Steve Martin and Banjo

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.

Inspiration Takeaways:

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?
