everybody hurts by r.e.m.
tidbit of Texas trivia: this video (directed by jake scott)
was filmed along I-10 in san antonio.
i think one would be hard pressed to find a secular video that is more catholic in nature. not only does it express our universal susceptibility to pain and suffering, it embraces it as a unifying force. interestingly, psalm 61.2 is quoted "from the end of the earth will i call unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than i," as well as psalm 126.5: "they that sow in tears shall reap in joy."



If only Duran Duran's equally secular, yet Catholic-in-nature single Ordinary World had had a video like this!
