SFF Music Video of the Week - #109
Let's watch this one before I talk about it.
Here is "Only You" by Little Mix and Cheat Codes from 2018.
This one seems a little sad on the surface (especially given the song is about after a break-up), but I choose to interpret it as a beginning, not an ending. I can see our heroine spending many more hours at beaches, around dusk, when most people have left, and spending quiet quality time with her partner. You can see that neither wants to be apart - but they must be, at least for a little while.
Let's rewind a little though - what just happened there? Why do they need to be apart?
The way I see it, the chlorinated pool water could not have been good for something adapted to the sea, so it would have done quite some harm - and getting them out again would only have stopped things getting worse. You can see that they are in great pain after being lifted from the pool. To allow them to heal, actual seawater would be needed - and so our hero got them there, and is prepared to never see them again.
And you know my views on that, especially given Little Mix's history on diversity.
