For Valentine’s Day and beyond!

Making of:

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.
