5IVE : When The Lights Go Out
When Five’s (5ive’s) debut single ‘Slam Dunk (Da Funk)’ tanked in Australia, failing to make the top 50 singles chart, many predicted the British five piece would slowly fade into pOp oblivion. But the truth was, they were just getting started, and ‘When The Lights Go Out’, their second single, was the first in a string of top ten successes for the band in Australia. Only two of their Aussie-released singles failed to reach a top ten position. But back to ‘When The Lights Go Out’… The clip features a sexy young voyeuristic minx sitting in what looks like a technically modified dentist’s chair in order to catch a glimpse of each of the five young pop specimens. And it’s not one particular member of the all singing, all dancing five-piece that she seems interested in – she seems to like them all equally. They disbanded in 2001 before attempting an unsuccessful comeback last year as a foursome… Seems someone obviously failed to do the math.
