Importing my Romeo + Juliet CD to iTunes today, for the sake of having Garbage’s #1 Crush in my library (arguably Garbage’s second best song… right after Parade but certainly above Push it), I noted the presence of Kym Mazelle’s Young Hearts Run Free. Remember that song? The video clip was essentially cut straight from the movie, featuring Mercutio (in drag) performing the song at the Capulet’s masquerade shindig.
Years later I saw the real film clip featuring the real Kym Mazelle. What the hell? If she were deformed or maybe a few hundred pounds overweight I might understand the movie’s Publicity Director’s motives for not including her in the original film clip… but unless my memory is totally stunted and unless the photo on this page lies, she fine!
