It is where Shania is on her knees bending forward with her hands pulled behind her back. It is like she is purposely trying to show her cleavage. If you don't know by now that Shania has great cleavage you must have been on an island by yourself for the past 10 years! I just don't think that that particular scene does anything for the video. It just looks to staged. Don't get me wrong, I still love this video. In fact it is a favorite of mine. I just wish she was not bending over or at least bending over for a specific purpose - and I don't mean just to show her cleavage.


Then you are definitely not going to like my latest avatar...LOL!! You are right that Shania is showing off her body to advantage but as Doc pointed out earlier, she is doing that throughout the video to the point where it distracts from the "story" of the couple. He is right but, as an older but not-dead-yet male, I love the distraction!

I'll go the opposite way from you, Doc. I would like to see this video without the story being told. I already know the story - I've listened to the song a bazillion times. I'd like to see just Shania on the beach. Mind you, this could very well be my favorite video of hers ever as is, but as beautiful as the story was, I was always anxious to get back to her. Her elegance and that incredible scenery were captivating.

If I had one complaint about this video-and you ain't gona believe this-I thought there was a bit TOO much Shania in it or at least Shania was overly active in the video. I kept wanting to get back to the story line. I loved the video, I thought Shania was beautiful in it, and her top was way over the top but I would have much preferred that she had just been slowly walking along singing as if she was remembering or thinking of the someone the song was about. All the sensuality seemed a bit out of place in this video to me (can you believe I just said that! LOL). I know I'll get crushed for saying this but if I can't be honest here-where can I be honest? I think this video could have been better-but who needs perfection anyways! LOL. DOC



I'm with you Doc
At the very end, I think it looks as though she is losing her balance a bit....would have been a funny ending to just let her fall to the sand and laugh that laugh
You guys crack me up about the top! Ever hear of "Elastic"? My guess is it's just at the very top of the sweater. And a cool sweater it is!
My fav vid cap so far is the side view of her walking!
Keep Requesting!

No, I like your avatar. I don't mind Shania showing off her body (if I had a body like that I would flaunt, too). Yes, she does show off her body all through the video but that particular poise just looks too staged. As a picture it is great. I also agree with Joni at the end of the video she looks off balance. And I love the side view - I really love the video. I don't want any less of Shania though. You could take every videocap and make portraits of them the are so beautiful.

Hot Shot rotation..............


Okay, I got an email from CMT, some complained that Toby was getting 14 plays to Shania's 9. That is because rotation is done by video, not the artist. Toby has 2 videos, to Shania's one.

I was under the impression that heavy rotation meant lots of plays on the FAFA video kinda like they did with IGGG.... Any of her videos are fine in my book but I would like to see FAFA in more prime time, like tonight around 7:30P instead of 2 or 3AM.... Maybe I'm just too impatient but FAFA only had 4 plays today during prime viewing hours.....Have not checked tomorrow's schedule yet

FAFA - Love Video

Let's get real, people!!

This video is for all true Shania fans - the kind that made us love her from the very beginning. Gee - What Made Me Say That?

Yes she is posing, yes she is showing her body (is that a bad thing!!!), yes she is off balance.. yada, yada, yada!

She can stand on her head for all I care and I will still love it.

What a face, what a voice, what a song, what a beach - must be heaven!!.

My only suggestions to make FAFA an even better video are:

- Lose the little kids
- Lose the hippy surfers
- Lose the old folks

Give me SHANIA only "For Ever and For Always"

Chris -

We have only seen it on GAC - we do not get CMT. It premiered here on GAC Sunday evening at 8pm before the Top 20 Countdown began. We have watched the tape over and over!!

Have not seen it on VH1 or VH1 Country yet.

PS: Thanks for all your posts. pics and for Shania's Place!!

Maybe on Saturday when they do "fresh music".

In the mean time, here is a sneak peek at the new Fanclub Calendar. Look for it after 11pm est tonight.

Welcome to the boards - we have something in common with having GAC! We lost cmt when AOL Time Warner Cable here switched to GAC from cmt a couple of years ago. To get it back we have to pay extra for digital service and movies.
