    The same thing happened to me. A guy on my other forum made a comment about how the guy's face during the lyric "..free.." was priceless.

    She's either playing everybody or she has some serious issues.
    The great Jo Stafford had a goof duet with her husband. They recorded and were out of tune; time; etc. Dunno the name, Jonathan Schwartz used to play them before he was offed...

I write all my music, as well as direct and edit music videos. I am currently living abroad in England for a Master of Science in Sociology at the University of Oxford. I received my B.A. in Sociology from UC Berkeley, with Highest Honors, and a minor in History.

    My musical journey began when my poetry began coming to me with accompanying melodies. Then, I began to dream every night of playing the guitar. On my birthday, I got a guitar and proceeded to teach myself both guitar and piano. My mission is to write socially conscious music to promote compassion and introspection through different perspectives in musical and visual content.
    Eeeew. Toe-curling. Horrible song too.

    Stay in school, Sarah. There's hope---in a WAY different field...

    I have to go with door #1. We're being played. I don't understand how someone could sacrifice their dignity for views, but that's what I think she's doing.

    She went from 100 subscribers to over 700 in 2 days and and has over 1/4 of a million views on that "Red Dress" video. I think we helped her.

    Darlene and Jonathan Edwards (aka Paul Weston). Their take on "Stayin' Alive" is unforgettable:

    Forget about Ronnie, that's George Van Eps sitting behind Jo Stafford! Pity he's cut off at the end after Rosemary Clooney's appearance.

    Thanks for the clip, one I've never come across before.

    There is a joke about singers (variation on how mane people you need to put in a new bulb)

    So you need just one singer.. he/she would put the the bulb to the lamp socket. And as the world rotates around the singer, the bulb will screw in by itself.

    This one comes to mind A Musical Joke - Wikipedia

    When listening to it, something sure seems off, but you need a certain sophistication to understand why it’s bad.

    No idea about the red dress thing but I’m hoping for a great reveal some day… an art project perhaps.

    Oh, there is a reveal, kind of…

    Red Dress song: Divisive pop video '''did what it set out to do''' - BBC News

    She admitted to the BBC that she is "no professional singer".She added: "The style in which I sing the song was important because it reflected the story.

    "The vocals don't seem to quite fit, they seem out of place and they make people uncomfortable... and the video is this outsider doing things differently and causing discomfort and eliciting all this judgement."”

    So... a stunt? And by any measure, a successful one? Bravo!

    It’s performance art:

    “My mission is to create socially conscious media to promote compassion and introspection through different perspectives. I also seek to cultivate a certain style of filmmaking: 'holistic video production.' This means that the audience experiences the media's theme not just visually, but also in other dimensions, such as audibly. Red Dress, for example, is a 'holistic portrayal of judgment.' The vocals are out of place, just like the character is out of place as she is met with exclusion from the church insiders, judging her in the pews. Moreover, the vocals being out of place invites the real-world audience to judge just like the church goers. Hence, the real-world audience is brought into the church pews of judgment, partaking in the theme, creating a holistic video experience.”

    If her intention from the start was to sing-as-she-did to cause discomfort related to how a red-dress can cause discomfort to conservative \ church going folks, my hat is off to her. But this theme was done by Hollywood a few times;

    Check out the 1938 Bette Davis film Jezebel; one key scene in this film is that she wears a red-dress to a formal southern social, knowing this will upset everyone (especially her boyfriend up tight Henry Fonda). She does so for those very reasons! (oh and the film is in black and white but the scene is so well done by Davis and director William Wyler, that one doesn't need to see RED to feel all the tension created).

    She's from LA. Red Dress was a good career move.

    She said her work was a "cinematic, holistic portrayal of judgement".
