I was very excited today to find the video for "You Made Me Realise" by My Bloody Valentine on Youtube. I can remember seeing this video in 1988 and being extremely scared of the sound of "indie music". It's still a scary song!
I have developed a problem when I see the "Ladyflash" video by Go! team on MTV2. Every time it comes on, I start crying! This is very disturbing, since I have listened to the song dozens of time in my "listening area" with no ill effect. it has happened three times now and I am worried. Field tests are going on, because I think this might be sinister. I tried watching it in Realplayer, but that didn't make tears come out. All I know is this:
1. It features a lot of bright and pleasing strobing colours
2. There are some drumkits
3. And a plane
4. Also cheerful dancing
(point 1 seems the most important)
I am not a habitual crier, even at the saddest things, so my final conclusion is that I am going senile. I am going to form a support group of similar weeping imbeciles.
