To be honest, the main reason that I picked this for today’s music video of the day is because Erin and I both love this song and it’s one that we’ve both listened to several times of the past few months. (When you’re basically stuck inside for the majority of the year, you really do come to appreciate good music.) Add to that, this song always makes me think of my sister, even if she isn’t listening to it with me. The sun is beautiful and so is she. As I always say, one of the best things about being involved with TSL is that I get to work with my sister. She’s always been there for me. She’s always put up with me, even when I was at my worse. I don’t know where I’d be without her.
This, of course, is a cover of a Beatles song. If you think you spotted The Cure’s Robert Smith in this video, you are correct. At the time this song was recorded (and this video made), Robert Smith was temporarily a member of the band. This video was filmed in Venice, which is a wonderful city that I hope I get to once again visit with everyone who I care about.
Oh hell yeah! That’s more of a reaction to the sound of the song than to the song’s message, which is kind of depressing.
Seriously, we all know the feeling, right? Judging from this video, Courtney is actually inside of someone’s brain and reminding them that everybody here hates them. Everyone has felt that way at some point in their life. Of course, to be honest, I’d rather be disliked than unknown or ignored. Of course, I’d rather be loved than disliked. I want people to be scared of how much they love me.
Anyway, this is a good song and a good video and it’ll get stuck in your head and you’ll hear it every time you start to feel insecure about something.
