I have been featuring this song by the Canadian band Stars on Freedom Rock (Sunday nights at 9p) on and off for the last 3 or 4 months. I love it. Well, the band have finally released a proper video to accompany it. The band's front man, Torquil Campbell, describes the inspiration for this fab new video:
"I wanted to make a video that celebrated the following things: 1. Being yourself 2. Being someone else 3. Being fucking fabulous 4. Showing up, putting on your heels and staying alive. Drag queens know a couple of things the rest of us choose not to know: you are who you imagine yourself to be, and you can be a star even if, especially if, nobody ever knows who you really are. That’s the spirit of pop, and this is a video for a POP song that most people will never hear. So I thought it all went together like Sonny and Cher. Hope you all enjoy it."
I do to. A celebratory video to go along with a song that has a brilliant message. Have a great Pride weekend, everyone.
