The DVD includes the documentary "Return To Oz" directed by Julien Temple. It tells the Scissor Sisters story with never seen before early footage of Scissor Sisters performing on the New York club circuit, the band meeting Bono and recording in the studio with Kylie. There is also a separate 10 minute 4play film piece directed by Andy Soup which has the band dressed up as characters from the Wizard Of Oz. (Click here to purchase the DVD at Amazon.)

George Michael "Round Here" Video

Scene from "Round Here"

The release of George Michael's "Round Here" passed by without many people noticing. In fact, the single is Michael's second worse performing single. The only other single to have charted lower was "Cowboys & Angels," which reached #45 in the European pop chart back in 1991. "Round Here" is the third single taken from the singer's 2004 album "Patience."

The poor sales have been blamed on a lack of airplay and advertising, as well the delayed release. I'd like to add to this list the very sleepy and tedious video for the song (that is mediocre to begin with). I guess Sony did not have any budget left after the videos for "Amazing" and "Flawless." On top of this, I wonder if music stations still play videos that are over 5 minutes long.

The "Round Here" video shows George singing in a recording studio interspersed with grainy home video style footage of his London childhood haunts.

Stream the entire video at Launch UK/Ireland (free registration required), or watch a clip of the video.
