The Mellow Brick Road. The Wizard of Oz condensed into 4 minutes, with soundtrack by Pogo.

Every time I come across a new Pogo song I go "Okay, this will be the one I don't enjoy at all" and so far that has never happened.

Fantastic stuff. I love everything I've seen by Pogo, and that video was very good - beautifully expressive while not using much detail. Also, I need to see that movie again now.

Vimeo fail.

The Vimeo works fine for me, but it's also on Youtube here.

Thanks, Gordafarin, that was great! (I wouldn't have complained, only it seems I'm not the only one with Vimeo trouble.)

1) That was completely awesome.

2) WoO must have even more filler than I realized, because the whole story is there. Some of that is the songs, but a lot must just be panorama shots and whatnot.

3) I liked how the different character voices were added to the soundtrack as they appeared. But then he (is Pogo a boy?) used neither the Wicked Witch nor Oz the Great and Terrible, both of whom have very distinctive voices. That was disappointing.

Oh wait--the video was made after the song? I guess that explains some timing mismatches. But not why Wicked and Oz weren't present. Surely those evocative voices could've added something.

Perhaps because the Wizard and Witch don't sing?

Pogo is a dude, yes.
