'Brick By Boring Brick' Video

Another offering for the Monday after holiday blues, the new music video of 'Brick by Boring Brick' by Paramore:

I've been saving this one, waiting for the video premiere after reading Paramore Reveal Secrets Of 'Brick By Boring Brick' Video and Paramore Take Us Behind The Scenes Of 'Brick By Boring Brick' Video a while back.

Well, the video premiered a week or so ago and so I'm sharing its fairy tale rich imagery.

Link to the lyrics on the Paramore site. You can read the lyrics and play one of my favorite games, "identify the fairy tale references." There's not a lot but enough to play the game for 60 seconds or so.

It's alternative rock, emo, pop punk and such so not for all tastes. I'm happy to give a plug for some other Nashvillians (or Franklin, TN) which is close enough to be the same thing for most of us.


  1. Not bad. The only thing I really don't like is how so many modern songs etc. use fairy tales a metaphor for extreme escapism. It makes them seem negative.

  2. The visuals were simultaneously pretty and often hard on the eyes. The video had a feel of Secret Garden meets Labyrinth in (Alice in) Wonderland. I liked the song and had fun playing your game of "identify the fairy tale references."
