I’ve been listening to the radio a lot lately. I need a soundtrack for my anxiety when I’m supposedly making life happen in that awful rotten romantic comedy way. I heard the opening chords of this song and memories of the video with Juliette Lewis flooded my brain. DIGRESSION: That was the downside of the advent of the video, right? That some director’s vision (or even worse, a record label) would take over our own individual interpretations of a pop song. I have to acknowledge that some visions are so powerful that they are worthy of being remembered. Is this a bad thing?
Back to the video. Lewis was in an insane asylum, overwhelmed with gut wrenching despair. She conveyed isolation and depression very very well. And when Etheridge sings ‘I don’t care what they think/I don’t care what they say/what do they know about this love anyway’…….gulp.
