Your Friday Music

“Midnight City,” by M83. This is also M83. A different one. One is named after the other. Guess which!
If you celebrate it, happy Good Friday. If you don’t celebrate it, have a good Friday.
Every time I hear this song, all I can think of are Victoria’s Secret models because of that damn commercial…
See, I don’t watch enough TV to have seen that commercial. So I am pure.
Well, the video was awesome. Except I feel like I only caught glimpses of a bigger story. Which makes me want to experience the part I’m missing, to get the whole story…
I would watch the crap out of that show :(
“Happy Good Friday” is very slyly funny. Thank you.
Good Friday is not a particularly happy day, but you don’t get Easter without it. Thanks for the music.
Awesome song & video. The video was free on iTunes last December, when I picked it up. (And the song was free on iTunes back in October.) I’ve gotten a lot of quality out of the “free each week”, though there’s a large variance in that “quality” curve.
I LOVED the video. If I could make the ALL CAPS appear larger for emphasis, I would. I wasn’t able to appreciate the music as much do to the poor quality of my computer speakers.
I present a dissenting opinion. The music did nothing for me and relies too heavily on the visuals for meaning and depth. The visuals may be from a TV show, but if they are I hope the show credits James Patterson’s Maximum Ride series since the sequence is exactly how that all starts out. For all I know that is what this video is based on – I haven’t had a TV since 1992, so don’t know about TV any more (and thankful for that).
You always find the coolest music videos. Thanks for sharing.
