Today’s music video of the day is Feel It by Jakalope, one of my favorite Canadian bands!
I’m a huge fan of both this song and this video. The song, which was co-written by Trent Reznor, first appeared on Jakalope’s debut album, It Dreams. It Dreams was also co-produced by Reznor and perhaps it’s appropriate that the video itself is reminiscent of some of the videos that Mark Romanek directed by Nine Inch Nails.
(The video itself was directed by Lisa Mann and graphic artist Vincent Marcone, aka My Pet Skeleton.)
One of the great things about being a fan of Degrassi is that it’s exposed to me Canadian bands, like Jakalope. In fact, from season 4 through 7, Jakalope performed the show’s famous theme song. As for Feel It, it can be heard in Ghost In The Machine, the premiere episode of Degrassi’s fourth season.
In fact, the entire fourth season was full of great music! In particular, Islands in the Stream, the season’s 6th episode, featured a beautiful song called Pretty People, which was performed by the Robber Who Robbed The Town. I have searched and searched and I have yet to find Pretty People ANYWHERE! Seriously, it is sooooo frustrating!
Oh well. At least I have Feel It…
