Last week was the final for the Eurovision Song Contest. As I've mentioned in past posts, I'm addicted to the wonderful yearly cheesiness that is the ESC. (Seriously-- Russia came in second this year with seven grandmothers singing "Party for Everybody." You can't say no to babushki!) But for every uber-cheesy song, you'll have some great club/dance music (Greece! Ahhh! That was AWESOME), some radio-ready songs (like Germany's), or some very pretty ballads.
The one song that really stood out for me this year was Mundu Eftir Mér (Never Forget) by Greta and Jonsi from Iceland. It's pretty, ballad-y, epic, and I just fell in love with the song.
Then... I saw their English music video:
and the writer in me screamed "Writing Prompt!" "Writing Prompt!!!!" because the imagery and story were just SO perfect. In this one video, I can see:
1. A contemporary
2. A fairy-tale-like contemporary fantasy
3. A fantasy
4. A sci-fi
5. A dystopian
6. A paranormal romance
7. An excuse to stare at pretty Icelandic scenery and oooh and ahhhh over the Aurora Borealis in the background
Do you see something worth writing about in this video? (or do you REALLY, REALLY hate this song and now hate me?)
