Music video[edit]

The music video for "Bouncing off Clouds" is a variation of the music video for "Big Wheel", a slide show of photographs taken by Blaise Reutersward for Amos' album, American Doll Posse. This music video uses slightly different images of Amos, interspersed with images of clouds. The music video was released to Yahoo! music on October 3, 2007.[3] As with "Big Wheel", a contest was held for a fan-made video of "Bouncing Off Clouds" with Epic/Sony providing green screen footage of Amos playing on a Rhodes piano and a Wurlitzer.


The sole ranking for "Bouncing off Clouds" was placing at #50 on the Italian Top 50 Downloads chart.[4] The single failed to chart on either the Billboard Hot 100 in the U.S. nor the UK Singles Chart. It had no physical release.
