Kris Allen Is Running Out The Clock


Baby-faced American Idol victor Kris Allen’s first music video, for his cover of the Script’s seize-the-day anthem “Live Like We’re Dying,” is a simple—and pretty beautifully shot!—affair in which he performs in front of a desert-erected clock, which is presumably counting down the minutes until “living like we’re dying” turns into something that involves lopping off the first three words of that phrase. It’s a pretty effective clip, although I would like to voice my objection to the old “piano on the sand” trope that’s rapidly turning into a Serious Artist video cliché—especially since in this arrangement, the piano plays, like, fourth string to all of the strumming going on. (No pun intended, ha ha ha.) Related: I will be on NPR’s Weekend All Things Considered this, er, weekend, talking about Allen’s new record, as well as new releases from other Simon Cowell-assisted singers like Adam Lambert, Carrie Underwood, and Susan Boyle.
