THAT (that) wrote,

The Real Deal

This is one of my all-time favorite music videos. First off, it's a great song. What I love about Cake, aside from the great songwriting, is the organic feel of the music. They're an old-fashioned rock group. You can really feel them playing together in real time. Their grooves are always happening. They're all great players, but that guitarist is the shit. His lines are melodic and yet driving, snaking and pulsing like a trained eel.

And what a novel idea, to have ordinary people on the street listen to the music and respond in the moment, just grooving in their workaday clothes. These people express themselves so beautifully it makes me love humanity.
