Have you ever liked a song so much that you will play it over and over until it completely exhaust you? I have been now watching this new commercial from the British Airways for about a week about a thousand times a day and I am tired. But I can’t stop. The same thing happened to me, for example, with Sagan’s opening monologue in Cosmos or Glass’s Metamorphosis. And there had been many more.
In the case of the BA commercial yes, I watch the video too. I think the part towards the end where all the different planes are taking off and the face expressions of the pilots are absolutely amazing. I assume Sagan’s Cosmos intro would have the same effect on me without the video, but I have never tried it. Glass’s music is obviously fine without having to see the pianist.
