Video of the Moment #241: Lykke Li

Even people who dismiss the Twilight series of books and movies have to admit that their soundtracks are fantastic. Twilight fans will recognize ‘Possibilities’ as the song playing in ‘New Moon’ when Bella is in the depths of her depression. The subdued and haunting track perfectly captured the mood of that part of the book and set the tone for the scene.

It’s almost a shame that Lykke Li has never included this track on one of her own albums. It’s stunning in its simplicity, and has a truly heartbreaking chorus: “So tell me when you hear my heart stop / You’re the only one who knows / Tell me when you hear my silence / There’s a possibility I wouldn’t know.” Capturing the first ever live performance of ‘Possibilities’ in a dimly-lit studio, this simple black and white video is the perfect accompaniment to the track.
