If you know me, when it comes to music videos, I am all about the scantily clad female with perky bosoms who does girl-on-girl mud wrestles and / or washes their car with sudsy water, as it cascades over them. Or both.
Oh yes, you know me well.
Unfortunately, this video is as close as Poe has to having one still out there on the web. Warner Bros., like many other record labels, have blocked official videos produced by their artists from being on YouTube, as either side has yet to come to agreement on licensing / payment.
With Haunted, 2000 was the last year Poe has released an album, at least that I am aware of. While technically not a collaborative affair with her brother, Mark Danieleski, it did play off some of his themes for his book, House of Leaves - which still ranks up there as the weirdest and one of the more difficult novels I have ever read.
But Haunted is a great album. If nothing else, it has three incredible songs: the title track, "Not a Virgin" and version of the one featured here, "Hey Pretty".
You don't really hear the entire song here, as there is a monologue / reading from her brother (part that she even lip syncs) that is interspersed between parts of the song. Other parts of the song aren't even present here. The concept is different in that way, and perhaps the bra, mud and suds are supposed to be ironic. Perhaps.
I would hope anyway, but you know, a gal has got to sell records - which she technically didn't do enough of, and Warners dropped her not that long after the record was released.
