Mick Jagger’s new video has evolved

Yesterday we posted a video from Muck Jagger’s VIVO channel on Youtube.

It was a tune that clearly dealt with, shall we say, our issues. But was cleverly done so that there was a good deal of ambiguity as to what side he had come down on. In the comments, everyone seemed to be claiming Jagger as theirs.

The song had a breakdown in the middle with a well known, except to me, rapper with a quasi political message and Jagger’s lion’s share of the tune could easily be interpreted as a lament at the country of England, ceasing to be.

Today, the video and song has changed. The rap segment is missing, there was a remix of the tune, and the video now has a distinct story with actual dialogue. There are lots of clues in it as well, some, as a non-Brit will be lost on me.

But lets look at a few of them here.

First, as Kel Fritzi of Blog Talk Radio, so studiously observed, the main character was wearing ta very similar tie as Neville Chamberlain wore. In fact the one Chamberlain wore during his “peace in our time” speech.

The main person in the Jagger video. Check out the tie.

Now the original from NC:

At one point, the main character of the video interacts with a station wagon. Afterwards at one point, you can distinctly see the letters, GB on the back of the station wagon, but they are NOT there a moment before.

And at the end, the main character whistles, “Pomp and Circumstance” after being asked a rather telling question by the people that surround him.

Please listen to, and watch this new version of the song, and leave your opinion of what the message is in the comments. Doubly so if you are British.

The song at the end with words.

  1. I’ll bite:

    The English Everyman. He is followed by someone, some thing. He is very frightened. Panicked. Whatever it is he feels it is a grave threat to himself. Note at 1:50 what looks like a paratrooper in the sky. This is a foreshadow of military dominance not by foreign power but domestic. When he trips over the boy’s bicycle the boy says, “You should get that looked at.” But when the Everyman looks at the boy the expression is not of an innocent young man but rather something knowing and menacing. The GB that runs him over is the least suggestive so most literal subtext. It is important when He dashes into the sea. Reminding all it is an island. The Suits–yes all suits but for the young girl who SHOULD represent the rebellion of youth–asks what the hell were you thinking?(paraphrased). It is about tyrannical state control.

    I refrained from commenting on the first version but I understood. Speaking in subtext is better than speaking in prison where nobody hears, and a few on the same wavelength will clue in. The rebel Jagger proves himself a great and still relevant artist IMHO. This is an expensive, elaborate, thoughtful statement by a proud Brit. I welcome any challenge to my interpretation.

    • Johnnyu, absolutely no challenge needed, you nailed it beautifully. May I add: The scene where the protagonist is running away… The water doesn’t get deeper, it will not allow his escape through his revelation of dire folly. I think he realizes it when he whistles “Pomp and Circumstance.” But he is whistling past the graveyard which is England.

    • 1:50 – not paratrooper but street lamp on a tall lamp post.

      just to notice – going to the sea symbolizes return to archaics and chaos.

      he starts in the city, then comes to rural area, then comes to the sea.
      not using any transport for the trip.
      that should be long run – a marathon or something.
      we realize it unconsciously, as we feel that guy is very tired.

      BTW the face of that guy is similar to Enoch Powell’s.

      • Yes it sort of is, And the tie is very close to Chamberlain’s. Still, where is it going?

        You know, back at the time of Powel, the BBC and other media tried to make it look like the Stones and the Beatles hated him. But for sure the Beatles did not. The original pre-production lyrics of “Get back” which are rare but can be heard, were about Pakistanis taking all their full time jobs, get back to where you once belonged” etc. There is an outtakes LP of them doing those lyrics I have heard myself. Baby your a rich fag, baby your a rich fag, baby your a rich fag Jew, was the original chorus of Baby your a rich man, and was dedicated to their manger,Brian Epstein.

        These were working class Liverpudlians. Of course the Marxist left hijacked them all to the narrative as we now know, the culture is the chief battlefield of contemporary postmodernists.

    • DING DING DING – Nobody noticed the guys on the beach are the same ones that exited the elevator.

      Also, the TIE – I think the same tie is worn by one, if not two, of the guys on the elevator.

  2. The only thing I can add to what Johnny said is that at the beginning there were a few notes that sounded like the theme from “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” it quickly went into the main song and I didn’t hear them again. The ending reminded me of both “1984”, “Brave New World” and “Clockwork Orange:.

    I don’t know how anyone can see that version and not think of the Islamic Invasion and the Treason of the British Politicians.

    • I left the first reply. The one with the lyrics but video is different, produced by Jagger.
      This requires deep analysis. You do see a man without a head next to one holding a head. Interesting the background of print media.
      A lot of material to delve on in this video of the same song.
      I suggest not listening to the video but rather slowly pass the mouse on each frame.

    • So now to the message of the video. My take. (Which is opposite to the lyrics).

      The European Leaders all exit the lift. But the Brit wants to go his own way. The authorities watch him.
      Overhead the parachute remindS of the war that was once fought to liberate Europe.

      Collision with the youth is to realize they are brain washed.

      The car that was the blunt force of tyranny suddenly becomes the good force that he now has to run from. The enemy occupies the seats of power.

      Into the sea with nowhere to go. The White Socialists with their indentured drag him back.

      All that is left, to half-remind him of the soul that once was England, is the tune to Land of Hope and Glory.

      England Lost.

      That this England of decency and character is lost.

      (Nothing to do with Mick Jagger’s lament of Little Englanders causing him to lose excursions to Europe).

  3. Hey, I’d expect no less sophisticated cynicism passing as critisicm from London critics. They’d rather autofellate in stylish prose rather than dig deep for the postmodern nightmare that Jagger
    dares evoke. When was the last time they wrote Dead Flowers?

    • A man who has travelled, received the largess of life and returns to England to find it lost in greater legislation. No more swinging London. Drug Laws in Singapore are the strictest on the Planet. I geddit. https://www.tripsavvy.com/drug-laws-in-singapore-1629780

      “I lost a blunt, think I lost the pint
      She can go home and smoke a joint, anyway
      Do you wanna go?
      I went to find England, it wasn’t there
      I went to find England, it wasn’t there
      I think I lost it in the back of my chair
      I think I’m losing my imagination
      I’m tired of talking about immigration
      You can’t get in and you can’t get out”

      “Had a girl in Lisbon, a girl in Rome
      Now I’ll have to stay at home
      So lock the shallows, bolt the doors
      London’s gonna be like Singapore
      Don’t know what’s home
      Lost, lost, lost, lost
      They didn’t turn up, the comments complain
      No real person is matching their shame
      They’re much too young and much too old
      Growing much too hot and much too cold
      That’s what I thought”

      They are not jivin’.

      And the Social Commentators thought he was Bob Dylan.

      • Watch or read, The Master and Margarita, then listen to Sympathy for the Devil. For that matter, also watch South park, Margaritaville, also an homage to the Russian dissident literature.

      • “The Emperor has no clothes!”
        Said little Tommy Tuck
        The Muslims cried ‘Allah Knows’
        Just as he was struck.
        “The Emperor has no clothes!”
        Heard greater-mommy’s cuck
        Taking offence for all Rainbows
        No child should have the pluck.
        “The Emperor has no clothes!”
        He ran and hid and duck
        The words upon they all chose
        Made past become their luck.

        • We project onto someone who’s complaining about beer and fags taken away when most of us knew twenty years ago something was wrong.

          • Of course, when you read The Flying Inn, by Chesterton in 1914, 103 years ago, that is exactly what he is complaining about in the event of a Muslim take-over.

  4. The last line – delivered by the little girl – reminds me of a scene from Houllebecqe’s novel, Submission . . . Remember when the protagonist has a conversation with his Israeli girlfriend when he learns she’s moving to Israel? It’s something to the effect of “I don’t have an Israel – There’s no where else I can go . . .?”

  5. Great post.
    Lyrics are what they say, England is lost.
    The girl reminding him that there was no where to go.
    Mick is saying what we are saying. England is lost.
    The guitars on the 2nd song just rock. Great stuff.
    I gleaned a little optimism from the girl. Then again
    mebbe it’s me. Rock out Stones ..

  6. I see it as a message to English men to stop running away. English celebrities like Jagger have often run away to tax havens, for example. The end, little girl: “Where did you think you could go?” “I don’t know what came over me.” Little girl: “Pull yourself together.” Man whistles “Land of hope and glory.” End.

  7. We as a culture – a nation – a country have been fed a lie and / or deceived ourselves into thinking we are racists / islamaphobic – maybe Mick has realized, as he has aged and looks back at his life – is making a comment about this.

    It is interesting that the only people who speak are the children – who do not act or speak childish

    Also interesting that the 2 men who drag him out of the sea are white and black – while all the men who stalk him are white.

    But perhaps the most significant thing is the title – Englands lost – lost from whom?

    From herself?

    And as he turns at the end – so long as he whistles Land of Hope and glory – then England will still exist – keep smiling – keep taking the drugs – keep being polite – stop looking

    Actually I think he has not changed at all, he is still a looney leftie, he is trying to say that the UK is turning into Singapore and if you sing a patriotic song it will be alright. All I can say to Mick Jagger and his drug addled mind is Tommy Robinson, up yours Mick Jagger!

  10. Overall, he’s the last sane man on an island prison of madmen.
    Everywhere he runs, people are watching him. At the 1:46 mark, there is a girl sitting up on the wall watching him run. He can never run fast enough to evade the surveillance state. Even when he escapes the city into the countryside, the eyes are there.
    At 2:30, a brief expression of relief crosses his face. He thinks he’s going to make it, but then he hits the bicycle that actually cut him off. His pants are torn and he’s bleeding. The bicyclist seems unaffected by the collision, and yet the runner is the one to apologize for the collision, even though he did not cause it. The false concern of the bicyclist holds him there long enough for his pursuers to catch up. The bicycle wasn’t enough to convince him to stop, so next it’s a car (the state itself, as indicated by the GB on the back).
    His flight continues to the water, but oddly, he is able to run along the surface of the water. (I don’t know why, but the when he runs onto the wide beach, it made me think of Dunkirk). The water surrounding Great Britain isn’t a barrier against invasion any longer, and/or it isn’t what’s keeping its people prisoner.
    The girl tells the chilling truth with the rhetorical question: “Where did you think you could go?” Run away from England, but they have the same situation across the Channel (Europe is lost as well). Dragged back to the beach and jarred back into consensus, the runner decides to join them since apparently they cannot be beaten.
    About the lyrics: “I went around the back, but they said ‘Piss off.'” His attempt to protest to the powers-that-be (behind the scenes) is rebuffed. “Lock the shutters, and bolt the door; London’s going to be like Singapore.” As a result of the unrestrained immigration being forced upon it, England will become a mish-mash of Eastern religions and cultures, with Western culture being a bare few percentages above all the others.
    I think it’s a protest to the murder of English civilization in the name of globalism and conquest-by-immigration.

    • That is really good. Thank you. I had noticed that the man hit was the one to apologize to the cyclist, and puzzled over that but omitted it from my notes. The expressions and attitudes of each actor really do matter in this, and I think it really does have a lot of depth.

      As mentioned before, Sympathy for the Devil was a tribute to The Master and Margarita. So Mr. Jagger is no stranger to great literature. I would think he could not avoid seeing the similarities between contemporary England and the works of Orwell, Huxley, Kafka, Bradbury and so many more who suddenly look like prophets.

      • Thanks. I do think there is a lot happening in the video that we haven’t even hit on yet. It’s nice to actually have music and videos that provoke thought for a change.

  11. Has anyone noticed that for most of the song, he sings ‘England Lost’, but the last few times he says ‘England’s Lost’?

    I think this is a very important point he is making.

    Whether the ‘ ‘s ‘ stands for ‘is’ or for ‘has’, it definitely counterpoints the underlying metaphore of the humanity of whaterver it is the song is about.

  12. Something else I noticed, but I had to do a little research on first, is the man on the left side of the shot at 4:24. The position of his hand and arm in that manner is reputedly an Illuminati signal (an Illuminati reference was inevitable, wasn’t it?) for sacrifice, either as punishment for an initiate revealing privileged information, or as a person sacrificing themselves for the good of the order. In this context, I’d say the runner is the one who is about to be sacrificed.

    From: http://kentroversypapers.blogspot.com/2006/03/eyes-wide-shut-occult-symbolism.html

    “This is representative of one type of Illuminati symbolism, which is shown and discussed in chapter fifteen of Texe Marrs’ Codex Magica, pgs. 295-305, an authoritative book on Illuminati signs and symbols.

    “As Marrs himself points out on pgs. 296-297 of Codex Magica:

    ‘A number of dictionaries of symbols state that the hand placed on the neck signifies sacrifice. Now, sacrifice can have at least two meanings — one, the continuing threat of the penalties to be applied to punish those adepts and initiates who so impertinently reveal the secrets of the Order; and two, the willingness of the individual performing the sign to sacrifice himself for the good of the Order, or for the good of the cause or Great Work of the Illuminati.’”
