It’s been a perfect chillout weekend. Most of the time the only music was the wind and sound of waves. And right at the end of it, while enjoying the last cup of coffee there was this track which seemed to fit right in. And so it becomes the song of the week :)
Some people are weird.. This guy put out a song – which is quite ok in my view – and then made another version where the “fuck” was replaced with “forget”. All this while the song is about a girl who is after his money, cheating him and so on. Forget you? No, come on, fuck you is the right way!
Byron is an artist I followed since about ten years ago, since he was playing with Kumm and Urma. Since 2006 he started the byron project and they released four albums so far. This year they are releasing their fifth, and this is special :).
“Live Underground” is a DVD that was filmed with the band playing live in the Turda salt mine. This is one of the most famous salt mines in Romania, a popular touristic place and a location considered to have great acoustics. Dan, the lead singer of byron, recently gave an interview where he explained in more detail how the show was filmed – it’s quite interesting and you can find it here (Romanian version only).
For their album release, which is going to happen of 3rd of May in Silver Church in Bucharest, the band asked the bloggers to imagine and propose a scenario to record a video for one of the band’s songs. So I thought of two of them, both of them related to the salt mine – even though I’m not so sure the guys will want to go back there :)
- first of all, I think the Zeitgeist song would fit great. The salt mine gives the impresion of a labirinth and can easily serve as setting for a prison, work camp or such. It would be a powerful video for Zeitgeist to simulate the manipulations and some of the oppresions typical for a work camp, some of them relating with the lyrics of Zeitgeist. Listen to the song for yourselves below
- another song, which I am quite fond of, is Ochii Tai. Listening to this and picturing the band playing it in the salt mine, one of the video ideas I thought of was the a boy, chasing a girl in the dark, seeing only her eyes. As I said before, the salt mine looks like a labirinth, so again the setting is there. This is one of the very few songs the band sings in Romanian and I think it deserves a video of its own :). The song is below.
What do you think? Which byron song would you like to see in a video and what would be the scenario?
