Song of the day: Massive Attack – Unfinished Sympathy

The songs I select here are primarily chosen for their merit as a song, not for the video accompanying the music- as you might already have deducted from the fact that for some of them the video shown is not actually a video clip, but rather a few minutes of footage of a picture (I’ve tried to use SoundCloud as an alternative to YouTube, but some of the music clips there tends to disappear after a while and that is not the case with YouTube, at least not that I’ve noticed – but YouTube does bring other difficulties, as I have mentioned before).

For some songs, however, the video is definitely very much worth watching, as with this Unfinished Sympathy by Massive Attack. At first sight it might not look special or spectacular, until you realize that the entire 5 minute clip is just one single shot. Both smooth and compelling.
