Holy shit, that video was great. Hearing this song for the first time kind of brings back feelings of when I heard The 59 Sound (song, not album) for the first time. I did have a chuckle seeing them playing guitars that weren't plugged in though.

Edit: Also, the director/crew/band/whoever deserves some recognition for how well they accurately set that video in the 60s (probably?) The cars, clothing, house decor, everything.

Edit 2: Well, I wrote this before I saw the end. That got dark pretty fast. Edit 3: Nevermind, I enjoyed the outcome.

If I'm understanding, every main character is all the same guy at different points in his life? Or does it follow the life of a record through different owners?
Album as it passes through time.

Follows the life of the record. Girlfriend gives it to boyfriend. Boyfriend goes off (to the military?) and father gives it to neighborhood kid who grows up and sells it to the record store. The singer of the band from way back when then finds the record of his old band.

Perfect! I hoped this would get the single/video treatment and it certainly did not disappoint.

Fantastic stuff. All I know is that, upon first listen of the album, this was my favorite...it now appears to change with every passing hour...this album is Sink or Swim, Senor & the Queen, '59 Sound and American Slang, all rolled into one perfect album. So happy with every listen of this gem.

Wow, that's a fucking awesome plot. A bit depressing when the kid grows up and sells it but it's heartwarming to see the old man find his record. Kind of makes you think about what will happen with Gaslight in time.

I think a nice little subplot is how the album means something different to each person.

This song and video are done so well. Ive had it on repeat since the first listen.

I don't think that's the kid from beginnings father or else the singer wouldn't be that old at the end. I think that's the kid from the beginning who has grown up and is much older that gives the record to the neighborhood kid.
