VIDEO O' THE WEEK: "MERCY STREET"

Ah, the choices... so many videos, so little time!

I chose "MERCY STREET", from Peter Gabriel, because I not only find it to be one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded, but the video is also one of my absolute favorites. Taking a completely different direction than most of the videos from Peter's hit album, SO, this clip is shot in black and white, and has a very minimalist perspective.

The song, itself, was inspired by the poet, Anne Sexton.

Enjoy... I know I did.

Oooooh, I'd forgotten how pretty that one was.

Thanks for the reminder!

His music is beautiful. I bet he's a real nut-job, tho, y'know? Dunno why I perceive that... I think maybe dating Rosanna Arquette just, y'know, makes that so. LOL
