Saturday Music Links

Because if I don’t take a break from obsessing about Wisconsin my freakin’ head is going to explode.

Whiskey Lullaby is a few years old now, and possibly still my favourite music video of all time. Directed by and starring Rick “Ricky” Schroeder, the video provides a complimentary visual expansion of the story presented by the lyrics without dumbing anything down. And of course you can’t go wrong with music by Alison Kraus and Brad Paisley.

If Whiskey Lullaby is my favourite video, then Such Great Heights by The Postal Service is a close second. If you just watch it casually it’s beautifully shot nonsense that doesn’t have anything to do with the song. But listen carefully. It’s a song about quiet longing for a relationship with someone you already know, like a co-worker. See where I’m going? Watch it again.
