she is watching in the helmet.
