Shots and Silence

September 21st, 2012 · 7 Comments

Just saw the video for Bobaflex’s cover of “The Sound of Silence.” I’m a little torn on what to think.

The tune, which I’ve heard many times and really dig, is just flat out awesome. But the video? I don’t know…

I’ve never been much of a lyrics guy, so I don’t know… perhaps there IS something in the lyrics that points towards this. I’ve read them, but I think I’m missing something.

What’s your take?

    Oh… one nice thing about reading the lyrics? You get to find out that there’s nothing about a “naked dinosaur…”

    I know this song well and have always liked it, even though Garfunkel seemed creepy to me when I was a kid. As for this video? I’m not much for videos. All about interpretation dude. It suits the times and the mentality of the current generation.

    And … um… naked dinosaur? What the hell? I don’t really want to watch the thing again do I? The other thing I was looking at - Is that a dude or chick in really bad make-up on stage?

    So… you don’t hear “And then the naked dinosaur…” when they sing “And in the naked light I saw…”? How can you NOT? :)

    Oh… and that is a dude. They are all dudes, or reasonable facsimiles.

    Oh… forgot to say… nice car. 67 Camaro?

    Good cover, lousy video. And screw you, dude. Frickin’ naked dinosaur, indeed. Now that’s caught in *my*haid, too…

    The chick is hot, but some shit should just be left alone.

    I agree with Spockgirl, it’s all about interpretation. Notice in the video, the girl has her wrists bandaged up. FHB…. Nothing is off limits really…it’s was already on the net…the video was great. It makes people think…like…maybe they should call a friend if the friend is depressed.
