A Moby song I have played to death. It never made the pop chart in his native US, but in Britain it went to #5 in 2000, his biggest British hit. He thinks the song is average:
“I thought it sounded mushy, I thought my vocals sounded really weak. I couldn’t imagine anyone else wanting to listen to it.”
But then it appeared in a Leonardo DiCaprio film, “The Beach” (2000), where it was used to effect.
The video above is not from “The Beach”, which takes place on a tropical island. Instead it shows a fast-motion video of Times Square in June 2008, on the decidedly temperate island of Manhattan. It already looks dated to me, back in time.
- songs, the 2000s
- Videos shot in Times Square:
- Times Square through time
- The Ford – of which there are many in the video
In my dreams I’m dying all the time,
Then I wake it’s kaleidoscopic mind
I never meant to hurt you,
I never meant to lie
So this is goodbye,
This is goodbye
Tell the truth, You’ve never wanted me
In my dreams I’m jealous all the time,
When I wake I’m going out of my mind
Going out of my mind
