This, this is a song, you see. No, you don’t, stop it. You don’t see a song, you listen to it.
Though this is a VIDEO for a song so you do, in fact, see it. Video killed the radio star, of course, but did Spotify kill the video star? No, it didn’t. MTV did.
Americans love to build something/someone up, tear it down, then watch it rise again. I think it’s part of our national character; a reminder that none of us are special. This goes in cycles, you see (you do!). Music was there, then Elvis made it more than just the music, then somehow everyone pretends the visual didn’t matter, then MTV reminded you all that it did, then Napster declared it didn’t, but now YouTube says it does. Which is all a long-winded way of saying enjoy the Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats – S.O.B. VIDEO (or just close your eyes if you’re bothered by our cultural reliance on the visual at the expense of the audio).
