New Nightwatchman Video – “Alone Without You”

Definitely (definitely) appreciate the sentiments Tom Morello’s gettin’ baritone ‘n’ Crash Test Dummies about in “Alone Without You,” but the song itself leaves something to be desired: Like, seriously, we weren’t surprised to learn he returned to his hotel after an early screening of SiCKO and wrote the thing in one obviously mellow night. Is it only us or does that intro remind you a bit of “Wanted Dead Or Alive”? Subtle Bon Jovi punning, perhaps…

Morello first posted the video on Michael Moore’s website, and the song itself plays during SiCKO‘s closing credits. The relationship with the scruffy documentary maker’s not new — Moore directed Rage’s “Sleep Now In The Fire” and “Testify” videos way back in the day. Now that was agitation!

Okay, gotta get something for this cough…
