the scientist ///

A few months ago, I wrote about my all-time favourite music video, Radiohead’s Just, and found out that its director, Jamie Thraves, was also responsible for Coldplay‘s video for The Scientist. And so, I am now officially a big fan of Mr. Thraves’ unique gift to tell a brilliant, heartbreaking story that ties into the song’s lyrics, without being too literal or heavy-handed. And, thanks to Wikipedia, I’ll be writing shortly about a third video from Jamie’s portfolio, for one of the loveliest, most heartfelt songs I’ve ever heard.
