Good Girl (Music Video) – Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood has just released the music video for Good Girl (check out the lyrics and my review) and she looks absolutely stunning in it. Playing both good and bad girl, she waltzes through impeccable art direction, many outfit changes and, as I’ve mentioned before, turns up her sex appeal a few notches.

With hints here and there, be it through the dresses or through the flowers (which are a constant fixture in three of her album covers), Carrie is also passing on a subtle meaning that she is moving on to a different direction: the character pulls off the petals from the daisy that was present on the cover of both Play On and her first album Some Hearts.

Some are calling it her best music video yet. Regardless of what your preference may be, this is one of her best, without a doubt. In fact, the professionalism of this video is giving me hope that this album round will not be another color by number era for Underwood. She’s actually trying her best to make it count – and it clearly shows.

The video is also very fast paced, similarly to the song, making it quite fitting and it will surely help Good Girl to become a bigger hit than it already is. And with Underwood hinting that it may soon rival Before He Cheats as her biggest hit, this video will contribute to any crossover attempt the label may be working for.

Without further ado, I present Good Girl:

  4. I agree with you. This is a new and even better Carrie and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us on this album.

  5. First, the first is great, with so many amazingly beautiful shots of Carrie, yet she still has fun with her “good girl” character (twirling hair, glasses, dancing clumsily, etc.). Second, the world can see that Carrie has gained even more confidence and comfort with her sex appeal as she grows up before our eyes – and importantly, Carries seems to have gone to the next level in terms of power/growl vocals, sexier outfits, and overal maturity since getting married – there is a distinct bridge between pre-marriage Carrie and post-marriage Carrie… she seems in a great place personally which has given her the green light to do what she wants. Thirdly, for some reason I wish she would not wear that “black fishnet face veil” in her videos… it covers her face and makes her look like she going to a funeral (aka Just A Dream video)… just a minor gripe. Just like the hit song “Good Girl” the video gets better and better with each viewing as you can pause the frames and really see so many small artistic choices that were made to make this a visual juggernaut. Frankly, Carrie may be one of the few music artists today where here videos are not just videos but EVENTS that fans and the world savor for years to come. Lastly, I think its cute that Carrie’s dancing will never change too much as even as her performing skills keep advances us fans can still see her somewhat innocent/basic dance steps still in tack… dont’ ever change those subtle reminders of the grace and poise you possess – bravo!! Now, give us an retro-country song next time… I would love to see her cover “Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On” – she sounded so great doing that song live at Opry last year.. it really brought the house down!!
