My modus operandi for this site is that I actually don’t get out too much. I spend my free time, once the kids have gone to bed, virtually creeping other peoples’ musical social lives. I love looking at all of the wicked concert photography on Instagram. I also love feeding my music obsession via Twitter, SoundCloud, and especially YouTube. While the other “fortunate ones” are out catching the newest live shows, I am at home, most likely, watching random YouTube videos or listening to Spotify playlists.
This past weekend, in my social media music scanning, I came across the newest video from Fortunate Ones. The song, “Lay Me Down”, has become a regular on my playlists so I was pumped to see the newest visual version.
I must say, I have a weakness for any song that uses “Brother” or “Sister” in its lyrics as proper nouns. I also must say that I have a real weakness for nighttime videos, and rooftop videos. Based on these weaknesses, it would be slightly strange if I didn’t include the other music video that blew up the local internet last week. Adam Baldwin released a video to his single “Daylight”. I actually creeped various aspects of the production of this video (thanks again to social media), and, man, it looked like a fun time. An overnight, rooftop video, shot in Halifax, with Baldwin singing to his “Brother” and “Sister” about overcoming darkness.
Sold and sold.
