My Favorite Music Video

Music videos can be awesome. They combine musical and visual stimulation—a double dose of pleasure. This music video by Ramona Falls must be the best music video in the world. It fuses content and style in a most incredible way. It gives me goosebumps when I watch it, especially right when the bird man starts walking with the shotgun. Watch it full screen with the music turned up! I am currently reading "musicophilia" by neurologist Oliver Sachs. In it he talks about musical synesthesia—a brain condition that allows people to see and/or feel color when they hear music. I almost feel wonderfully synesthetic when I watch this video.

This is a great example of visual language and storytelling.
