I don’t normally post music videos (ooh-whee, all this goddamn cyber-Capitalistic expansion)…
…but then this is barely any substandard music video; dialogue-driven & adroit with dramatic irony. It’s close to pitch-perfect for social/interpersonal relevance alone. I found myself realising that with age it’s easier to forbodingly map out the grand design of any relationship from it’s dawn to it’s doom, and the human casualty. I think this piece illustrates that on behalf of many.
Gnarls Barkley – Who’s Gonna Save My Soul?
Link to ‘The Odd Couple’ LP in the reasonably monumental 7 Months Into 2008 post where it was awarded Your Mum’s Album of The Year.
Video: Who’s Gonna Save My Soul [Uncensored]
Gnarls Barkley, in terms of creativity in the current mainstream landscape, are just paranormal beings altogether. They’ve managed to follow up their mesmeric Afro-Bollywood visual for ‘Going On’ (previous frontrunner for video of the year) with another jewel in the crown. Video of the year for one of the songs of the year from the album of the year? I think they have my undying groupie love at this point.
Directed by Chris Milk (Kanye’s ‘Jesus Walks’ and ‘Touch The Sky’, Gnarl’s Barkley’s ‘Gone Daddy Gone’, U2 & Green Day’s ‘The Saints Are Coming’).
I pretty much dedicate this to no female, ever.
