Picks and Pans Review: Singular Videos
>COLD HEARTED Paula Abdul‘s elegantly choreographed video is a tribute to the darkly sexy “Take Off with Us” number from Bob Fosse’s film All That Jazz. Abdul couldn’t use nudity, but she and her chorus boys and girls still stir a hormone or two.
ALL I WANT FROM YOU Directed by Jeffrey Hornaday, who has worked with such people as Madonna and Michael Jackson, this good-natured video features the Temptations, dressed in gold foil suits. The Tempts’ mildly codger-like steps are intercut with five gorgeous (and more acrobatic) young ladies doing stylized versions of the ensemble dance routines male R&B groups have used since the ’50s. The glow-in-the-dark beauty in the peach outfit is Lisa Marie Todd.
