Covid Island Discs
Week 50 Video Playlist Summary
This week has some really good videos in it. The three videos that make my video shortlist are:
- Love Story, Taylor Swift
- She Moves in her own way, The Kooks
- To the Island, Crowded House
To be frank the video that goes with the Doors song “Riders on the storm” is also pretty good, especially if you like the idea of a long car journey on US interstate highways, but I can’t really shortlist more than half the play list can I?
“Love Story” is just a very well shot video and of course Taylor Swift in it looks stunning. “She moves her own way” is also an interesting video for it nicely captures the life of a rock band on the road, with some interesting hotel and travel scenes all shot while the lead singer, Luke Pritchard, sings out the words of this song in his distinctive Northern English accent.
Yet the video that gets my vote this week is the Crowded House song, “To the island”. Given this song was only released last month, it has all the quality of a modern video production with some really great imagery, although the dancing of the guy who is dressed in the white suit, leaves a little bit to be desired 😎.
