'SHE WAS HOT' - Video version?

I'm sure this has been discussed before but why did they speed up the audio for the MTV video promo? Seemed very odd at the time...


Thanks,
Steve

They also included an extra verse (...pick up the telephone...).

my guess is that they wanted it to fit into a certain time frame, maybe that was necessary at the time for more tv time, mtv, vh1, etc.

I had never noticed that before (the speed or the additional verse). Listening to both side by side it's an interesting choice. I think maybe the faster pace worked better for a video and the extra verse perhaps made for a better story line?

Quite a funny video, but VERY dated now.

A decent number, but honestly I thought the video was dated already then. Some kind of '50s pastiche sexism.
Then they went on to do "Sex Drive" a couple of years later. If anyone remembers?

And the beginning of the Anybody Seen My Baby-video topped them all smiling smiley

"She Was Hot" was Julien Temple's homage to Frank Tashlin's The Girl Can't Help It with Jayne Mansfield. The dated sexism and Freudian symbolism come direct from Tashlin as much as the classy suits the band wore. [www.youtube.com]

If you want to call 1983 and 1991 a couple of years...

Isn't that weird, that REWIND and 25 X 5 haven't been reissued on Blu-ray etc?

Here's the full (unedited - the telephone part and the ending) version that sounds much more decent than the previous one I'v heard:

Ahhh... I see Gazza is listed at the end of the video! That's fantastic!

I never knew this! I wish they would have shared that sort of thing when the video first came out. I would have discovered Little Richard and The Girl Can't Help It earlier.

Thank you, GasLight and Gazza! I've wanted an upgrade of this since I first read about it in Bill German's fanzine in 1984.

You would deny it. I see this as further proof you are Matt Clifford. Meantime, some enterprising Irishman gets free drinks from fans at concerts by claiming he's Gazza.

Can you play a mean tambourine to "Brown Sugar?"

Is it a triangle in HAVANA MOON during that amazing close-up? I thought Bernard had the triangle, but I could be mistaken. My mind does tend to whirl when you see a master musician in the spotlight like that.

I recall two different audio endings to this video -- one had "Off The Hook".

I also recall the live debut of this song on a *very* cold Chicago night!

"Off the Hook" was the proper video ending, but ABKCO wouldn't license it for VIDEO REWIND so they removed it and just went with phones literally ringing off the hook while Charlie leers at the camera as Anita Morris' pimp doing his best Buster Keaton answering phones without actually speaking.

lol, yes, Cuba. Hilarious.



New York was cold and damp
TV is just a blank
Looks like another dead end Sunday
What about an early night
Monday never feels so bright
Ooh the sheets feel cold and lonely
Who wants to brave the pouring rain
For a glass of French champagne?
Well grab a cab, grab a cap and baby, come right by
And she was hot, as she kissed my mouth
She was hot, as I wiped her brow
She was hot, she pinned me to the ground
She was quick, she knew her way around
She was hot, as she tore my clothes
She was hot, she had no place to go
She was hot, on a cold and rainy night
Detroit was smoky grey
Nothing like the good old days
Well I got a fever that I'm fighting
I don't need your company
Leave me in my misery
I can take the rebound just like lightning
And she was hot, in a 50's dress
She was hot, her lips were flashing red
I was lost, in her burning flesh
I was hot, I was dripping sweat
She was hot, in the Detroit snow
She was hot, she had no place to go
She was hot, on a cold and rainy night
And she was hot, and I had the blues
She was hot, honey, where were you?
If you were in my shoes
You would be excused
She was hot, you could never wait
She was hot, never hesitate
She was hot, on a cold and rainy night
I think I'm going off the rails
Riding down the pleasure trails
I was taking passion where you find it
Honey when you're young and fresh
And you need the touch of flesh
Go take the treasure where you find it
And she was hot, in the melted snow
She was hot, in the molten glow
She was hot, she got it in the blood
She was hot, like the dam that bursts
She was strong, she was strong and true
She was black, and her eyes were blue
She was lost, and she took a chance
At just a brief romance
Down the avenue into the lost bayou
Into the tall bamboo, back to the human zoo
I wish you all the best, I hope we meet again
In a cold Chicago night

They're jobbing out re-mixes for this one in hopes of attracting
the millennial and other more contemporary markets hip to the digital revolution with it's AI and etc...
...so look for the "She Was Bot" video sometime this Fall.
