Hung Up

I just watched the music video of Madonna's latest effort, "Hung Up". Everybody hails it as her return to the dance floor where she first gained fame. I listened to the song a few weeks back and it was quite good. If you forgive her for sampling ABBA's "Gimme Gimme Gimme" flute tune, you will appreciate the infectious beat, catchy lyrics, and pure pop sensibility.

Unfortunately, I was less impressed with the video. There isn't much of Madonna dancing, and all the dancers in the video look as if they are in an epileptic fit. It's too bad, really, coz if she had used standard dance steps I could see it being followed by every dancer on this sad lonely planet.
