Peoples! I have music to recommend! Since I am headed to the Middle East, you might be expecting something atmospheric and haunting–but no! It’s Japanese pop music by a band called Scandal. Seriously, look at this video. I think it is part of a TV show, so you can skip past the first 30 seconds as filler.
What makes it special? The video is fun—you can’t go wrong with a band playing in the rain—but the looks on the girls’ faces for the four seconds between 1:18 to 1:22 are priceless. At the same time, it’s impossible to imagine any western director “wasting” those four seconds.
So, what do you think?
