Stand Inside Your Love
In what has to be [in my opinion, at least] one of the most underestimated songs of the millennium, I bring forth – The Smashing Pumpkins – Stand Inside Your Love. Many thanks to Don, cause I sucked this love song from his collection of uber-awesome songs.
The video that you’re about to see is inspired by Aubrey Beardsley’s illustration for Oscar Wilde’s tragedy play, “Salome”.
“Salome” is based on the Biblical story of Salome, stepdaughter of the tetrarch Herod Antipas, who, to her stepfather’s dismay but to the delight of her mother Herodias, requests the head of Jokanaan (John the Baptist) on a silver platter as a reward for dancing the Dance of the Seven Veils.
Dark, haunting and deathly beautifully executed art direction, Stand Inside Your Love is indeed a love song sung by those who are sickeningly in love. *cough.
