Video Review: George Lamond “Bad Of the Heart”

In black-and-white, a twentysomething woman dances in silhouette. The twentysomething woman tilts her head back as George Lamond touches her waist as they stand on the porch. Wearing a strapless dress, she walks across the street. She bends down and touches her neck.

Lamond and his friends dance on the sidewalk in color. The twentysomething woman lies on the ground and runs her hand through her hair. In black-and-white, a Doberman barks at people as they pass. Back in color, Lamond sings into a microphone while on the sidewalk.

In black-and-white, he sits on a bench. She runs her hands along on his chest as she stands behind him. Crossing her legs, she sits next to him and gets up to dance. She twirls in front of him. He smiles as she takes her hand. A second twentysomething woman, wearing a pink dress, sits on the steps of the fire escape.

Back in black-and-white, he dances on the sidewalk and sits on the steps. A twentysomething man piles bricks on top of one another. A third twentysomething woman dances in the junkyard. The twentysomething woman puts on her watch and ring. The third twentysomething woman grips the fence. Two trains pass one another. He kisses her as she lies on the ground. They walk together across the street. He and his friends continue to dance on the sidewalk.

Rating: 3/5

George Lamond takes off his jacket and puts it on the coat rack. He glances around the family room for the twentysomething woman. Walking up the stairs, he hears the shower running. As he turns, he steps on a tie, which wasn’t one of his own. He puts it on the sink.

The twentysomething woman lets out a sheepish “surprise” as he talks about the tie. She says it was a gift and she forgot to wrap it. He says there was a wine stain on it. She tells him nothing happened with the other man. The other man came over during his lunch break. He rubs his eyes and says he needs some time to process it.

The twentysomething woman covers her face with her hand as Lamond stumbles on the street. She whispers to him that he looks drunk and get himself together. He glares at her and say it was an accident. She says people are going to talk and laugh. He tells her he’s done and that he’ll send for her things. She says he’s just being dramatic. He turns in the other direction and says he expects her half of the bills due by the end of the week.
