The Black Eyed Peas, With Art Direction By Lisa Frank

Oct 13th, 2009 // 2 Comments

Apparently taking their visual cues from both the later entrants in the Star Wars series and the Trapper Keepers that Stacy Ferguson toted around the Kids Incorporated set back in the day, the Black Eyed Peas have released a CGI-filled (unembeddable) video for “Meet Me Halfway,” the third single from their album The E.N.D. One wonders if this song’s path to the top is as inevitable as previously thought, as the iTunes Store right now is selling the full-length for the reduced price of $7.99—but then again, radio programmers seem to have a bit of a thing for the vocal stylings of Ms. Fergalicious when she’s in “balladeer” mode, so expect to hear this track a lot at your local Walgreen’s by the time that Halloween candy goes on deep discount.

  1. As for the Cyndi Lauper insinuations, this song has the sa,e chord progression as “Time After Time” in the verses. But the chorus also lifts, I think, a short but memorable hook from “When You Were Young” by the Killers.

  2. BC

    the hook you refer to is also straight from Time After Time (between the first chorus and the second verse of Cyndi's original version)
