Viva Voce - From the Devil Himself

Viva Voce – From the Devil Himself

Via Voce – From the Devil Himself

  • Title: From The Devil Himself

  • Artist: http://therobinsonsmusic.com/”>Viva Voce
  • Director: Moh Azima
  • Location Scout: U/K
  • Location Scout (me) Comment(s): kewl hippy / ’60’s retro look, playing off Lennon / Ono Bed-In
  • I hit pay dirt when Jo Van Hove sent me a heads-up that a there was a really kewl vid that had used a Locamundo location on Videology-TV!

    In any case, I started surfing around Videology-tv and found From The Devil Himself by Viva Voce, directed by Moh Azima which is what this post is all about, so I guess if you read my website at all you might say I am “into” music videos lately!

    I do realize I am risking diluting the “focus” of my website reviewing all these films lately, but it does, in fact, all have to do with location scouting and film production. If you work in the creative end of film production like I do I think you would know what I meant if I said, “I don’t watch films like ‘normal’ people do”, in fact, its a bus man’s holiday of sorts- I am always looking closely at the locations, lighting, camera angles used, lensing, directorial and actor’s techniques so-on and so forth, so, after I get finished being entertained picking something apart technically if I can still say I was entertained for the sake of being entertained, it was a good day! πŸ˜‰

    Ok. so here you have it, retro done right πŸ˜‰ From The Devil Himself by Viva Voce:

    About Viva Voce | THE (EXHAUSTIVE AND UNABRIDGED) LONG & WINDING STORY THUSFAR:

    Kevin & Anita Robinson make the sounds.

    The sounds (Vee-vah-VOH-chay) are Italian for “word of mouth” and prophetically prove many would neither be able to spell or prounounce the name.

    Viva Voce indeed.

    LYRICS:

    I eat for dinner golden bullions
    Diamond dessert and oil cream
    My name of Beelzebub
    The master of the stratosphere
    Im so gratefully cool my respects without measure

    refrain:
    In my left hand Snickers in my right hand Mars
    My PR manager is Karl Marx
    Capital! Capital! Capital! Capital!

    I eat your cities and drink your oceans
    My beard is obscuring the sky
    Thunders and lightnings, fogs and rains
    My shoes are licked by ministers and chiefs

    refrain:
    In my left hand Snickers in my right hand Mars
    My PR manager is Karl Marx
    Capital! Capital! Capital! Capital!

    My face Madonna, in a rotten pear
    Everyone on your knees!
    The orchestra, flourish!
    Capital! Capital! Capital! Capital!
