White Wedding - Literal Video Version

It is fast turning into a music-heavy week this week!

I promise to have some more in-depth technical posts soon.

To round off this Red Nose Day, I thought I would add in another great literal music video. For those that have not seen these before, the idea is to change the lyrics of a song (without changing the tune and trying to match the sound of the artist) to describe what is going on in the video itself.

As The Beatles' "Penny Lane" proved earlier this week, this process works particularly well if the video appears to have no relation to the original lyrics. In this case, Billy Idol's "White Wedding", does in fact feature a wedding. However, the outcome is just as good.
