It’s not that I don’t enjoy Patti Smith. It’s just that she’s one of those artists that I just never got around to “getting into”. However, this video above, absolutely rocks. It’s Patti Smith, in 1979, on some kids television show called “Kids Are People Too”. She sings “You Light Up My Life”. Seriously. She sings “You Light Up My Life”.
This is U2’s new video for “Window in the Skies”. Kind of a videographic mashup. A great idea for a video, and pretty well executed. I often wonder how things like this come together. I mean, like the nuts and bolts of it, after the “hey, here’s a neat idea!” stage. You know, the “okay, now we need a two-second clip of somebody plucking a bass” stage. “Anybody know of a clip where the drummer drums to this beat?”
