- Title: Subaru - I'll Take The Rain - Long Version
- Premiered: 2005-01-13
- R.E.M. I'll Take The Rain
This is my second version of this video. It's almost 6 minutes long, while my first version was 4.40. The main difference, anyway, is that I had just re-read volumes 6 and 7 of Tokyo Babylon, and I felt the urge of changing this video, focusing more on Subaru's past. As the song is so metaphorical, I decided that "summer" is Hokuto, and the "rain" is "death", and so "Seishirou" (remember that in X Seishirou is Death Tarot...). This time I didn't cut the song, and I put Subaru's memories during the instrumental parts. So, hope you'll like it, because I do! ^_^ Who knows, maybe I'll do another version sometime in the future... And remember, in order to understand why I chose some clips, you must have read Tokyo Babylon. Otherwise, it won't make any sense. Sorry!
Just a funny note: I was talking about the memaning of this song with a friend of mine, and we arrived at the lines "open up inside of me". We both agreed that it was a very poetical and romantic way to say "we were making love". Of course, I didn't know how to put it in the video, and then... I hope you'll like the clip I chose, because I like the bittersweet irony I put in that scene!
For my first version, see here:
