Yesterday, Mystery Jets unveiled their new nostalgia-drenched video for their single ‘Greatest Hits’.
Directed by Jem Goulding, the video sees the band experiencing all the thrills of the funfair…in the end though, Blaine falls asleep on a carousel, and the ex-girlfriend in question does a runner, literally riding off with all of his records.
Listening to the lyrics, it sounds like she managed to make off with at least these LPs:
The Lexicon of Love by ABC, Remain in Light by Talking Heads, It’s A Shame About Ray by The Lemonheads, Country Life by Roxy Music, No Need To Argue by The Cranberries, In The Aeroplane Over The Sea by Neutral Milk Hotel, The Boy With The Arab Strap by Belle & Sebastian, The Village Green Preservation Society by The Kinks, Double Nickels on the Dime by Minutemen, Band on the Run by Paul McCartney & Wings, McCartney by Paul McCartney and This Nation’s Saving Grace by The Fall…
Ouch. Definitely not fun, or fair.
