Happy Birthday Steve Martin! Even though it was yesterday, I just heard about it today. In celebration, his latest song/video
A bit of banjo, a sense of fun, some animation and lots of saturated colour.
And what about that name, “Caroline”? It’s got a perfect rhythm to be in a lyric – and this song doesn’t waste a syllable of its charm.
Film tie-in: in one of his films, Steve Martin is the one doing the wooing under the balcony (in hiding) pretending to be the voice of a shy wooer in the film “Roxanne”. A fun comedy. If you haven’t already seen it, look it out. But not before you’ve looked out “All of Me” – an inspired physical comedy movie in which half of his body is possessed by a woman.
Listening to the words/music of this video – does it spark a small project idea to make? Perhaps a collage? Or imagining it with a different ending?
