"I Woke Up Today" - Port O'Brien
This is a fantastic, slightly disturbing, video. I love the color, I love the noise, I love the dance moves, I love the little girl, I love the shark (I love the fact that they tag every band member at the beginning of the video, like the video is some radical/sick children's television show). I love the fact that the song celebrates the small and remarkably huge victories of life.
Waking up is the first step to living.
Side note: Port O'Brien does a heart-rending cover of "Something In The Way." There is a place deep in my heart where Nirvana resides, and Port O'Brien wins bonus points for covering (with the perfect level of respect and ingenuity) an often overlooked song in their catalog.
