Video: "Lullaby" - Chris Blake

I got an e-mail from Chris Blake, an LA musician whose latest album Wave features a gentle song called "Lullaby," sung from the perspective of a parent to a soon-to-be-slumbering child. If you had told me that a sweet lullaby song could feature the word "TV" as the last word, I'd probably have laughed -- hey, I was wrong.

The video features home movies from a half-century ago or more, and, yeah, it's manipulative, but it works. Makes you wonder if the digital video/YouTube explosion will make these kinds of things more common or less wistful in the future.

Anyway, a peaceful 3 minutes or so.
