Simply Red – Fairground

“Fairground” is a 1995 single released by Simply Red from the album Life. The song contains a sample of The Goodmen’s “Give It Up”. The video shows Mick Hucknall driving to and singing at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in Blackpool, Lancashire, that had been closed for the day and had been invaded by a group of his friends and opened up again. The majority of the video was shot on the Pepsi Max Big One and around the park, and some scenes are shot on the Promenade showing the Illuminations in 1994. Filming credits go to the single cameraman, Steven Young.
