Posted:We have an article about movies with poi/staff in it...what about clips to songs?

I know one. I did know two but I've forgotten the second one. ubblol

Over The Hills & Far Away by Nightwish has breathing, eating and spinning (not sure if it's staff or poi).

So does anyone know any song clips with firetwirling in them?

Cheers,

Posted:Boys of Summer by DJ Sammy has Fire poi in it.

But then again its not his song, its a cover.

He should write his own goddamn songs.
All you ever see on mainstream music nowadays is covers

Posted:you mean this *ahem*runasearch* one? wink

I can't stand dancing in the moonlight, I'm not a violent person but it just makes me want to punch the singer in the nuts, almost as much as I wanted to the guy who was playing celine dion songs on the pan pipes in town on saturday!!

has a song 'catch my disease' with a subliminal moment of what may very possibly be poi.. plus a fair bit of hoop and some definite contact moves with a basketball.

Anway it's a nice song and Ben Lee's a nice chap so it's worth a peep in any case....
