Musical interlude: the White Stripes

“The hardest button to button” is not just a great song that reminds me of university and the friends I made there, it’s also a great video by one of the masters of music-video directing: Michel Gondry. I’m really pleased he’s come back to music videos this year (for Metronomy’s “Love letters”) after a few years’ hiatus. His creative genius works so well in this format.

But it’s also a really good song.

    I didn’t know Michel Gondry directed this video, or music videos at all. How cool! Definitely a great song.

    Katherine I forget how I first heard his name, but I know his music videos were the reason I was so excited to see Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind when it came out. Typically, because his latest film is in French, almost nowhere is showing it near me.

    Susan I suspect not, or not any time soon. Sadly.
