my friend turned me onto 'justified and ancient' by KLF and man did it brighten up my day. or maybe not brighten, exactly, but it definitely brought my mind into a new dimension. i don't know if i have ever seen a video at quite this level of bizarre. first it starts with a kind of ethnic vibe and then some little lady in a crown starts singing country! blowing my mind! then all these words start flying across the screen like the stock market. then around 2:20 a rap jam interlude begins. just let yourself go and enjoy the genius of this masterpiece.
In regards to the video (Justified & Ancient) The old lady in the crown is legendary country singer Tammy Wynette. The words that are flying around are stating all the honors and awards that Tammy accumulated throughout her LONG career. This was her swan song before Tammy died. KLF wanted this to be an homage to her.
oh that makes sense! i really don't know that much about country music. i hope i get a vid this awesome as my swan song!
