TONI PEAREN : In Your Room
Given there’s no sign ANYWHERE of the video for ‘Walkaway Lover’, we suppose that Toni Pearen’s debut single ‘In Your Room’ will suffice. Director to Toni : “Okay, whack this blue fishtail dress on and pretend to dance like you’re doing a cross between synchronised swimming and treading water”. Toni complies. Result. To be honest, the entire clip’s got more hand movements than a Swiss watch factory and some pretty dodgy early ’90s fashion. But underlying it all is a great track written by Leiber/Shanks/Shipley that still holds up well 18 years after the fact.
