S Club 7 - Bring It All Back

19 July Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Yes, I am bringing it all back. I am going to see Jo O'Meara and Bradley McIntosh, two of the band members from this group, in just over a week, so I'm bringing it all back, but not just S Club songs. The other acts performing on 30 July will be Booty Luv and Big Brovaz. This song was S Club 7's debut single in conjunction with their TV series Miami 7. The music video features scenes from the TV series as they totally perform the hell out of the song on a beach stage.

S Club 7 were a seven piece group that started off in a TV show called Miami 7. They consisted of Hannah Spearritt, Jo O'Meara, Jon Lee, Tina Barrett, Rachel Stevens, Bradley McIntosh and Paul Cattermole. They were just starting out with this debut single, but it got around and became an instant number one hit. The song was written by S Club 7, Eliot Kennedy, Tim Lever and Mike Percy.

There is apparently two official music videos released for this song. However, since this is the UK and Australian version, I'll leave the other one for the American's, and if I ever need to, I can always review that one at a later date.

This is a full performance-based music video with intercutted scenes of Miami 7 throughout. The performance is set on a beach stage in Miami, and at the very end we can see a small crowd of people watching them from afar.

The performance is a usual S Club 7 performance, full of confident dance moves that had kids copying them all around the world. The choreography is simple and relates to the song in detail. This was the typical manufactured pop dance moves that were around at the time.

Totally confident, all even members of this group nails the choreography, and although it is totally over the top, this was the style back then. It totally explains my confidence as a child.

The scenes of Miami 7, adds very little to the the music video, apart from breaking up the performance scene.

Overall, it works to an extent, but the scenes from Miami 7 distracts from the overall visual of the video, failing to capture any sort of narrative, and instead showing a collection of scenes to advertise the show. Which totally brings down my rating.
