HUGH CORNWELL – Another Kind of Love

Baby, baby, welcome to my world
It ain’t, baby, like no other world
Kick your shoes off, give a little smile
Kick your troubles in my head
And start to drive me wild

JAN SVANKMAJER: Another Kind of Love - MPEG-4 clip
A wonderful gift from antville’s kayser sauze, this music video directed by stop animation master Jan Švankmajer.

Another Kind of Love (Jiný druh lásky) “has been described as an anti-clip, and this is much in evidence right from the opening lines of the song. Hugh Cornwell sings Baby, baby, welcome to my world, but the images tell a very different story: he is doubly trapped, both in the world of the female figure that metamorphoses throughout the video, and of course in Svankmajer’s world. Even the first word, baby, is wickedly subverted, as it is clear who is in control: the female…” (excerpt from Michael Brooke’s commentary)

Another Kind of Love (Jiný druh lásky) “è stato descritto come un anti-clip, e ciò è già evidente dalle prime parole della canzone. Hugh Cornwell canta Baby, baby, benvenuta nel mio mondo, ma le immagini raccontano tutt’altra storia: egli è doppiamente in trappola, sia nel mondo della figura femminile, trasformantesi lungo tutto il video, che in quello di Svankmajer. Persino la prima parola, baby, viene sovvertita, in quanto è chiaro chi è che comanda: la donna. (estratto dal commento di Michael Brooke)
