Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant has a voice like no other–as evidenced by the new song, “Angel Dance.” He also has an inimitable vision. Just watch the slice-of-live video for the song, a cover originally by Los Lobos. ARTISTdirect is proud to feature the video right here.
The video for “Angel Dance” is like a mini-movie, rife with vignettes about people who could veritably live next door to you. It opens with a bit of a futuristic bend, and then features Plant in the back seat of an old school ride; a mohawked tyke with boxing gloves; a bride in her wedding gown; and children swimming the pool created by an opened fire plug. Plant takes in life as he drives by people, places and pockets of culture.
As for the song, it has a mellow tempo, but it is also in possession of an earthy, real-life grit, and I love the Middle Eastern flavoring that is sprinkled throughout the song. ARTISTdirect invites you to take a few moments out of your day and indulge in this video. It’ll transport you to another place and allow you to step outside of yourself and your life for a moment. After all, isn’t that the best thing about art? When it takes you somewhere else, if even for a fleeting moment.
Did you enjoy the video? What did you think? Who was your favorite “character?”
