VIDEO: Beyonce's "Sweet Dream"

Aside from the bizarre, gold body armor at the end, the video isn't half bad. The beat is what's interesting. It starts off sounding—maybe because of the current musical climate—like a "Beat It" homage, while also sounding similar to another song she's recorded...that I can't quite remember the name of.

The lyrical content also had me hooked. I feel like it's perfect for Twilight. lol Is it just me?
"You can be a sweet dream or a beautiful nightmare / Either way, I don't want to wake."

Does that not sound like something Bella would say? lol

Oh and I can't finish this post without commenting on the odd dance style that she's adopted here. I feel like in certain areas the reel is being rewinded or fast-forwarded to seem faster than she can actually dance, and in other areas she just has a more violent rhythm that's like girly crunk. Maybe it's just me. Either way, I like it. It's a nice break from the "sexual" gyrations of Ciara. Check it out:
