Amason 'I Want To Know What Love Is' by Filip Nilsson
The eternal search for love. The eternal search for the world's favourite cryptid. One in the same, surely? Amason's straight-faced cover of Foreigner's nearly ridiculous '80s gem gets the visual accompaniment of a ridiculous idea played totally deadpan for some surprisingly poetic results.
There's not much to be said about this video that isn't covered by Filip Nilsson's wonderful, hyperbolic backstory. So it's probably best if I leave it to him...
"I first heard Amason play the song live, in the summer 2015. It completely swept my feet and reminded me about my longtime friend Erick, the man in the video, who once told me that he can’t even remember the sensation of love.
"As I’m already blessed to live with a person who shows me love, I shortly after the concert called Erick to ask how he was, and if he wanted to tell me more about his solitude? During this call, that went on all night, I came across a study that said that the Yeti (in some civilizations called Bigfoot) is the most loving creature around.
"Erick could instantly see why, just like him he thought, the Yeti was misunderstood in all its attempts to intimacy. So we decided there and then, me still high on emotions from the tone, to let everything else be and find the Yeti.
"We travelled for six months and the search took us to Brazil, Sweden and Switzerland. The video shows pieces of the quest, and what other music to complement it, then the tune that started it all?
"As far as I know Erick is still single."
