This song, “All I Want” by Kodaline, was made as a two-part video. Part 1 was released on YouTube on September 9th, 2012, but fans would have to wait more than a year until Part 2 was released on October 3rd, 2013.
The videos tell the story of Oliver, a lonely young man who is shunned and mocked by his co-workers because of his unfortunate resemblance to a gargoyle, although at least his dog gives him unconditional love. One young woman in the office treats him kindly, however, and when he saves her from being harassed after work by some of their co-workers, she rewards him with a kiss after he escorts her home, obviously making his day. Part 2 continues the story, this time showing the young woman helping Oliver look for his dog (who got accidentally locked out when Oliver was rushing to get to work.)
Kodaline is another group that I have started watching a lot on YouTube lately. These guys come from Swords, in Dublin, Ireland, and, once again, I’ve liked all of their videos that I’ve seen, but this one is my favorite. I just like the whole Maharishi Mahesh Yogi / transcendental mediation thing going on here, even though I’ve never been into TM at all. lol
This video appeared in the “Recommended” section on my YouTube page one day, and I gave it a try just because of the song title. I didn’t expect much, as I don’t usually care for country/bluegrass/hillbilly style of music, but I was pleasantly surprised by this song. It’s a fun, catchy tune, and I love the editing of the video. I’m impressed at how well they matched up the shots.
