"Mixed Up World" is a song by British singer-songwriter Sophie Ellis-Bextor, released in 2003 as the first single from her second studio album, Shoot from the Hip. It peaked at #7 on the UK Singles Chart. It was considered somewhat of a success. The single includes an easy-listening, chillout B-side, called "The Earth Shook the Devil's Hand". The video for the song features various dancers wearing a mix of bright and dark colours. It also features men in bowler hats as Sophie moves between giant black and white punctuation marks. It was directed by Rupert Jones. It was the first video that shows Sophie's blonde hairstyle. A short clip from the video was featured in an ad on Australia's VH1 channel in June 2006. "Mixed Up World" sold 35,000 copies in the United Kingdom.[1]
