Ghost!

Posted on Monday, January 16th, 2012

Dave!I started today the same way I start every Martin Luther King Jr. Day... by listening to his brilliant and beautiful "I have a Dream" speech in its entirety. In my humble opinion, it's probably one of the best-known speeches that most people never bother to listen to. That's a real shame, because it's famous for a very good reason.

Anyway...

I spent the entirety of my day at work, so I don't have anything to blog about.

What I do have is this awesome video for one of my favorite songs from my second-favorite album of 2011... it's Wait & See by Holy Ghost!

What's so awesome about it is that band members Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel only make cameo appearances... they let their fathers be the stars of the video! That's right, they got their dads to stand in for them as aging pop stars who still act like they're in their twenties. Freakin' hilarious...

Always nice to see a music video that can surprise me.

    I have never listened to the speech. Selfish probably but as someone from Ireland, living in the UK its just never been that big a part of our pop culture.

    That could be an excuse, I am really not sure.

    Great video and super pop tune!

    Love the video! And now I have a new band to check out. Thanks for the tip :)

    In January 2006, we moved for 6mos to Washington, DC on MLK Day weekend, and there was a little boy reciting the speech from memory on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial with zero fanfare whatsoever–just a bunch of family, friends, and tourists there. It was great.

    I’ve probably left this comment before on a previous year’s MLK post.
