Video of the Moment #500: Doves

By on Tuesday, 14th June 2011 at 6:00 pm

Hitting video #500 at TGTF is a pretty big deal. I felt it only appropriate to post a Doves video for the momentous occasion. (You know why, yes?) But the band haven’t put out a new album since ‘Kingdom of Rust’, and I didn’t want to pull out just any video. Handily, the band’s official YouTube channel had a ‘Album Mega Mix’ in their video collection: basically a greatest hits of their videos. And what should be the first video featured? Why, ‘There Goes the Fear’, of course!

It feels a bit surreal writing this, as when I started as USA Editor for TGTF in 2009, I wouldn’t have dreamt that in 2011 I would be running TGTF as Editor. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who’s supported us over the years: the bands, their management, their PR and of course, the fans – you, our readers. We couldn’t have gotten to this place without you. Keep supporting your favourite bands: buy their music, buy their merch, see them gig. We need to keep real music alive.

And as one YouTube commenter posted about this collection, I would like to echo the sentiment…Manchester FTW. How odd that a girl who fell in love with the songs of Morrissey and the faraway city of Manchester nearly a decade ago would come round full circle with her heart firmly in the same place. It’s funny how fate works some times. To those who are meant to receive this message: to me you are a work of art. And you are loved.
