Video Saturday – Extreme

So its not about “the performance”, they don’t “perform” this song, there is no backing track, no lip-synching, no dead microphones, they don’t need special effects to disguise the inadequacies of their talent, there are no trapeze artists required in distraction techniques, no strobe effects, no fire bursts, no fire eaters, no-one dances in the background, there is no twenty voice choir singing soaring refrains, no Equity-enforced orchestra presence pretending to play violins because there are violins on the backing track, there are no drunken middle-aged mothers in the audience who really should get a grip on themselves and admit that they are just drunken middle aged mothers and not objects of desire any more, certainly not to middle aged former boy band members who have enough money to pull every single one of their daughters if they so desired.

Its just about two musicians who have mastered their instruments, a stool and two microphones.

And its perfect.
