Highland: O fortuna

Now is the time at the Flea when we dance.

What is it with directors, they always want to give it the heavy-handed gothic treatment when it's really about horny medieval monks.

I admire the visuals while deploring the contextual tone-deafness.

My first impulse was to go with the Therion cover; it is objectively better but I confess I was swayed by the Highland sets and torches.

Wow. Therion is the shizznit. Kept the pacing and spirit of the original, no question. Much, much better.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

I am a man of simple tastes. I like my music videos to make sense in the context of the music. Failing that, they should have wailing guitars and a hot woman with gigantic 80s hair rolling around on the hood of a car.

Speaking of which, I was recently introduced to the Great Kat oeuvre; how I missed her before is beyond me.
