Sounding like Martha Reeves and looking like James Brown - that's a hell of a combination.

And the joy of Wendy Morgan's video for Janelle Monáe's Tightrope is how the slightly weird and surreal - with a tribute to a recent Yeasayer video - sits comfortably with a compelling song and dance performance. Superb.
