Another Example Of Sax In Pop Music

Today’s post is a comedic one. Marcellina, the Hungarian musician known for playing white, and more recently black saxophones, posted a video on her YouTube channel in December titled Andrea.

Andrea is a very quirky, and funny video, whose driving beat reminds us that Marcellina was first and foremost a pop star. The sax riff is intricately woven throughout the piece, and is Marcellina’s second voice throughout the song.

I hope Andrea makes brings a smile to your face. It did to mine. Think of it as 4+ minutes of silliness that might make you forget about your troubles.

Thank you Marcellina for this quirky piece. I hope you’re doing well, and that 2011 will be better than 2010 was for you. Best wishes…hk

  1. This is all sorts of win, and proves the long take can be very effective in a short medium like a music video. I don’t think rolling on the floor in exhaustion at the end was JUST acting. :) Sadly, this aesthetic is lost on the two-second-attention-span crowd which seems to dominate television. :mad:

    • I think Marcellina is just playing around and having fun. It’s a bit of a throw-back to the 80s actually. I’m not sure when the video was actually produced, or when the song was actually popular. I’m not sure if it’s a current single of hers. It sounds a bit more like what she did in the 8os when she was defined as pop star.

      What I really enjoy about her as a performer, is that she is a performer in the true sense of the word. Her 1 woman show is a great example of that, as is her performance while playing saxophone inverted and being moved across the audience. She has carved out a very unique niche for herself over the years in both Europe and beyond. She is a character, and her stage persona manages to come through even on the videos.
