Ben Falk, the director of “Lay Me Down”, recently talked to Asylum Films about Pixie and the concept of the video.
“Pixie told us she wanted the video to evoke the glamour of Brigitte Bardot. What better place to do that, than the Cote D’Azur? The light, the sea and the surroundings were exactly what was required.
“Bardot’s life contained as much anguish as happiness and we were keen to look at the sadness behind her smile. To do this we portrayed Pixie as a lonely actress, isolated by her fame despite the beauty and apparent romance of her surroundings”.
JeA, one of the members of the most successful South Korean girl group Brown Eyed Girls, has covered Pixie’s song “Everybody Hurts Sometimes”. Listen to her version below.
Pixie’s debut single “Mama Do (Uh Oh, Uh Oh)” was released exactly 5 years ago, on June 3rd, 2009.
The song was a huge hit in Europe: it debuted at number one in the UK, reached top 10 in 4 countries (Hungary, France, Denmark) and top 30 in 13 countries (inc. Germany, Spain, Netherlands).
“Mama Do” is still her most successful song in Europe and her only single which charted in Australia.
To celebrate this anniversary, watch the video of Pixie’s “Mama Do” performance on ‘Dancing with the Stars’ in Australia below.
