Mike Green - Honey

Over forty seconds in and you'll be feeling a funky adult contemporary vibe from Mike Green's latest music video "Honey." The song is catchy with a simple chorus, "If only I could be your honey, honey." Lyrically those metaphors are amped up with verse like, "Maybe a taste of something sweet is all you'll need." And while Green also goes so far as to rhyme money and honey he does successfully manage to do so in a very clever way.  
 
The cinematography for the video is a win, starting with silhouettes and moving into kaleidoscope imagery and reverse effects with urban and club scenes. The video doesn't really tell a love story as much as it synchronizes up with the dreamy atmosphere of the song. One of my personal favorite moments is when the central female figure in the video appears to sprout butterfly wings. I imagine the sequence was difficult to coordinate and the payoff is well worth it.  
 
Save the date,  Mike Green performs Live November 11th on Hunnypot Live #429
