Music Video Monday: Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner (Lauren O’Connell)

Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner is a classic, haunting song by the late, great Warren Zevon. This cover is by Lauren O’Connell, a young singer/songwriter who regularly uses Youtube to share her work.

I like this style of video, showing the actual process of making the music rather a skit or dance to go along with it. Jack Conte of Pomplamoose does this type of video very well and I am always glad to see more people take up the style.
