Popdose Video Premiere: David Paige, “Are You Ready”

Written by Music, Video Premieres

Bueller? …Bueller? …Bueller? No, David Paige.

If you’re going to trade in on Ferris Bueller’s Day Off nostalgia for your music video, it had better be in service of a song worthy of brushing the hem of John Hughes’ immaculate ’80s garment. Fortunately for David Paige, he’s got a lot more going for him than just an enthusiasm for (and apparently encyclopedic knowledge of) Matthew Broderick’s finest moment: this is one great, glittering gift of a pop song, with subtly shimmering production swirling around the hummable hooks and singalong chorus. We are ready for a full-length album of stuff like this, David — thanks for asking.
