Vidiot: Metallica “One” [VIDEO]
It is time for the second of many post where I feature a music video each day. These are videos that I feel you must see. Granted you may or may not have seen them before. I urge you to take a time out and enjoy each days pick. Even if you have seen them before.
For today’s video I present to you one the the deepest music videos EVER MADE! The song’s theme and lyrics are based on Dalton Trumbo’s 1939 novel Johnny Got His Gun, telling the tale of a soldier whose body is severely damaged by a mortar shell. His arms, legs, eyes, mouth, nose and ears are gone and he is unable to see, speak, smell, or hear. His mind functions perfectly, however, leaving him trapped inside his own body. Trumbo directed the movie adaptation in 1971, from which the footage for the “One” music video is taken.
My favorite part is during the “breakdown” when the entire band does a synchronized head bang. CLASSIC!
