Hi there!

This has been driving me crazy for the past few years everytime I think about it.

I remember that back in the 90's (probably '97-'98), there was a music video in which many african children were running around on the savannah painted as animals. In the end they wash off the paint in a small lake or something like that. I remember really liking that song, but unfortunately I don't know the name of the song nor the artist! Every Internet search has come up blank.

If anyone has ANY tip that could possibly help me, I would be absolutely thrilled.

Rock on,

I've been looking for the name of this song for almost a decade, but could only remember the faintest details. It feels like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders, and I don't even especially like the music anymore :D
Although the music video is rather awsome.

I cant believe so many others have pondered for the same thing as I have for a decade as well!!
The song, without any lyrics that anyone understood, was so hard to explain to anyone without reference to the music video

I must confess that I am shocked to see that there were others too like me looking for this song. It had been humming in my brain for so many years. One simple search for "music video humans painted as animals" turned up the result. Thank you!! Anyone know of a link to a good quality video version?

Hey guys, I need help. I've been looking for this music video for a very long time, but no luck :(
So, there are people painted as animals, one girl is a lion and she's climbing on the tree, it's sunset, a field, like Africa... And the song is slow, more like a ballad. The only thing I can remember is that the guy sounds like Sting, but it's not Sting. And it's not Sunchyme. Please, help me! It's from the early or middle 90s, i think.

p.s. I know, my english sucks :P

But please, PLEASE, help me!
