Lisa Stansfield – “Taken Around the World”

Lisa Stansfield, Taken, Liam Neeson, mashups, experimental video, comedy, funny

One of my favorite things about the early 90’s were music videos for songs from a soundtrack. A classic example of this is Case’ “Touch Me, Tease Me” which shoehorns clips from the Nutty Professor in the most hamfisted way imaginable. So in an attempt to recreate this phenomenon I decided to mashup Lisa Stansfield’s 1989 hit “All Around the World” with the 2008 Liam Neeson film Taken. The only thing that ties these two things together are the search for Stansfield’s and Neeson’s respective babies, but that’s fun right? Who really wants something that matches exactly? Not me. That’s who.
