For Valentine’s Day and beyond!
This was such a fun video to make. A director friend of mine (same director Gravity Takes the Lead) directed this..all in one day. The concept was a stalker-like twist to the original “Be My Baby,” originally recorded by The Ronettes. I had recorded this version in Nashville for the album, A Witty Girl, the previous year. I’d just moved into a new apartment in Los Angeles and it was completely empty except for the bed and the Victorian chair. I had to buy the table we ate at. While we were shooting the first half, a friend of mine put that table together. That’s why I gave him Production Designer credit. A friend of the director was the actor and he was fantastic. Even I believed the fear in his face. Hah.
