Under the Weather (3:36)

Cover of Eye to the Telescope

From Eye to the Telescope and 6 other releases

Wistful and evocative, this piece definitely has a longing in it. Like many of KT’s lyrics, you can derive various levels of meaning from the track. The video shows her isolated in what many would consider a fairly cozy, lovely little nest in the middle of very green Scotland. Maybe that’s what the “feels like home” reference is. Scotland is stormy and definitely influenced by the weather. On the other hand, the longing part seems to do with KT’s love life, in that she longs for someone to hold.

The video is remarkable in that it doesn’t try to turn KT into a porn star. She is shot in clothes which I can very much believe she wears on a daily basis. Having said that, there is still an incredibly sexy “accidental” belly shot; made all the more sexy due to its seeming to just happen. That momentary flash of her tummy is both cute and sexy.

This song seems to be saying that KT can handle anything, that troubled times are not at all trouble for her, that even the darkest rainy day has a rainbow for her.

Even if it has to be digitally painted in.
