I still didn't see the video yet, because here is still not on VH1-Europe, and downloading is just a pain on my computer, but....

Do I need a sing-language dictionary when I will see it?[just kidding]
I have no idea what to expect after all the different opinions of yours, but sure it will be a treat.

Anyone know about hand sign language? I've pretty much figured out what the body language beyond the hand movement means (LOL) but I wondered about the hand movement. DOC

If I remember correctly I have seen those same hand movements during her Flameworthy and Juno performance of the song...I think she may use her hands during some parts of the song to keep the note/harmony or something like that..it seems it helps her giving a perfect rendition of the song...yes, during the shooting of the video she was not singing LIVE...lol...but I think she associates those hand movements to the song automatically, I would not be surprised to see the same movements when she sings it LIVE in concert...the same way she uses her mike, the way she moves it away from her mouth at times...

Fans generally over-analyze everything about their favorite artists. When it comes to Shania however the analyzing reaches Olympic proportions because for some reason she affects us more than most singers due to her ability, talent, voice and personality. I will be the first to admit I am a SHANIAHOLIC and I do not apologize for it.

The "air guitar" she did at the flameworthys was the best.

I have extremely (oh, you wouldn't believe just how) limited knowledge of American Sign Language. We're learning it for Cody. Drat! MUST watch FAFA yet again to study hand movements.

I think her earings disappear in some of the closeups...maybe that is why she is kneeling in the water, she is looking for them....

I find this whole video fascinating....especially the outfit. One of my favorite songs on the album.

Ainahs - appreciate the welcome. We could never get CMT here in CT nor any country video channel. When cable went digital here last year we were thrilled we could get GAC and VH1 Country (which is great, by the way)

Oh we still love the video, don't worry I think you may have read the wrong "mood" of our comments.
As far as the "posing" there's a point when it looks natural to where it looks staged. To some it just seemed like it was "okay time to do this and that" compared to the smooth natural progression of the movements. Also I thinks it funny, not wrong, that she's off balance in the end...especially if the others are seeing it too....I'm surprised it was left that way for the vid and not reshot...which is why i thought it would be cute to have her, after this great video, to just fall in the sand and laugh. To me that would go with her personality.

You'll find the more you're here that Debbie, Doc and I are some of the last people on earth that would comment in a disrespectful way about Shania.

If I haven't welcomed you to the board yet, Welcome!

Joni


Hi Joni - thanks for the welcome. Not to worry - my post was somewhat tongue in cheek (see my post to Debbie) and I do appreciate that everyone who loves Shania may have varying opinions.

The FAFA video was exactly what I was hoping for when I first heard the song. Agree that it was cute at the end and to fall over laughing as you suggest would be pure Shania!!
