Mid Day Music Blast: B*Boss “If You Leave Me”

Originally when we received this song, there was no video with it. I am so glad we waited to post until the video was released, because it pulls everything together. When asked what the track was about, B*Boss answers quickly, knowing exactly what their message is, “This is a story about life, as seen from a place where we spend up to 1/3 of our lives, our beds. Our bed bares witness to some of the most private and intimate moments of our lives. Our secrets, our desires, our dreams and our fears. In bed, we laugh, we cry, we ponder, we obsess, we explore, we discover, we love, and we even die. For many of us, our bed is the most familiar place we know. It is the one place where we feel safe.”

As you watch the video, you see a life unfold before you, from beginning to end, and the short film takes place in the different beds the character has throughout their life. It goes from beautiful triumphs, like the first person they ever had sleep in the bed with them, all the way to terrible defeats, like the upheaval of a marriage. The story is tangible, and the characters are real. This is what a music video is supposed to be. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like looking at the artist lip sync the song for 3 min…no… I really don’t. I like stories and I like storytellers.

If you leave me
make sure you leave me lying in my bed

Is someone cutting onions? Damn.
