Van Halen – She’s The Woman
Van Halen releases She’s The Woman, the second single from their comeback album A Different Kind of Truth.
Unlike the first single Tattoo [MV], She’s The Woman is more accurate in terms of the direction that Van Halen’s latest album took and could have been used to promote the album before it was released as well as make the fans feel less skeptical about the band’s return.
The video for She’s The Woman is full of compiled footage of Van Halen performing at a variety of live shows on their current world tour and from their intimate gig at Cafe Wha in New York City this past January.
While Van Halen isn’t aiming for a creative music video like most artists would [check them here] and prefers promoting themselves through their sound, I actually don’t think that the MV captures the excitement of seeing the band live that well. Van Halen’s video looks weak when you compare it to something like AC/DC’s Shoot To Thrill (Iron Man 2 version) [MV], which was a great music video in terms of promoting how exciting it is to attend a concert.
I’d still see Van Halen live if I could. And if they’re going to make a third video that repeats the same structure, then they can have a great MV in Buenos Aires (a city that boasts amazing concert crowds) while still holding a concert in Peru, I hope.
