Don't Pay the Ferryman. It's a music video by Chris De Burgh and I can't find a decent quality video of the original online. That's all I know.
I understand. This is the best quality I could find. But I'll keep this page here because both the song and the video are that good. As I learn more, I'll post it here. Hopefully, this video may have some cool history!
What'd I'd love to see is Chris release an album that has a DVD of his original videos as well as a CD.
While We're On The Subject Of Paying Someone And When -
I'm all about CDs. This isn't out of a luddite sense of wanting my shiny silver platter, I'm all for MP3s in concept, but I have a pretty decent sense of hearing. So until someone figures out a compression codec that at least matches CD SAC quality (ogg comes closest so far), I'm not about to go back to miserable cassette tape and LP quality.
I'm an audiophile and I make no apology for it. I'm sorry, but that's just how I am.
Yes, as of 2012 Long Play analog records are making their miniscule Dead Cat Bounce, but I'm thinking that's only because the sound quality is no worse than the sub-standard quality I get from music downloads.
So yeah, I'm one of those people still keeping CDs around on the shelves.
And while I'm on my soapbox, I'm also glad that downloading music brought the price of CDs to a realistic rate. The 2000 model of paying $15.99 for a music CD that cost $50,000 to make and market, while paying the same price for a movie DVD that cost $100,000,000 to make and market, was such an obviously blatant rip-off from the music industry. The fact that every single one of them did it together is an example of anti-capitalist collusion. Worse, when we discovered that musicians selling well into Platinum record category weren't making a dime off of album sales? That's when we fans - who are fans of the artist and not the factory - were delighted to see the music industry cave in on itself, burying the corrupt, monopolistic bastards alive!
Which is why I love Capitalism! The recording studios priced themselves right out of the market and there was nothing and no one who would rush to their aid (too big to fail, like hell!). Most CDs these days cost a more respectable $5.00 to $10.00.
Okay, I'm off my soapboax and that had nothing to do with Chris de Burgh.
Sorry Chris! I love your music and I've paid the price for it - many times over the years (tape, album, and $15.99 cd!). If you put out an album with your original songs, plus a DVD of the original videos (hey! Have extras like a Pop-Up video option or commentary), I'd happily shell out another $10.00 for that!
Anyway, there are more movies at the Feo Amante Theater. Go to NOW SHOWING!
