Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #38 – “The Riddle of the Model,” from Sing Street

 

38. “The Riddle of the Model,” from Sing Street

How can you not love this song? That whole video they throw together in the alleyway. It’s perfect. What’s great about it is that, apart from the joke being that it’s just kids in an alleyway with costumes, having no idea how to make a music video… the song is actually kinda good. The whole sequence is just wonderful. Plus the notion that the only reason the song exists is because he has a crush on a girl and invites her to be in the music video for his band, so he creates the band and writes the song just to be around her. It’s wonderful.
