SONG TITLE: Nothing’s gonna change my love for you
RELEASE DATE: 1987
GENRE: Pop – Love ballad (cheesy romantic)– Sweet (beware of tooth decay)
REASON OF SHAME: Old tune + Romantic + Corny = Old stupid romantic
REASON OF LIKE: it’s a kind of song that you would like to sing to a woman you love (but let’s be honest, women are ending up with douche bag not romantic guys…)
SONG’S PLOT: it was written originally for George Benson, who released it in his album “20/20” on 1985. But our boy, Glenn sang it at a local contest when he was 16, won the price, recorded it, got noticed then make a massive worldwide success. Poor George Benson, a teenager stole his spotlight!
The song itself, like many massive hits, is hammering the chorus almost all the song. Basically, it’s a story of a guy that can’t live without her loved one and he would never change his feelings about the girl. Believing in everlasting love sounds a paranormal song; but the feeling can happen for the first days of relationship and he was still an inexperienced teenager, so I’m pleading “not guilty”.
VIDEO PLOT (check the video after reading): In the 80’s period, where we saw some music videos costing as much as a movie budget, this video feels like my uncle Charly has shooted it for a free beer and recommends creative stuff like “how about you will be dressed with a bathrobe?”.
At the beginning, the couple is wandering near the beach but their clothes are wet up to their waist (maybe a previous wrong shot idea from the video producer…).
Then, they are up to a cliff… will they jump together? No, it’s a romantic tune, not a suicidal emo tune, please be focused!
Then a romantic face to face, where we see Glenn Medeiros, very serious, singing his song. Take it easy, pal, the girl is paid by the production, she will stay even if you have eaten garlic.
Here comes the bathrobe and the chorus! A little chase near the sea in slow-mo, a pure classic in corny video!
Now they are dancing on the cliff and we finally see the girl’s face.
Wait! It’s not a bathrobe, it looks like a coat that looks like a bathrobe, fashion designer at the 80s were all cocaine addicted, I presume.
Now the girl is riding a horse at the seashore with the sunset in the background, it couldn’t be more “cliché”.
There is an attempt for a kiss, but it probably wasn’t included in the girl’s contract, so we didn’t see it. Love can be cruel, Glenn, stop your romantic song and she’ll kiss you at once. And what were you expecting staying at the beach all day long, chasing her, singing at her face, having clothes soaked with salty water and not even paying for a meal or a drink, she probably thought that she has sunburns thanks to a money-less teenager, next time she will head for an old folk that will pay her an expensive purse. No comments!
