Music Video: Andrew Bird, "Fitz and Dizzyspells"

Music Video: Andrew Bird, "Fitz and Dizzyspells"

Of all the songs on Andrew Bird's latest album, Noble Beast, "Fitz and Dizzyspells" was the one I most wanted to see get the music video treatment. The song's upbeat and undeniably catchy, and I envisioned something with a lot of marching to mirror the refrain to "soldier on."

But I couldn't have expected the sweet little video Bird's released for the song, which is filmed at several locations in Chicago (including live music venue The Hideout) and includes the visual and musical stylings of Mucca Pazza, a quirky local marching band. In addition, there's a man in a banana costume, another man in flippers, a flaming arrow, and plenty of shots of Bird's feet clad in argyle socks. The video uses a live version of the song, and while it's a little less glossy and produced than the album version, it also apparently inspires a parade, and it's hard to argue with that.

Nice find! I can't see the banana costume without thinking about G.O.B.. And man, I miss the Hideout. One of those great places that makes a city feel special. Watching this video makes me reallllly miss the Saturday night dance parties there. I can't figure out where the pool is, though.
