    What's amazing about the Keep On Loving Me video is that I've yet to show it to someone who doesn't immediately fall in love with it. And if they're from LA, people go especially ape-shit.

    btw, dude on the right in the still shot of the "This Time" video looks like Herbie.

  • such great songs, such great videos.

    I was going to say the same thing. Regardless of your feelings about the song (of which I am quite fond), you're probably going to love the video.

    My indie rocker brother and his friends posted it all over facebook and got geeked over it.

    Does anybody recognize what city this walking to the music takes place in? I want to go there and re-enact it with my wife and kids.

    I'm no expert, but I remember someone saying Century City, LA

    Im guessing Detroit. Google the skyline and see those three shiny buildings.

    100% Los Angeles. They start outside the Pacific Design Center in W Hollywood (or "The Blue Whale", as we call it -- you might recognize it, however, as Sandra Bullock's apartment complex in Demolition Man).



    Then when they're walking, that's Century City, before they remodeled the crap out of it.

    I can't believe I've never seen that video before. I've wasted my life.

    I now want to do a remake of this around Potsdamer Platz.

  • Is Woimsah still around?
    We had a pretty good/stupid argument over the best part of LA to vacation in.

    I have watched this nearly 500 times. Never fails to put me in a good mood. That track kills in the club too.

    I think somebody might have done one of those smack-house/slo-mo-disco re-edits of it as well. I seem to remember hearing one which flipped a Whispers tune a few years ago.

    Marvin has some reverential songs. I think they are the only dudes to give Hathaway that love.

    Cosigned to the max. Amazing repertoire of videos.

    No doubt. On my list of Music Video Moves To Someday Master, the Nicholas Caldwell newspaper-fold-transitioning-into-Mashed-Potato-quickstep maneuver from the "Keep On Lovin' Me" video is definitely close to the top.

    I am, alas, still toiling near the bottom while endlessly fine-tuning my Eddie Money popeyed-fingersnap-white-scarf-dip-spin-transitioning-into-passenger-side-entry from the "Shakin'" video.

    I'll get there, though. Caldwell is the beacon. "If it's worth doing, it's worth over-doing."

    Lyrics Born sampled it for "Callin' Out"

    That location is actually near the Bonaventure building downtown Los Angeles.

    Damn. R.I.P.

    Like I mentioned above. He always put me in a good mood when I saw him in videos. Him struttin' in Keep on Lovin' Me is a pure delight.
