My Favorite Video of all Time

What else is there to say besides WOW! I mean, this video is incredible, adorable, heart-breaking, and just flawless. The video is partly animated with stop-motion- in other words, it is sorta like that show "Robot Chicken" where the toys somehow move. Now, this whole stop-motion process is no easy business, for it requires countless pictures of practically the same thing, long hours of set and prop design, and sometimes heated debate over what setting to use on the camera. I wasn't a part of the production of this video, but BELIEVE ME, for I have indured such chaos over this general process. Okay, Motion City Soundtrack's "It Had to Be You" video is pure magic. I say this because you are taken on somewhat of a journey with this charming little burlap-sack-lookin dude who has a wonderful relationship, (much like an amusment park ride) but when it ends, he is faced to cope with the sadness and loss of it all. I applaud Motion City Soundtrack for producing such a wonderful piece of work. Most bands ruin their songs because of their atrocious videos to go with it, but in Motion City Soundtrack's case, they could not have done a better job...

One of their best songs, and I was honestly suprised, because I can't say I was really impressed by what was on Even If It Kills Me..This one was great! And the music video is so adorible! >w<...the cut-outs of the band are kinda scary when they smile, though..

The pair assembled a temporary lineup and issued a self-released 7" that same year. Later,...
