Does anyone not tear up when watching Sinead sing “Nothing Compares 2 U“? Seriously, anyone? She must have been in the midst of a serious heart break when she recorded that one. Either that or she is a master at conveying misery. Videography masterpiece – bringing you closer to the subject by putting her head at the size it would be if you were talking quietly to her in person.
Massive Attack’s video for “Teardrop” took my breath away when I first saw – captures the fragility of the song perfectly. Heartbeat drum kick – of course! Depth of field with floaties
Bruce Springsteen hasn’t done much that I’ve become engaged in, but his video for “Streets of Philidelphia” grabbed me right away. Singing it live in the video adds to the heartfelt grittiness of it. Love it, love it, love it!
