Music Video of the Day: The Last Goodbye by David Cook (2011, dir by Nigel Dick)

Don’t worry, everyone, David Cook’s alright!

Incidentally, I was one of the few members of my family to vote for David Cook over David Archuleta.  I worried that Archuleta was just too young to be burdened with the title of American Idol and I stand by that decision.


Music Video of the Day: Don’t Say You Love Me by M2M (1999, dir by Nigel Dick)

Why exactly this chirpy tribute to abstinence was included on the Pokemon soundtrack is anyone’s guess.  Apparently, M2M had never heard of Pokemon until they were told that their song was going to play during the film’s end credits.  They were also not happy to learn when they were told that they would have to change some of the lyrics to make the song Pokemon-appropriate.  “You start kissing me, what’s that about?” was changed to “You said you love me, what’s that about?”

I’m not a huge fan of this song, as you may have picked up on.  But I do think the video is kind of cute.  Maybe it’s just because I wish there was a drive-in near my house.  Who knows?


Music Video of the Day: Smile by Katy Perry (2020, dir by Matthew Cullen)

We could all take a lesson from Katy Perry.  Get out there and enjoy life, despite all of the people who are determined to keep others from doing just that.  We live in a world where some people are addicted to spreading misery and, fortunately, Katy Perry is not one of those people.


Music Video of the Day: Madam by Aidan (2022, dir by ????)

This music video has a retro feel to it that I like.  It’s like an old film about one of those wonderfully sordid wedding ceremonies that rich people have on the Isle of Capri.  All that’s missing is Fernando Rey smoking a cigarette.
