Richmond Fontaine

Making it Black

Y'all know how much I admire Willy Vlautin. Found another clip at Youtube by the Richmond Fontaine written by Willy while the camera seems to be an impression of an ordinary day. Only with the unmistaken romantic normalcy as dictated by Vlautins vision of the small people's live.

There is nothing staged about this clip, nothing artificial about Vlautin's lyrics that reflect on seemingly simple but truly deep felt emotions expressed through a smooth collage of pictures on a tired morning.

Coming home 3am in the morning, nursing the last beer from the fridge before hitting the sack after a busy night, meeting your lover or spouse in the kitchen to reflect on the most basic of all feelings in a relationship: "God I'm glad you're here - right now - like that"...

Doesn't get any simpler than that, or deeper and honest... Gotta love Vlautin for that!
