Tags: ladyhawke, subpar videos that are saved by awesome music
NOTICE: there is a floating creature in the lower left. correct.
I am a huge fan of this ‘internet balloon race’ …. you could win shit… or something. i don’t really know. anyway, i kind of like the cute animal. it will be here for a few days… or weeks… something.
I had to put this up to exemplify the fact that a music video can be ANYTHING. All that hinges on the success of said music video is the quality of the song. Subpar videos that are saved by awesome music, if you will.
take note: the same cannot be said about a shitty song combined with an awesome video.
disclaimer: I love Ladyhawke.
You may have heard an extremely catchy track featuring the voice of a female in my last mixtape. Modular Chris sent this tonight and I just had to smile about it. Ladyhawke’s ‘Paris is Burning’ is a highly solid track on its own merit. The same cannot be said about the music video featuring our favorite lady walking through various stages of events….
1. out the back door of a club, in an alley
2. battling drunk hobo in said alley
3. through a pillow fight
4. through a welding shop
5. finally ending up at prom with confetti
This just does nothing for me…. HOWEVER. It did EVERYTHING for me because the song is so good.
Think what you will, but it is my new mission to make shitty music videos over the best tracks I come across, and the magic of the sounds will prevail.
update: jason has informed me that he told Pip that her first cut of the video sucked. Upon hearing this, she promptly re-uploaded a new video. So this is actually version two. do any of you creepy e-stalking ladyhawke lovers have a saved flv? …. i mean, i’m sure it’s out there…. it’s not like i saved the rough cut of D.A.N.C.E. or anything…..
