Video Review: S Club 7 "Never Had A Dream Come True"

Gusts of snow fall over the mountains, covering the screen in a sheet of white. Jo, bundled up in her coat, wanders on the stage. Rachel stays in the background while Hannah smiles. Rachel looks down, holding her coat close to her chest.

Flecks of snow pass through the screen as Jo, Rachel and Hannah stand in the coats and boots. Tina and Rachel smile for the camera. Through the icicle, Jo sings. Snow fills the screen as the young women of the group shuffle their feet.

With Jo in front, the full group stands together with the young men put in the back. The young men get their own individual section. Hannah smiles again. Rachel and Tina sing together.

Amidst the falling snow, Jo stands in her white sleeveless top.

The clear mountain top is washed out by the snowfall. Jo and Hannah sing as the icicles divide their faces. Streaks of ice cover Hannah. The young men are seen in their individual shot. Jo stands to the side by herself while Hannah, Tina and Rachel joke. Jo puts her arm around Rachel. Jo and Hannah sing, unobstructed by the blizzard. Jo puts her arm around Tina. The young women join together and sing.

In an individual shot, Hannah sings in an ice blue sleeveless top while Rachel wears a silvery tank top and Tina, a white tube top. Hannah looks off into the distance, peeved but then admires Jo.

The group stands together with Jo waiting for the call to cut.

Rating: 0/5

The onslaught of white, which covers the group matched with shimmery beige of the young women’s clothing, is similar to a whiteout. At times, the screen is covered completely while at others, it as bright as a fog light on a vehicle. The only person who gets constant visibility is Jo, who sings lead on the single.

Tina and Hannah go along with being relegated to the background. Rachel, though, rotates her arms back and forth every so often. The young men, though, are discounted. They are only featured together with little bonding time.

With the group separated by gender, it does hint at the dynamics between the young women. Tina and Rachel seem close. Hannah maintains the peace. Jo can only stand Hannah, who looks up to her. Jo does try to get the young women together but its similar to a disliked manager buddying up to her employees. Jo may be the lead but Rachel has the savoir faire.
