The video for “Wishlist” is official, but I’ve never before seen it in a proper upload on youtube. I don’t think it’s even on the A Pink Vevo page (hardly anybody watches A Pink videos there, but the uploads are relatively recent and they don’t have the various A Pink Diary episodes and so forth, which makes it a good place to get at their mvs quickly).
No, the only version we’ve seen before is a fuzzy old upload which unfortunately cheapened the experience of this minimalistic yet gorgeous interpretation of what is arguably the greatest song on Seven Springs of A Pink and one of the most hymnal and hymeneal of A Pink’s classic tunes.
Yes, it’s profoundly minimalist– so much so that I can’t be sure whether the placement swap-outs between Hayoung and Bomi were intentional, or just an editing splice-of-convenience between two takes. Yet the enchantment of this video is so sublime, so irradiant, so pure, that I have to regard it as one of the best things ever filmed. And I cannot praise the song itself enough– it absolutely thrills me with the very sense of the divine every time I hear it. In Heaven, they must have songs like this– I think they must have this very song itself, in fact, so overflowing is its sense of yearning conjoined with blessed fulfillment, pouring forth boundlessly, astounding, empyrean.
So this is a banner event, to be able to enjoy it in the full clarity its angelic treatment of A Pink deserves. God bless you, 1theK. And God protect and keep A Pink, always!
