“There’s a bunch of videos out there. Some of them are good. Some of them are a cut above. I like to think my picks for Video of The Day are a cut (or two) above.
The last day of the year is a heavy kind of day. It’s a time when many folks think of the entirety of the year, and think about regrets of both the last year and in general. It’s not all gloom, though, as December 31 also represents the start of the beginning. Disappointment mingles with expectation on the day the curtain falls on the year, and I think this Kramies song captures that unique interplay of live wire emotions to perfection. “Of All The Places Been” is a haunted, haunting crawl through memories and into the great unknown of things to come.
The song’s video is sheer perfection, peppered with ghosts and representing the weighted memories of the song beautifully. Listening to this makes for a heck of a way to wrap up the year, not to mention kicking off the new year.”
