When we premiered Sally Shapiro’s “Miracle,” she gave us a bit of background on My Guilty Pleasure’s first single that understandably ties into its accompanying video. As far as the talking that unleashes the thunder storm:
It’s the start of a letter to the lost partner, who is from France. One of those letters where you write “It’s not that I want to bring us back together” even though that’s what you want.
The stormy backdrop?
It’s a dramatic song and it sort of strengthened the drama … We love musicals where the feeling of the songs are amplified by the weather or other things happening around. It’s cheesy but good. Maybe it would be nice to do a whole musical some time.
The beautifully shot Will Joines-directed clip isn’t exactly a musical, but the relationship drama’s captured believably via headphones, distance, and the moments of proximity essential to this sort of thing.
