Directed by Pele Kudren, Kyle McNeil'sSuzanne (not to be confused with Leonard Cohens similarly crestfallen but slightly less bitter song of the same name) takes a close look at the paralyzing effects of an ex-girlfriend who just straight effed you up. The video alternates between close-ups of Kyle singing alone in a motel room and grainy shots of him doing other "lone-man-with-his-guitar"-type things like smoking butts by a window sill, pensive face washing, and sulking down forlorn halls.
With a voice that sounds like swallowing a mouthful of tears, Kyle sings, "Suzanne, you made a mess of me / You cut my love and you let it bleed / Oh, Suzanne." Fortunately for this God-awful-sounding ex, Kyle doesn't actually name names -- "Suzanne" is just an alias. --Excerpeted from Rachel Dady's MTV Buzzworthy Blog
