The Beautiful Ones

I was clicking through my dandy 4th Gen iPod when I accidentally clicked on a Suede song and just like that, memories of years passed come crashing in. Suede is one of the 4 bands that brought out the obsessive, full on "posters-on-the-wall, magazine-clipping, squeal-like-you-mean-it" fangirl in me. [What were the other 3 bands, you ask? The other two being New Kids On The Block (Admit it! You were a fan too!), Alice In Chains and Interpol. More on Interpol later!]

So, anyway, after listening to a couple of songs, I knew I had to get online to see what the band is up to and maybe take a peak at some photos while I was at it. They ARE the beautiful ones, after all and I wondered if they have aged gracefully. (Hehehe!)

Suede was the soundtrack of my teens. I molested their songs and devoured their videos like a rabid little hamster. Below, you can find 2 of my favorite videos. I guess, in a way, they paved the way to my decade long Web Design and Graphic Arts career, having made my first fansite during the good old Geocities/Angelfire days.

I just have to say, Neil Codling was so pretty during those years. His perfectly disheveled hair and careless handsome looks would make Dorian Gray envious. His absolute gorgeousness is captured at its epitomy, in my humble opinion, in the "Lazy" video. And how cute is Richard Oakes in that video? I have forgotten that awesome jumping scene. Classic. Ah! Good times...

"And if your baby's going crazy,
That's how you made me..."
