Beautifully Cathartic

If you read this blog with any regularity, you know I love music videos. I'm pulling one from the archives here and it goes down as one my favorites. Duets are such a risky thing - when you put two legends together the results can often be underwhelming. This song and this video, however, are shining examples of when 1+1 can equal 3. The love they feel for each other is palpable and when they hug, you can viscerally see how protective they are of each other. This video is our modern day version of Edvard Munch's The Scream. We watch Michael and Janet living in their fame bubble and all the frustrations that come with that. I would be hard-pressed to find a video that communicates so much in under five minutes. This one's a classic.
