Frankie Valli and the mysteries of video shooting

"beggin', beggin' you
put your dancing shoes on baby"

Frankie Valli - Beggin' (pilooski edit)

The most amazing song for me at the moment.

Why on earth they shot a video like this one is a mystery to me. Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons (why the full name of the band isn't spelled out correctly is a mystery either) were, among other things, successful in the British northern soul scene in the 60s. Considering the timeline, the 1950s petticoat dancers are a complete miscast, and the sound doesn't really apply to these 80s hiphop dancers either.

There are people dancing northern soul nowadays. I bet these two young men would have loved to take part in the video:

Better luck next time!

And in case you would like to see and hear more northern soul (like I do!), try these guys:
