Since Sony’s not likely to release it anytime soon, here’s the (Google) video for Real Life, a track from Nellie McKay’s shelved Pretty Little Head album.
I’ve listened to the whole thing and I don’t see why it shouldn’t be released. Get Away From Me may be slightly better, but I like this one just as much. And if the hang-up really is that Sony wants to reduce the number of tracks, I think that’s stupid. Even if no one likes a certain track on an album, they can skip it or rate it poorly in their media player. Sony shouldn’t make that decision for everyone.
Releasing her album might also absolve our nation for the crime of raping the world’s eardrums with the Black Eyed Peas’ Lady Lumps (Improved version of the video).
Every music video I’ve seen since MTV stopped showing them has been found on videos.antville.org.
