The Streets - Blinded by the Light

Recommended Posts

It has been a long while since I have heard such a fuss about a music video. The track is also getting a lot of airtime on radio.

Blinded by the Light continues to follow the story of Mike, whos pain and suffering we all had to put up with The Streets previously release "Dry Your Eyes". Click here to see that video.

Now Mike and his mates are in a club. The song and video are controversial for the depiction of drug usage.

When asked about the use of ecstasy in an interview, Mike Skinner, the lead singer, replies,

"Not really criticizing it or supporting it. You know, we do a lot of it in England. It’s just an average night out, really. It’s quite average."

If that sounds pro-E, then wait until the end of the video.

The continuation of a story is relatively unimportant, especially in comparision to the continuation of the Streets unique style of music. Don't expect anything like Fit But You Know It, which was the Streets first release from the album A Grand Dont Come For Free.

Check out the video of Blinded by the Light here.

The quality is poor. Different qualities and different formats of the video at www.the-streets.co.uk. Also go there for lots more information.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
