Adele – Someone Like You (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 30th, 2011 by Hyphen

While I’m standing by my earlier pick for song of the year, this has to be right up there. Toss in a black and white video shot in Paris that complements the song nicely (letting it star on its own) and I’m all in.

Instant classic from arguably the best voice we have in music right now.

Bambu – Something (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on April 10th, 2011 by Hyphen

Damn, can’t front…this was a tough video to watch.  Bambu’s remake of Adele’s incredible “Someone Like You” record takes a strong look at domestic abuse, particularly that emanating from the hip-hop community, and the visuals pull no punches.

As someone who can’t fathom even arguing with a significant other, I don’t understand how anyone can let a situation get to that point.  At the same time, I realize that I’ve lived a lucky life and every aspect of the nature/nurture of my upbringing has been fairly privileged.  For those who haven’t been as lucky, I hope nothing in your life ever drives you to this type of violence.  If it happened in your family, break the cycle.
