In the same vein as Idle Thoughts’ recent thread, I thought I would ask for help identifying a song/album that I’ve been looking for for years and has been driving me crazy.
I’m really looking for the album, but I can only remember the music video for one of the songs.
Basic info: I believe this is by a single performer, not a band. The album was released around 1996 or 1998, I can’t remember which. It was probably classified as “alternative,” but it was not very popular. I think I saw the video once, maybe on 120 Minutes.
Here is the video: the singer is painting a room blue and splashing paint everywhere, including all over himself. He may have been painting himself into a corner, literally. By the end of the video, all four walls of the room are completely blue, as is the singer himself, and the video ends with a shot of him curled in a fetal position in the corner while a white cat slowly picks his way across the floor that’s covered in blue paint, leaving behind white paw prints.
If anyone can help me figure out what this video is, I will not give you a million dollars but I will be eternally grateful. I’ve googled various elements of the video for years, and I’ve never come upon anything even remotely close.
Can you help me, Dopers?
