has anyone noticed so many pixels by the end of the video?, even choosing 1080p has the pixels!

I really like the video & single edit! I actually think it makes a good single. I just struggle with Alex's stage prescence - he & Melanie are worlds apart.

Has it been released to radio in Germany yet?

Berlin <3 :love: I like the radio edit of the song, it might actually become a hit with good promotion.

Why is Hold On video unlisted in YouTube and not even showing on her YouTube channel unless we have the link???!!! I really don't understand... Is there something I don't know about unlisted videos that might actually be good?

Alex's shots were way better than Melanie's... The only great shot of Melanie is the looking out the door shot. Still it's a great video. Suits the song very much.

It's on the Melanie C Vevo channel, which isn't available to some countries. Hopefully she posts it on her own channel. What a horrible PR move on Sony's part. They shouldn't restrict who can see their artists' videos.

I don't think he was at her door. I think they had two separate story lines going and left the viewer guessing with what happened at the end with his storyline.

YouTube compression. It's shitty. I have the digital masters for Anymore and Dear Life, they're crystal clear compared to YouTube.

Melanie is not waiting for Alex and Alex is not going to Melanie. Check the name of the room. Alex knocked on a different door and Melanie opened a different one as well... It's a good twist actually. :)

Where did that link come from? I find it weird that Melanie tweeted that her video would be released, but then never actually announced it the day it was released and now it's available in secret? How do fans know the link to the video?

I'm not very keen on either the song or the video, to be honest - I find it quite boring, and Alex Francis' involvement doesn't exactly add value.

That said, with the right amount of promotion, I can see this becoming a hit in Germany. I really can. Fingers crossed! :)

Ah! I was kinda thinking it had to do with offering it to the German's first because of Sony's involvement. I'm guessing it will probably be made public for everyone else later then.

You can hide a video from view, but still be availble via links. I guess it was an exclusive deal with that website that they did this.

Exclusive deal with someone, I guess.

Because you're too lazy to work out the meaning? It's kinda obvious what the meaning is :Dizzy:

It might be boring but it`s beautiful and certainly not meaningless.

Melanie is not waiting for Alex and Alex is not going to see Melanie. Check the name of the suite showing on the door. Alex knocked on a different door and Melanie opened a different door. Great twist. :)

Or a real twist in the end... Alex is actually meeting someone else and Melanie is waiting for someone else as well... Better than Alex travelling that far just to leave Melanie wondering... And I can't see them as an item even just for the sake of a music video... Hehe. :)

I just can't. This song is... I'm sorry. So sorry she has such a bad taste in her releases. Even the bside one minute has more soul than this.

Remember, back in the day, when the Spice Girls would release a new single and we wouldn't know it was coming? We were so excited to see something new by the girls and we fell in love with the videos for the mere fact that the girls were in another video. You know, before the internet where everyone became a critic and started thinking they know better than everybody else and thinking musical artists needed to cater to the fans rather than pursuing their passions and making work they're proud of. Yeah, those were good times. Nobody just sits back to enjoy things anymore.

Now, Melanie releases four singles in the span of six months and majority of the fans aren't happy about anything and want to pick everything apart as though they're experts in the industry. Yeah, that's definitely gonna entice her releasing music. :rolleyes:

Because you were plain even in the early spice girls days and wasn't critical or owned an opinion, it doesn't mean everyone was the same.
