from happiness

"Weeping Willow"
Did you hear them call you . Did you hear the wind of dream just passing by . There is another whole world hanging there... upside down. Did you see them dress you . Did you feel your elbows tied up side by side . Someone has brought me a new straight costume... in an asylum. In the mildness of the spring . You feel creepy like a worm . In your lost enchanted brain . You're proud to go. With the fairness of your skin . You feel funny in this world . In your lost enchanted brain . Weeping willow. Did you hear them squeaking . Did you see your broken wings just flying by . They drop me in this fairground... abnormal. Could you hear them howling . Could you breathe inside your well-known plastic bag . It was a mean to get away from this... accident. In the mildness of the spring . You feel creepy like a worm . In your lost enchanted brain . Weeping willow. With the fairness of your skin . You feel funny in this world . In your lost enchanted dreams . You're proud to go... You're proud to go.
Happiness (2005)

This is a unique song, at first I couln't tell if it was a man or a woman singing. the crying paper faces are touching and the video is actually very beautifully shot!

And this IS a song to KoM spirit.

After the previous post something changed my mood radically.

This very sad and beautiful song I love very very much was in a kind of waiting list...

It is beautiful after all

enjoy it.

This song has a slightly haunted quality to it. I had to turn it off the first time i saw the swings and the sound it was kind of chilling. Today I listened with fresh ears and eyes and it is sad and haunting and beautiful. I watched it about 5 times :D

The simplicity is deceptive. It's really a very layered sort of song, isn't it?

Yes it is layered, Andrea.

This song as others from Schuller reminds me Moby in many things. The voice transformed and the dubbing and other electronics are quite similar.
I think he was very influenced by him.
I put some more labels in older posts. Moby can be found now.
