Black Out Days | A Streetcar Named Desire [Festivids '15]  


Song: Black Out Days
Artist: Phantogram
Source: A Streetcar Named Desire (Young Vic/National Theatre Live)

Summary: “We've had this date with each other from the beginning.”



Notes: Original Festivids post: LJ | DW

Notes: The concept of using the audience as a framing device is partially inspired by Lars Von Trier's film Dogville. We're all watching, but we do nothing to help.





BLACK OUT DAYS

Hide the sun
I will leave your face out of my mind
You should save your eyes
A thousand voices howling in my head

Speak in tongues
I don’t even recognize your face
Mirror on the wall
Tell me all the ways to stay away

Ey ey ey ah
Away ey ah
Away ey ah
And stay
Away ey ah
Away ey ah
Away ey ah

Dig a hole
Fireworks exploding in my hands
If I could paint the sky
Would all the stars be shining bloody red?

Stay
Ey ey ey ah
Away ey ah
Away ey ah
And stay
Ey ey ey ah
Away ey ah
Away ey ah

And stay (I'm hearing voices all the time up in my mind)
Away ey ah
Away ey ah
Away ey ah (I'm hearing voices and they're haunting my mind)
And stay (I'm hearing voices all the time up in my mind)
Away ey ah
Away ey ah
Away ey ah (I'm hearing voices and they're haunting my mind)

Black out days
I don’t recognize you anymore

I watched this way back when it came out with festivids and appreciated it for the editing and use of the audience. I hadn't seen the production or even the original movie (ahhh I know I love cinema, but I haven't seen a lot of classics). Now that I saw the production (and freaking loved it and watched the original movie too) I can appreciate this so much more and on a different level. Like, holy shit the "hide the sun" parts are so amazing knowing what I know now about Blanche.

Duuude, loving you for coming back to comment. SO HAPPY you got a chance to watch the play and that your life has been upgraded significantly thanks to Gillian's Blanche. She's amaaaaazin. *praise hands emoji* Super thrilled you have a better understanding of the vid now too and that you got a chance to rewatch it. Wheee!
