Intern Grace’s Team Pick:
If you are emotionally invested in the success of Tegan and Sara, you are basically morally obligated to watch the new video for “Body Works” by Morgan Page featuring everyone’s favorite Canadian lesbian indie singers. And really, what’s better than watching two talented women fold laundry for several minutes anyways?
The song itself is good, dance-y pop, and in the video, Tegan and Sara do their traditional staring-into-the-camera-slash-your-soul thing while everyone else dances at this club/gym thing around them. Also, a beefy man spins them around at one point? I don’t know, I’m just here for the haircuts and ethereal voices. The Wonder Twins aren’t even really on screen as much as one would hope, which is disappointing on several levels.
Also, because it’s technically a Morgan Page song (if you say so), you can’t quite check off all of the Definitive Elements of Every Tegan & Sara Music Video, but you can find more than half of them. It’s like Where’s Waldo but with weird Tegan faces.
It’s actually Morgan Page, he is a world renowned electro-house DJ.
Womp. I fixed it. I think this is a good indication of how little I care about the not-Tegan and Sara parts of this video. I probably should’ve caught it anyway, but still.
What I love about Tegan and Sarah is that everything they do is so unashamedly 90s
Tegan and Sara, or Change. I love you so much.
I love you forever because you understand the weird and specific jokes I make.
I prefer the weird Tegan faces! It makes it feel more like she’s talking to me and not acting.. and obviously I’m on board with that.
Who does Morgan Page think he is, Olivia Newton John?! No actually I think this video is kind of adorable and also watching Tegan and Sara get twirled around by a big muscle-y dude was kind of amazing.
Also also I freaking love watching good dancers. Mmm.
SKQ is basically the most adorable human ever.
Though I do prefer the acoustic-y, not as dancey version of this.
It’s adorable/happier/more 80’s and it’s one of my favourite Tegan and Sara tracks.
SAME. I wish they would release that.
Ditto, and for their acoustic version of “Feel It In My Bones,” which is also great. Though I suspect neither is legally theirs to release, alas.
YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!! I made a very half-hearted attempt to find this version of the song the other day and failed, so you are currently my favorite person!! :)
YES!!! another Tegan and Sara video I can obsess over
Love it, even if it did give me flashbacks to Turbo Jam and Olivia Newton John
I once shared a box of wheat thins with Sara at 3 am.
It was nice.
This video was also nice.
WHAT Are you serious?
this kinda made me laugh, in a good way
This video makes you realize how tiny they are. #tinycanadianlesbiansinmypocket
I love that they’re labeled so you can tell which is which. #realfanscantellthemapart
The extended club mix version is better.
Was bopping my head to this song. Also before I watched the video, the pictures made me think Tegan and Sara were working at the laundry department in a women’s prison… >.>
This is the best thing to ever discover while baked and drinking blackberry brandy.
