Scarlett Johansson “Falling Down” video

Posted May 1st, 2008 by eric

I’ve been reading some ho-hum impressions of Scarlett Johansson’s debut single, “Falling Down”, and, after listening myself, I must say I’m sort of surprised by the complaints. It’s nowhere near as meh as people are saying. I was expecting it to be horrible based on some of the hyperbolic headlines. Granted, it’s not great. It’s tough to cover Tom Waits, though. So, points just for trying. And I think Scarlett sounds like Sinead O’Connor in the lower register parts, which is certainly not a slight. I know Scarlett can sing; she’s just very subdued on this single. The video is right boring, though. But guess what? The whole storyline is “Scarlett Johansson gets all hotted up”, so you know it can’t be that bad.
