The Campest Clips Ever

I love Central Station. When they're not flogging Melissa's latest flop or one of Dannii's seemingly endless batch of "fan releases", they're unveiling classy DVD compilations like "The Campest Clips Ever". The title really says it all. This stunning offering compiles 28 tragifabulous video clips from the likes of Sheena Easton, Grace Jones, Nicki French and Bananarama - as well as appearances by all the usual suspects. My beloved Melissa even has a section all to herself! If that's not enticing enough, "The Campest Clips Ever" is hosted by fabulous drag identities Candy Box and Maxi Shield. The latter should at least add some glamour and style to the proceedings! On a slightly different note, I believe this is the first time Dannii's "Touch Me Like That" has been available on DVD (UK CD Single aside) making this a must for Minogue fans. Here's the tracklisting:

Camp Women
Cyndi Lauper - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun
Deborah Harry - I Want That Man
Sheena Easton - Giving Up, Giving In
Dannii Minogue - Touch Me Like That
Sophie Ellis Bextor - Murder On The Dancefloor

Camp Men
Culture Club - Do You Really Want To Hurt Me
Adam Rickett - I Breathe Again
Bearforce 1 - Bearforce 1
Wham - Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

Camp History
Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive
Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Relax
Hairspray - You Can't Stop The Beat
The Source Ft. Candi Staton - You Got The Love

Glamorous Life
Melissa Tkautz - Glamorous Life

Camp Entertainers
Alyson Moyet & Dawn French - Whispering Your Name
Grace Jones - Pull Up To The Bumper
Aqua - Barbie Girl
Vengaboys - We Like To Party
Cascada - Everytime We Touch

Camp Covers
Nicki French - Total Eclipse Of The Heart
Slinkee Minx - Summer Rain
Divided - Easy Lover
Groove Generation Ft. Leo Sayer - You Make Me Feel Like Dancing

Camp Groups
B-52's - Love Shack
Bronski Beat - Small Town Boy
Divinyls - I Touch Myself
Yazoo - Only You
Bananarama - Move In My Direction (Moto Blanco)

While there are some glaring omissions, it's hard to argue with any of the choices and I'm told this is only the first of several volumes. The DVD is released on the 5th of July and looks like an absolute must have. In the meantime, check out Central Station's stunning online promotion (below). It's basically a semi-naked guy dancing to Nicki French. Only Dannii's label could come up with a blockbuster like this!

I L.O.V.E. the cover!
Great design!!

All the astrualians MUST adopt an spaniard, cos here, in the 3rd world, they don't release DVD as queer as this one.

I'm gonna see them all on YouTube.

I can't believe they have Bearforce1 on there!

D'luv said...

Awww, no Steps! Must've been too expensive to license?

Good tracks, though! Long live Nicki French!

People who post anonymously to trash someone's blog are pathetic.

Oh, and I had no idea they had Melissa Tkautz on their rooster! Maybe they could convince her to do a cover of Bionda's "Forget Me Not"?

Poster Girl said...

WHY did no one think to release a DVD like this earlier?

Mike said...

I just love that Melissa has a category all to herself. I guess her unique genius is in a league of its own!

I think I just wet myself with excitement...

Not to mention Gina G - her Princess Jasmin turn in I Belong To You was sheer fabulousness without restrain. Certain remixes for Fresh! and Ti Amo also hit a homerun as camp classics. From what I remember, the video to Gimme Some Love is not too dissimilar to Girls Alouds' Something Kinda Ooooh promo. It's clear Steve Rodway had some kind of fixation with her as a pop star, fuck buddy or something because their partnership was never bettered by either element on their own.

The version of Total Eclipse of the Heart on the DVD is the slow version, not the dance version like in the above clip... :-(
