An ode to a Princess

The clip and song “Princess” by Phil Nakayama is a sweet kind of “puppy-love” song to a love interest he seems head over heals for though unfortunately you never actually get the honor of seeing her on the clip. Overall the song is very sweet and well written with a catchy melody that despite sounding rather melancholy and repetitive at times leaves you with hope and anticipation that good things will come of it. I’m not sure where it was originally downloaded from but if anyone knows you can send me an email and I’ll post the link for all. One thing for sure is this kid has talent and could really write some good songs as this one shows despite it’s simple message but that’s what personal love songs tend to be and he did this one great.
Film direction was by Aaron Cross. I’ve seen some of his other ones like “Double Speak” and I like the way he tells them, kind of live and handheld feel and free movement and panning with the camera. I thought his use of Black and White really added a great feel to it, kind of like a dream. The grooming and things were a bit bland but I guess it was hard to fill up those 4+ minutes and overall was a solid effort.

    Can’t say I liked it…was very blah without much to it, just a lovesick kid…so what? I mean, no offence, but I’d rather have a song with meaning, something that speaks to me, like Doublespeak or even the Elaina song remake. My thoughts…

    I agree with sylverwaters. It was very bland. But the remake on the first STEM album was much better.
