“Wait For Me” – Allison Weiss

by Cherie

Good music is all about telling a story for the listener. Whether its a literal story or just painting a picture for the listener, music is, at heart, an interactive experice. Allison Weiss’s new video for “Wait For Me” takes that idea to a new level. The concept for the video is simple, the song plays in the background while a woman, Josee, listens to it for the first time on headphones. As the song plays we get to watch the Josee’s reaction, but we also learn something about her life story as well, thanks to subtitles on the screen. The combined experience is touching and beautiful, and for three and a half minutes you can immerse yourself in someone elses life story. It’s almost as if the song were written for Josee.

Honestly, this might be my favorite video of 2013. Its a great song by itself by the genuine nature of the video make it that much better.
