Mermaid Video Watch 1

Caught the Foo Fighters' "Resolve" video today – there's a mermaid in it. Got me thinking about other music videos with mermaids. Instantly recalled Madonna's "Cherish" which has got a whole bunch of sexy mermen in it tossing their hair and frolicking in the surf. Are there any other's out there? The criteria would be a merman or mermaid with the quintessential fish tail. Delta Goodrem comes close in the second verse of  "Believe Again". Her makeup and shimmery scaled body suit are gorgeous but alas she lacks the prerequisite tail and fin, which makes her a mere pretender in the mermaid world. Let us know if you come across any others, so we can compile the definitive list.

Sade's "No Ordinary Love" and "Oo-ee-diddly-bop" by I forget who. You can see screencaps of the latter on my mermaid website.

Thanks Moselle, I may also need to start a new post on mermaid appearances in movies. Good to know you're already on the job via your website!
