Pink Floyd’s “High Hopes” music video is a wonderful example of one of the first times art concepts and direction were heavily incorporated into full length song.
The film for it’s time set a new bar for incorporating surrealistic imagery, as well as symbology into a music video.
via Wiki: “The video was directed by Storm Thorgerson and features a man looking over the Fens at Ely Cathedral, the same building which can be seen between the metal heads on the cover of the album. Also, the video has many references to Cambridge, where Syd Barrett, Roger Waters and David Gilmour grew up, the university scarves, bikes and punts on the river being obvious ones. In particular many scenes are set in St. John’s College, including the Bridge of Sighs. Also shown is an oversized bust of Syd Barrett.”
