Boyzone have never been among the playlisted bands in my life. In fact, I've never given them much thought at all beyond 'bleurgh'.
Today though, I am pretty happy and surprised with them, their management and their video direction/writing people. They have broken new pop ground by allowing openly gay band member, Stephen Gately, to play a romantic story line with a man in their new video*.
Yay for progressive pappy pop videos - this might be enough to make me watch it on You Tube.
As seen in the Guardian.
*previously he was always forced to play alongside women - despite his audience being, if not fully aware then inclined to believe, that he was gay.
