The Rich Girls Are Weeping

11 August 2006

I knew I would miss something whilst I was ill. Namely, the video for the first single off the Mountain Goats' Get Lonely, "Woke Up New." Directed by Rian Johnson (Brick), it's a gorgeous little film, full of ingenious camera trickery, that compliments the song wonderfully. Also note that bassist Peter Hughes is wearing all his favorite suits therein. We approve!

Not only a cool video, but that is one of the sweetest, saddest songs I've ever heard. The first time I heard it I cried, and my wife called me a wussy.

Thanks for your comment, Cindy. Much appreciated, although I haven't really got going on the new page yet. Hopefully it'll get better. Been a fan of this blog for a while now. Nice and eclectic. You never know what you might find here. Keep up the good work.

Coincidentally, the link to my blog needs fixing. There appears to be two https. Thanks for linking me anyway.
