Ambrosia - Holding on to yesterday


video

There are a lot of songs about missing an ex, but this one has some very heartfelt lyrics. "Holdin' On To Yesterday" was Ambrosia's first major hit. Released in 1975 on their self titled album "Ambrosia"; "Holdin' On To Yesterday" peaked at #17 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
To be honest, I thought this would be a very easy song to build a video around, I was wrong. This turned out to be a very difficult video to create. Out of all the stock footage I have on hand and hours of searching for "ANYTHING" that would work for this song, I resorted to viewing short films, (which indecently is VERY time consuming). I finally found a film that really had nothing to do with this song at all, but with a little imagination and some editing, I thought some of the clips would work well. And at the unintentional risk of sounding egotistical, I nailed it perfectly, right down to the last note. This video is obviously a dream with an easy storyline to follow, but has some very cool subtle scenes that can be easily missed the first time watching it. I missed a couple and I built the damn thing. Very cool video, Hope you all enjoy it.
