Awesome Old Song of the Week: "The Promise of a New Day" by Paula Abdul

Paula Abdul's second album, Spellbound, was most well known for the song Rush Rush.  That video featured Keanu Reeves still sporting his "Bill and Ted" haircut, and cars driving off a cliff in an awesome 1950's game of chicken.  But if you ask me, The Promise of a New Day was a way cooler song.  The video stirred up some controversy in 1991 because it was squished together a little bit during editing, making Paula look taller and thinner than she really was; kind of like the episode of Seinfeld where the store tricks Elaine into buying a dress with "skinny mirrors."  Fortunately I was able to look past that and still enjoy it.  The waterfall seen in particular was pretty entertaining for 14 year old me.
