Songs aren’t experienced uniformly. Depending on the mood or the day one catches you on, you might either consider a particular song sentimental and maudlin, or, as was the case when I heard this track “Oceans” from Mighty Fox, it could crawl right up inside where you’re living at that point in time and make itself at home. “We’re all afraid of failing, we are in the same boat. As the waves are growing stronger we are only going further down the coast,” Mike Jansen, of the Chicago band sings here.
The group married the strident earnestness of the song with images of the ocean to really force the point home here in the video.
“We wanted to create an image of being tossed around at sea,” bass player Johnny Walker said. “We feel Rick Wayne’s vision was perfect for the visual representation of the song.”
