So I don’t listen to a lot of Sting; never have, never will. Now I have a reason not to even more! The song, “I’m So Happy I Can’t Stop Crying” is not an awful song. As a matter of fact, I have the song stuck in my head. It’s got a country vibe to a pop song and I don’t mind that. The song has some meaning about divorce, dealing with your problems, and getting through life and at times it is very moving. But then the music video is totally wack.
You can watch the video here.
The video consists of Sting coming out of a barn while riding a chrome horse, flying trucks, alien cowboys, the universe, and Sting’s god awful haircut.
This video is absolute garbage. I’m sorry, but when one of the lyrics include getting legal documents to confirm the divorce and the scene in the video is Sting riding through a forest on a chrome horse, while it switches to cowboy aliens serving iced tea, you know it’s not a quality video.
The sheer fact that a song about divorce and moving on with your life does not bring up images of UFOs proves my point perfectly.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice song, but if I were to watch the video without sound, I would have no idea the topic of the song.
Also, Sting’s haircut adds to what’s wrong with this video connection.
